New photos of Kate Middleton pregnant and in a bikini were snapped Saturday as she vacations on the ultra-private island of Mustique. The bikini-clad Duchess of Cambridge and her husband, Prince William, were wading in the waters off the shore of the Caribbean Island when a photographer reportedly snapped their picture.
Kate Middleton's baby bump, which has yet to make its public debut, is said to be prominent in the still-unpublished photos. According to a Feb. 10 report, a Royal aide described as "exasperated" over the invasion of privacy in a place that bans paparazzi, tells the Sunday People: “This is unfortunate. They get absolutely no privacy whatsoever.”
Kate Middleton is believed to be about 19 or 20 weeks pregnant. The vacation with the Duke of Cambridge and the Middleton family, including Pippa, is being described as a "babymoon." Following the release of topless pictures of Kate taken while vacationing at a private chateau in France in September, the couple opted to vacation in Mustique. The private island is popular with celebrities because it bans photographers.
It's unclear if the paparazzi who took the new bikini pictures of the pregnant Duchess was actually on the island when the photos were snapped. While it's widely believed the British press will stay far away from the bikini photos of Kate Middleton's baby bump, it's estimated they could pull in nearly $400,000 elsewhere around the world.
