Welcome to the newest scandal starring Kate Middleton.

The royal house is up in arms after Italian magazine Chi chose to publish new images of a pregnant Kate Middleton on its covers. The revealing image shows the royal donning a bikini as she vacationed on the exclusive  Caribbean island of Mustique.

Like the last scandal which also saw Kate Middleton appearing on the tabloid’s front cover the new images have once again antagonized the house of Windsor.

Offered a royal spokesperson: ‘We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas.’

Tells the UK’s dailymail: The pictures show the 31-year-old Duchess strolling on the private beach with William. In one shot he is seen with an arm protectively around her back. Both look relaxed and Catherine is seen smiling happily.

It is understood that the magazine has also run pictures of Kate’s sister Pippa who is on holiday with the Royal couple and the rest of the Middleton family including her parents Carole and Michael.

What makes the pictures particularly beguiling is the fact that the island which is private forbids paparazzi from taking pictures of its guests, raising questions as to who took the new images?

In fact the island’s strict privacy laws have made it a favorite getaway destination for celebrities who eschew constant media attention and simply want to unwind without the presence of glaring eyes.

The latest scandal follows off the back of an incident late last year which saw two Australian dj’s Mel Grieg and Michael Christian from Sydney radio outlet 2Day FM prank call the hospital where Kate Middleton was staying after she became ill as a result of her pregnancy.

At the time King Edward VII hospital nurse, Jacintha Saldanha who took the prank call ended her life in suicide apparently in the throes of humiliation of being caught out by the dj’s. Despite threats of repercussion the dj’s after world wide condemnation and being pulled off the airwaves by their owners have once again resumed broadcasting. This plus the light repercussion suffered by Chi’s owners, Italian giant Mondadori as owned by flamboyant and controversial Silivio Berlusconi with respect to the last batch of topless images of Kate Middleton is thought to have once again underscored the media’s dogged pursuit of the royals even in their most private sensitive moments. A topic which to date has led to widespread contemplation and debate as to whether the media is crossing ethical lines of privacy of its celebrated subjects.

The recent pictures appear to have been taken from a boat offshore.
