Bound for Italy
Chi, owned by the same company that publishes French mag Closer (the first to publish the pics), will run a 26-page spread Monday. The headline -- "The Queen is Nude."
Editor Alfonso Signorni says he doesn't fear legal action -- Closer has already been sued -- because the photos are now part of public domain, adding, "I don't see anything morbid or damaging in them. Chi pays attention to respecting people's dignity. I don't think they hurt Kate's image."
Prince William's office is weighing "all appropriate responses" to Chi's plans to publish the pics.
