Paris • A French court on Monday will consider issuing an injunction against the French magazine Closer over its publication of topless photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge.

The news came as Prince William and his wife, the former Kate Middleton , arrived in the Solomon islands for a two day visit.

The couple have accused the magazine of violating her privacy by publishing the photos, taken while she was on a private estate in Provence, southern France.

An Irish newspaper has since published the photos, while other European publications have said they are considering doing so.

More than 200 police officers are involved in covering the couple’s visit, partly over concerns about the Solomon Islands’ volatile political situation.

A protest against the government last year erupted into violence and local authorities have warned against any similar action while the duke and duchess are in the Solomon Islands.
