Kate Middleton showed off her small baby bump in a bikini during a recent vacation in Mustique, a small private island, and a pic of it got snapped by a paparazzo.
The photos of the royal bump were first published in CHI magazine, the publication that also published photos of Kate topless, and the monarchy called these latest photos “a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.”
If you’re wondering why Kate was out and about in a bikini if she didn’t want to be snapped; they probably thought that they were safe on Mustique in their $25,000-a-week villa because the entire island had been locked down for their visit.
“Royal watcher” Tom Sykkes wrote in The Daily Beast:
“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.’”
