Yesterday's blurry bottomless pics of Kate Middleton reignited the right to privacy vs. the right to see the Duchess of Cambridge's vagina debate, but Danish tabloid Se Og Hor says they're not responsible.

Se Og Hor editor Kim Henningsen claims he only published pictures of Kate in a 16-page spread on September 20, and that all reports of the tabloid publishing new bottomless photos are just rumors.

So where did the bottomless photos come from?

What's unclear is whether Se Og Hor published the more revealing pics over a week ago — and we somehow failed to notice — or if Henningsen is denying that the tabloid published the images at all. It seems unlikely that photos of Kate's nethers, however blurry, would have escaped our attention.

It's also possible that Se Og Hor is just trying to save face, although that goes against the devil-may-care attitude Henningsen displayed when last asked about the photos.

It's a set of unique photos from an A-class celebrity. We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them ... If the British royal family want to sue us, then it will happen then and we'll deal with it.

As for which publication ultimately bears responsibility for publishing the bottomless pics, we may have to wait to see who the royal lawyers sue. But how silly will we feel if Kate Middleton's exposed lower half was under our noses all this time?
