Kate Middleton's topless photos are just the latest snaps proving to be a royal pain for the royal f …

Now Kate Middleton knows how royal flesh-flasher Prince Harry must feel - her alleged topless photos have become a media sensation.

The blurry photos published in the French magazine Closer were taken from a distance and purportedly show Kate sunbathing sans her bikini top on the terrace of a hunting lodge in France. Kate has worked hard to construct a very modest, lady-like look for herself, so she must be rather mortified by the topless photos.

At least Kate's not alone -- the royal family has had to deal with quite a few nude photo scandals over the years. However, it is a bit unfortunate for Kate that a majority of the scandals involve her family members. Here's a look at who has given the Queen a headache by being caught on camera without clothes:

Sarah Ferguson

In 1996, Prince Andrew and fiery redhead Fergie split after she was captured on camera sunbathing topless and getting her toes sucked by her financial adviser. At least Kate Middleton can take comfort in knowing that she wasn't caught with another man during her topless time.

Prince Harry

Harry must be relieved that his sister-in-law's alleged topless snaps have stolen the spotlight away from his game of strip billiards in Vegas. Maybe he'll cheekily invite Kate to play next time.

Pippa Middleton

The Middleton gals are a regular pair of sun goddesses - photographs of Pippa sunbathing topless also hit the web last year while Will and Kate were off on their honeymoon. In the six-year-old photos, Pippa can be seen doffing her top while relaxing on a boat with Will and Kate. The future Duchess of Cambridge was smart enough not to join her sister by baring her breasts back then, but maybe she's gotten bolder now that Will has put a ring on it.

James Middleton

That's right - the Middleton brother has also been caught showing a bit of skin. Last year photos surfaced showing James mooning the camera; mimicking sex acts; and pulling a Harry by posing completely nude and covering up his crotch with his hand. Maybe Harry needs to invite James on his next Vegas trip.

Katrina Darling

But Kate's distant cousin has flashed more flesh than all the Middletons combined - the 22-year-old burlesque dancer who does a royal-themed strip routine recently posed for the September issue of Playboy. Kate will probably be receiving her own offer from Hugh Hefner any day now.

Prince William

Will had his privacy breached in a big way when he was caught with the crown jewels on display back in 2008 - the future King of England was photographed relieving himself on what appeared to be an electric fence during a polo match. Perhaps Kate's hubby should try to make her feel better by reminding her of his own embarrassing photo scandal.

So do you think that Kate's sunbathing pictures are actually scandalous, or do you think that it's silly to get outraged over skintimate snaps of royals and their relatives?
