New photos of the Duchess of Cambridge reveal her four-month baby bump in a five-page spread published by ‘Star’ magazine on Feb. 13. The pics, which display the couple’s happy babymoon, were taken by a fellow vacationer — not the paparazzi.
Pregnant Kate Middleton looks gorgeous in a blue bikini, which clearly reveals her four-month baby bump in photos published by Star magazine. On their Caribbean babymoon, the royal couple displays adorable PDA as they happily frolicked on a public beach in Mustique, in clear view of other relaxed vacationers.
The photos in America’s Star come the same day as Italian gossip magazine Chi and Australian magazine Woman’s Day both published photos of a bikini-clad Kate with her baby bump exposed. Chi magazine editor Alfonso Signorini explained to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why he decided to run the images in his publication.
“The article features photos of a young couple in love as they happily walk along the shore,” he says. “They are images of such unexceptional normality that there is only limited mention of them on the cover of the magazine.”
“Moreover, the photographs can hardly be considered an invasion of privacy when the subjects are public figures in a public place, in the open air; specifically on a beach surrounded by other bathers,” he adds.
Kate Middleton & Prince William’s PDA-Packed Babymoon
In the five-page photo spread in Star, the couple looks so in love as they stroll on the beach together with William’s arm lovingly around his wife. They are seen frolicking in the waves, and look more in love than ever.
In a tender candid moment, showed some precious PDA to his pregnant wife.
“William joined Kate for an early morning swim; they were touching and kissing in the waves. When they came out of the water, he got down on his knees in front of Kate and kissed her baby bump,” an onlooker tells Star magazine.
“He then hugged her and held her as they watched the sunrise together. You could tell it was a magical moment for them,” the source added.
Happy Babymoon After Morning Sickness
It’s so refreshing to see the royal couple smiling and enjoying their vacation together just two months after Kate was hospitalized for severe morning sickness, in which she was plagued by 24/7 morning sickness and left her on bedrest.
The couple is staying on the uber-private island of Mustique, which is located off the island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, in a $30,000 a week villa with her parents Michael and Carole Middleton.
“Kate really wanted to get away one last time before the baby is born,” a source tells Star.
The couple looks totally relaxed and at ease, and the always-polished Duchess even let her hair down in natural, beach waves!
St. James Palace Speaks Out About Vacation Photos
Despite the photos being taken by a vacationer, St. James’s Palace still calls them a “breach of privacy” — and UK publications are banned from releasing the photos.
“We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas,” a St James’ Palace spokesman tells HollywoodLife.com. “This is a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.” The statement was released on Feb. 12 after they learned Chi magazine had planned to publish the photos.
