In today's edition of women being pitted against one another: A team of French lawyers is arguing that because Meghan Markle once posed for "provocative" photos, it's a-okay for paparazzi to secretly photograph Kate Middleton sunbathing topless,The Telegraph reports.

Some background: Back in 2013, Meghan Markle posed for a consensual shoot with Men's Health--the key word here is "consensual"--and, in a video called "Grilling Never Looked So Hot," the then-actress took off some items of clothing. What does this have to do with the crass invasion of privacy that was Kate Middleton being photographed topless, without her consent, on a private estate? Well, according to The Telegraph, lawyers for the French magazine who were sued for publishing topless photos of Kate will argue that, actually, there's precedent for members of the royal family posing for "revealing" shoots.

Why Meghan Markle copies Kate Middleton 's body language revealed by expert. MEGHAN MARKLE and KATE MIDDLETON attended the Commonwealth Day event at Westminster Abbey yesterday. Is the Suits actress purposefully copying the Duchess of Cambridge?

Here's the Men's Health video in question.

I shouldn't have to point out that there's a critical and obvious distinction between an actress taking part in a sultry shoot and a public figure being secretly filmed, half-naked, in a private location. The 2012 photographs were a painful invasion of Kate's privacy, and led to the Palace releasing its most angry statement in recent history.

"Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner. The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so. Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them."

The mention of Diana here is significant. Diana, of course, died in a car accident during a frenzied chase by the paparazzi (also in France).

Meghan Markle 's engagement dress is very different than Kate Middleton 's — here's how they compare. When compared to what Kate Middleton wore for her engagement photo shoot with Prince William in 2010, Markle 's sheer outfit looks more revealing.

Thus far, the courts have agreed with the royal family and the French magazine that published the photos has been ordered to pay £92,000 of damages to Kate Middleton. This effort to pit Kate against Meghan is part of a legal appeal against the figure, with the magazine arguing that its punishment is "hypocritical." Because, you know, an actress who fell in love with Prince Harry many years later once appeared in a slightly suggestive shoot. Right.
