I, LIKE most citizens, am angry and disgusted by the French magazine's decision to publish photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge on holiday in France (News, September 15).

I am disgusted with the attitude of the female editor of the magazine, who could not see anything wrong with her decision.

Have the French got so short a memory that they forget how William's mother, Diana, was driven to her death in Paris?

I hope and wish that David Cameron demands a full apology from his opposite number in France and that something is done to the magazine and, in particular, the editor who gave the ok to publish these photos.
