More magazines have expressed plans to publish photographs of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge in a bikini.

Editor of Woman's Day Fiona Connolly told Australia's Channel Nine: "This is not a hard decision about these photos. Kate's on a public beach, there are other holidaymakers there and she looks fabulous.

"Look, I think the British are very sensitive about this. As Australians, we see this every day.

"We see pregnant women in bikinis on the beach - and a public one at that - so we are a lot less sensitive here in Australia."

Magazines in France, Germany and the US are also believed to have bought the photographs.

According to the Daily Mail, the sale of the images has raised over £100,000.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Earlier today (February 13), This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes apologised after the ITV show accidentally flashed an uncensored image of the Chi front cover during the programme.

Chi previously published topless photos of the Duchess while at a private villa in France. These images were first printed in French Closer magazine.

Prince William later called for the photographer responsible to be jailed.
