The paparazzo’s name has been handed over to French authorities who are investigating the incident, it emerged last night.
A source close to the case was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “A name has been offered… The photographer is expected to be held for question[ing]… Imminently.”
French public prosecutor Marie-Christine Daubigney said: “This new information regarding the photographer will be passed on to investigating magistrates.”
Meanwhile, a British tabloid has quoted a royal source as saying: “William and Kate are determined to bring the person who took those photos to justice and they’re pushing hard for a custodial sentence. They want to make an example of this person.”
If found guilty, the photographer could be jailed for up to a year and fined £36,000 for breach of privacy.
Meanwhile, it has since been suggested that the paparazzo who took the photographs was an Englishman, thought to live in the south of France.
