Photos of Kate Middleton reveal her four-month baby bump which was published by ‘Star’ magazine. The pics were taken by a fellow vacationer not the paparazzi.
Pregnant Kate dons a blue bikini proudly revealing her baby bump and seems to be carefree happily frolicking on a public beach in clear view of other relaxed vacationers. It’s not surprising that someone snapped some photos and realizing the value of those pics, decided to sell them.
The Royal family was not happy about it.
“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,” a spokeswoman from St. James Palace said in an official statement on Tuesday, when news of the photographs hit the Internet.
The press frenzy seems to be getting more aggressive as Kate’s pregnancy grows. And according to Shine from Yahoo, for the right to publish the first glimpse of Kate’s “baby bump,” publishers all over the world are paying upwards of $500,000.
