The editor of Daily Star , Michael O’Kane, has been suspended for publishing the naked photos of Kate Middleton.
In a statement the paper has said:
“Independent Star Limited has suspended editor Michael O’Kane with immediate effect, pending an investigation into the circumstances that led to the Irish Daily Star re-publishing pages from the French magazine Closer, which contained images of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
Michael then defended the action of publishing the photos by saying:
“She’s not the future queen of Ireland, so really the only place this is causing fury seems to be in the UK. She decides to partially disrobe on a balcony where it can be seen from a public road and she’s stunned now, or the Palace are annoyed that people are interested in this.”
