An Italian gossip magazine called ‘Chi’ says it will be publishing new photos of the Duchess Of Cambridge taken in Mustique last week which feature the Duchess in a bikini and allegedly show her baby bump. This news comes as St James’s Palace condemn the Italian magazine’s choice to publish these photos.
After last year’s media scandal over pictures of the Duchess sunbathing topless were published by French ‘Closer’ magazine, resulting in legal action taken by the Duchess and Prince William.
Last week, news was reported about alleged new photos taken which were dismissed by some as conjecture, now it seems the photos do exist and will be published, much to the dismay of St James’s Palace.
A St James’s Palace spokesman said: “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.”
What will happen with regards to any legal action remains to be seen. This is the second breach of privacy the Duchess Of Cambridge has suffered in the last 6 months.
Interestingly, it is always overseas magazines and news sources which choose to publish these privacy-breaching photographs. British news sources are beginning to establish a greater respect for privacy regarding the British Royal Family which is a good sign.
Just like with the photos last year, once again this is a blatant invasion of privacy which was completely unwarranted and quite probably illegal.
We wish to repeat that we will not be publishing or harbouring the images in any way.
