Kate Middleton is about to become show Australia how sexy she looks in a bikini whilst pregnant…
Eyes have now turned towards Australia’s Fiona Connolly, editor of Australia‘s Woman’s Day who has today publicly gone on to defend her decision to soon run pictures of Kate Middleton sauntering on the private Caribbean island of Mustique in a bikini with her pregnancy bump showing.
“It wasn’t a hard decision to run these photos,” she said. “She is on a public beach and she was mingling with holiday makers. There are other holiday makers in the photos. It’s a very different situation to the nude photos, there is no photographer hiding in the bushes and she is not inside a private villa.”
“In this instance they are a beautiful set of photos,” Connolly told Australian Associated Press.
She said the photos show the Duchess looking happy and much recovered from the extreme morning sickness she experienced earlier in her pregnancy.
Connolly, goes on to reveal at present there has been “furious” bidding between her competitors for the photos in Australia, and while the British press may hold off on publishing the images, they would be picked up around the world.
“The British have a great deal more sensitivity to royals than we do here in Oz,” she said.
Connolly said they were different to the paparazzi pictures of Kate sunbathing in bikini bottoms on the balcony of a chateau in the South of France, publishedby French magazine Closer last year and over which Britain’s royal family has launched legal action.
She added that the “gentleman’s agreement” between the British press and the royals had no bearing on what she did.
The British media continued being ostentatiously outraged about the pictures, blurring them and blacking them out. A morning TV show got into trouble, though, when it accidentally forgot to do these things and showed the images for a couple of seconds.
Her decision to show the images follow Italian magazine Chi’s lead who acquired the images after a fellow holiday maker came across Kate Middleton on the island and decided to reach out to the journal to see if it would be interested in running the images. And they’re not coming cheap:
