Topless Princess Diana pics 'upset' Prince William after he was taunted by schoolfriends

Vogue publisher and friend of Princess Diana, Nicholas Coleridge has revealed that her eldest son and future heir to the throne, Prince William, allegedly called his mother in distress after fellow Eton schoolboys taunted him over topless vacation pics.

Per the Daily Mail, Conde Nast's chairman Coleridge reveals in his soon-to-be published memoirs that Princess Diana visited him for lunch after images of her sunbathing topless in Spain had been published in newspapers and circulated online.

According to Nicholas, she said: "Nicholas, can I ask you something? Please be truthful. Did you see the photograph of me in the Daily Mirror? The topless one?"

Speaking about Prince William, Diana reportedly added: "He was so upset. He said some of the boys were teasing him saying my t**s are too small... Are my breasts too small, do you think?"

A "breathless" Nicholas then allegedly told Princess Di that her chest was "perfect" and reassured her "not to worry".

Back in 2017, Prince William sought £1.3 million ($1.62 million) compensation over topless photos of wife Kate Middleton. The invasive snaps were published in French Closer magazine in 2012, and showed William and Kate were relaxing on the terrace of a chateau in the southern region of Provence.

Long-lens cameras captured Kate sunbathing topless, while only wearing a pair of bikini bottoms. The Mail reports that an image of William rubbing suncream into his wife's skin caused particular upset in the family.

Per the Daily Mail, The Duke of Cambridge said the images were "all the more painful" as the constant hounding of the paparazzi photographers reminded him of Princess Diana's death in Paris back in 1997.

Later that year, the French celebrity magazine was ordered to pay €103,000 ($113,400) in damages to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - a fraction of what the couple was seeking.
