News exploded this week that Kate Middleton had been photographed without her top on while she was sunbathing in France. The royals then announced they would sue the French magazine Closer, which published the photos. And its publisher now says she has even more scandalous pictures of the couple.

The British royals were catching some rays on the grounds of the private French chateau owned by Queen Elizabeth II's nephew, Lord Linley, when the scandolous shots were taken.

The magazine published the photos with the headline, "Oh My God! Les photos qui vont faire le tour de monde!" That translates as "The photos that will go around the world!"

In a video appearing below and hosted by the Guardian, Closer editor Laurence Pieau defended her choice to publish the salacious pictures of the royal couple -- and hinted she might have even have pictures of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, caught in a more compromising act than just sunbathing.

"One shouldn't dramatize these pictures. The reactions are a little disproportionate. What we saw in the pictures was a young couple that have just married, who are in love, who are beautiful. She's the princess of the 21st century," Pieau said.

"They are on a balcony of a mansion in the south of France near a road along which cars pass without any problem. They are visible from the street," the editor noted.

"They are a young couple in love. She's a woman who is topless just like the ones seen on all the beaches of France and the world. They are full of joy and are not degrading," she pointed out.

"She's topless, they're in love," Pieau said. "He's putting on cream [presumably sunblock]. The comments are soft. It's a nice series which we have a worldwide exclusive on."

Pieau then begins to talk about how the pictures have been compared to Prince Harry's naked vacation shot in Las Vegas, but she dismisses those comparisons because the pictures of Prince William and Kate Middleton are not degrading.

"I won't hide the fact that there are more intimate pictures that exist that we haven't published and will not publish," Pieau said. "We're in the celebrity business, and we know that these images are full of joy, not degrading, and concern a princess who is pretty and is making the whole world dream.

Even though Pieau is saying she wouldn't publish the more "intimate" photos, why would she even bring them up in the first place?

Maybe it's Pieau's way of warning the British royal family to abandon its budding lawsuit or else she will release the "intimate" photos.
