The day started fairly bright and sunny, but at midday we began to be treated to occasional downpours. This gave rise to nice cloudscapes, a few examples of which head up this post. The showers ceased after nightfall.

So, should royals be allowed to sunbathe topless, without footlong camera lenses peeking at them from every angle? I'd say so. If that were done to anybody else, the culprits would be apprehended for voyeurism if anything. I can understand why William and Kate are entering litigation against the French publication which posted her topless pics (taken presumably without consent) - not just for reasons of privacy, but particularly because William's mother (Princess Diana) was killed indirectly as a result of press harassment. Having said that, I do feel that those in the public eye should exercise caution in situations like this.
