Irish Daily Star editor resigns over Kate Middleton topless photos

The editor of the Irish Daily Star resigned Saturday "as a result of the publication on 15 September 2012" of topless photos of the duchess of Cambridge, according to a statement from the paper.

The images showed Catherine Middleton, the wife of Britain's Prince William, sunbathing, igniting a firestorm of controversy in the British media and stern comments from Buckingham Palace.

The editor, Michael O'Kane, had been suspended earlier after the September 15 edition hit the newsstands.

    The Duchess of Cambridge had every reason to assume that she would not be photographed or even seen in her privacy.
    Any consequences suffered by the invaders of such privacy should be expected.

      I agree, starting with the editor who made the idiot decision to buy and publish the photographs.
