Kate Middleton just can’t seem to catch a break when she goes on vacation. Back in September, topless photos of the Duchess were published in multiple European tabloids after she was snapped by a paparazzi while holidaying in Provence, and now it has been revealed that Italian gossip rag Chi (one of the more unapologetic perpetrators the first time around), has published photos taken of a four-months-pregnant Kate and husband Prince William on vacation in Mustique.
According to the Daily Mirror, St. James’ Palace has issued the following 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.
The cover of the tabloid shows Middleton walking in the ocean with a hint of a baby bump, and a separate shot of William with an arm around her shoulder, accompanied by the coverline “La Pancia Cresce”, which translates to “Your belly grows.” Charming.
