Duchess of Cambridge bikini photos to be published by Italian magazine

By
St James's Palace has condemned an Italian magazine's plans to publish new holiday photos of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Italian publication Chi is expected to print photos of Kate Middleton wearing a bikini while on holiday with Prince William on the Caribbean island Mustique.

Chi previously sparked outrage after publishing topless photos of the Duchess while at a private villa in France, despite warnings from the Palace.

The new photos show a visibly pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wearing a bikini. Prince William and the Duchess's sister Pippa Middleton are also among the photos due to be published.

The 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."

The French Closer magazine was the first to publish the controversial topless photos last September, which were then re-used by several publications around the world, including Chi.

Prince William later called for the photographer responsible to be jailed, which may be possible under France's strict privacy laws.
