Why didn't Sweden care about topless Kate pics?
Despite an ongoing royal uproar, a Swedish magazine on Wednesday decided to publish topless pictures of Prince William's wife Catherine. Was the decision right? And why didn't Swedes seem to react?

The latest issue of Swedish celebrity magazine Se och Hör, which hit newsstands on Wednesday, features a three-page spread of the former Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Cambridge, sunbathing topless in the south of France.

Ever since the pictures were first published last week by a French magazine, the British royals have made no secret of their anger, going so far as to seeking criminal charges in France.

However, the reaction in Sweden paled in comparison to the stir caused in other countries where the pictures were published.


Should the Swedish magazine and others have opted to publish the topless pictures? And what is it about Sweden that prompted such a non-reaction?

What would the reaction been in Sweden had the pictures had featured a half-naked Crown Princess Victoria or her sister, Princess Madeleiene?
