The gossip magazine that published the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge is also being sued by France’s First Lady for printing pictures of her in a bikini.
Valerie Trierweiler, 47, is demanding £20,000 in damages from Closer for invading her privacy during her holiday.
The president’s partner has already been awarded £1,500 after the highly unflattering snaps appeared in glossy French magazine VSD.
Closer has branded the First Lady’s demand for compensation “the height of hypocrisy”.
Editor Laurence Pieau has issued a full-page statement attacking Ms Trierweiler - published on the page after its photos of Kate.
