Pics! Kate's Baby Bump
Investigators are still trying to determine if photographer Valerie Suau snapped the infamous pics of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing — sans bikini top — at a French chateau. In the meantime, she has been charged with taking photos of Kate in a bathing suit.  
A source told the paper that Suau, who works for the regional paper La Provence, is “not concerned” about the charge and admits to taking the bathing suit pics, but not the topless ones.
The investigation, requested by St. James Palace, is ongoing.
