Kate Middleton: Star Magazine pregnant bikini pictures
OHMYGOSSIP — Star magazine is the latest news outlet to publish sexy, bikini pictures of a pregnant Kate Middleton. The snaps, which have already been published by Italian magazine CHI and Australia’s Woman’s Day, reveals Kate’s four-month baby bump in a five-page spread.
Kate, walking on the beech on the Caribbean Island of Mustique looks gorgeous in a blue bikini, which clearly reveals her four-month baby bump.
Kate and William — who are expecting their first child together — are staying in a $30,000 a week villa with her parents Michael and Carole Middleton.
“Kate really wanted to get away one last time before the baby is born,” a source tells Star.
Despite the photos being taken by a vacationer, St. James’s Palace still calls them a “breach of privacy” — and UK publications are banned from releasing the photos.
“We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas,” said a St James’ Palace spokesman.
“This is a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.” The statement was released on Feb. 12 after they learned Chi magazine had planned to publish the photos.
Meanwhile, Royal watcher Tom Sykkes wrote in The Daily Beast that the pictures will damage Mustique’s repulation as an uber-private resort.
“The fact that a photographer has been able to get close enough to take these new pictures will be a huge blow for privately owned Mustique, which has thrived on its reputation as a papparazzi-free enclave. Mustique is as famous for its white-sand beaches as it is for the omertà that ensures that very little celebrity tittle-tattle ever makes it off the island. The Mustique Company boasts that it is ‘dedicated to protecting the island’s privacy.’”
