Royal Scandal: Empowering the Royal Dutchess

Friday, October 05, 2012 Simone Lerwick 0 Comments

Who would’ve thought that after her engagement and wedding to England’s well loved prince, William, Kate Middleton would continue to be up front and center on the pages of the English tabloids? Only this time, it was not about her great fashion sense that can make an ordinary pair ankle boots look like a million bucks. She was not wearing a McQueen wedding gown. In fact, Kate was not wearing anything at all. I’m talking about the nude photos of her while spending the day sunbathing. These controversial shots were published in Closer magazine.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William have remained mum and calm amidst the issue. According to the Royal family’s spokesperson, they are letting the ongoing legal case do the talking for them. These actions would surely not make the matters any worse.

Looking at the glitzy world of the rich and famous, many have fallen victims to the sly paparazzi lingering around them. These “celebrity spies” cover almost every inch of this plant just capture a would-be-scandalous photo when these celebrities let their hair down.

Here are 5 of the most scandalous paparazzi shots that walked the World Wide Web in recent times:

Celebrity Shocker # 1 Demi Moore

Before, seeing steamy photos of Demi Moore in Ashton Kutcher’s Twitter account could have passed as sweet. I wonder if Demi creeps out when she sees her photos online but not in her ex-husbands page.

Celebrity Shocker # 2 Scarlett Johansson

I’m pretty sure it scared the hell out of Scarlett when the phone got stolen. True enough, her sexy photos that she took for ex-hubby Ryan Reynolds spread like wildfire over the internet after the stealing incident.

Celebrity Shocker # 3 Lindsay Lohan

I’d like to classify this case as do-anything-to-get-attention-when-your-career-has-gone-bad. La Lohan just can’t seem to find her attention grabbing niche. Aside from all the free publicity she’s getting from the police and legal courts, the Freaky Friday star was caught on by surveillance camera walking away with a $ 2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Los Angeles.

Celebrity Shocker # 4 Prince Harry

In one of my previous posts, we’ve dished out on how Harry joined the ranks of the celebrity wild child. Naked pictures of him from a wild Las Vegas party went viral all over the internet after it has been published by TMZ.

They are only 4 of the prominent individuals who have suffered (or somehow benefited) from the cruel hands of our technology today. Popular is not much of the “in” thing today, it’s more or less getting viral that counts.

As for Kate’s royal mishap, she’s not the only one - which makes it less of a fuss, if you ask me. We can just probably think of it as a right of passage into the world of the rich and famous. Let’s leave the matter to their army of lawyers. In the meantime, we can all savor the moment (photos) while they last.
