8. Kate Middleton's topless photos. This incident wasn't scandalous because of her behavior, but because of the behavior exhibited by the paparazzi. There is a line you don't cross when it comes to a person's privacy and they definitely crossed it. Topless photos of the Duchess of Cambridge vacationing with her husband surfaced and were printed pretty much everywhere. As a sign of respect, the pictures never should have been shown anywhere after they were taken. The Royal Family was understandably unhappy with the incident. If someone wants to sunbathe topless, that's their business, not the business of the entire world. All of the photos were removed from most sources. No one thought negatively of Kate, just of the people who invaded her privacy.
