Kate Middleton‘s bikini pictures have been published by an Italian magazine, the palace learned last night.
The Duchess Of Cambridge was photographed strolling along the beach in Mustique wearing a blue bikini and showing off a small baby bump when she was snapped by a long lens. She was with Prince William at the time.
St James’ Palace said in a statement: “We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas.
“This is a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.”
A cover of Chi magazine has now emerged online with the headline “Kate & William in Mustique: The belly grows”.
The same magazine published 26 pages of intimate topless pictures of the Duchess while she was on holiday in a private French villa last year, despite the royal family taking legal action against Closer magazine in France for using the same images.
She’ll make her first public appearance with her baby bump at a charity event next Tuesday. RM
