  • PARIS (AP) — French police have opened their criminal investigation into whether topless photos of Prince William's wife Kate — which appeared in an edition of the French Closer magazine — were an invasion of privacy.

    A French court ordered police to obtain information on Closer magazine employees after the British royal couple filed the criminal complaint Monday.
