QUESTIONS have been raised on why royal protection police failed to stop topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge being taken - or alert her and Prince William to the lurking danger.

Just three weeks ago their fellow officers failed to prevent photos of a naked Prince Harry being taken in Las Vegas.

A paparazzo would have used a super telephoto lens to capture the images of topless Kate which appeared in Closer magazine.

It is thought the photographer would have used a vantage point on the nearest public road where the Chateau d’Autet can clearly be seen a kilometre away across a valley.

Ken Wharfe, who guarded Princess Diana, said: ‘The concern is that their security team apparently did not liaise with French police and security.

"If a photographer can poke a lens through some greenery and take these type of pictures then a gunman with a high powered weapon and telescopic sight could have done far worse. That is really shocking.

"How this area was not checked out by their security people is unbelievable. These shots were taken from a public road for God’s sake.

"There should have been an exclusion zone put around the place in which they were staying."

The photographer would have used a 600mm or 800mm telephoto lens with a ‘doubler’ attachment that increases the magnification of the lens..

The image would then be edited to further magnify the shot of the Duchess – and digitally enhanced to improve the quality and definition of the final picture.
