The family of Pippa and James Middleton are angry over recently circulated nude photos of the two and are taking action to have them removed, the Telegraph is reporting today.
The popularity of Kate Middleton's siblings skyrocketed after they appeared at Kate and William's wedding. Pippa, who wore a tight Alexander McQueen dress, has Facebook pages and websites now devoted to her butt. James Middleton did the wedding's only reading and later appeared with the rest of the family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
Shortly after the wedding old photos of the two surfaced. While Pippa's "scandalous" photo was fairly innocent (she is seen dancing in a skirt and bra with a gentleman friend), James' were much racier. He is seen completely naked in several of them, while others featured his bare bottom and him (along with friends) dressed in drag. One even showed James and a friend simulating gay sex.
A friend of the family reports that the family is furious, and sees the release of the photos as "a betrayal." It is believed that friends of James and Pippa downloaded the photos from Facebook and sold them for substantial sums after the wedding.
The same friend continued: "James and Pippa are really embarrassed. How were they supposed to know when these pictures were taken that they would be put under such scrutiny?"
Zuma Press' John Camarillo confirms that the photos have been taken off the market following action by the Middleton family.
Pippa and James Middleton surely must have known they'd become objects of intense scrutiny and attention after their sister married into the royal family, but their friends should be ashamed of themselves for attempting to profit off their friendship.
