Prince William and Kate Middleton asked the media to respect their privacy last year during their honeymoon in the Seychelles but an Australian magazine published photos today of the royal couple enjoying their time alone and sources say Kate and William feel betrayed and furious.
The cover picture on Women’s Day magazine shows Will and Kate walking hand-in-hand down the beach in their trunks and bikini. It seems harmless enough but Kate’s terribly thin figure will have people talking for months. She’s so tall and skinny. It looks weird, like not normal. I posted other photos of Will and Kate vacationing in Ibiza in 2006. She’s gorgeous and skinny in those pics, but it’s so different, don’t you think? She looks healthy in her white bikini, not so much in the black.
The pictures looked to be taken with a super long-lensed camera by a paparazzi who had to have been tipped off to the location. The Daily Beast reports some UK tabloids had inside knowledge of where the honeymoon was taking place and blatantly disregarded the couple’s wishes to have the time to themselves. No one knows why it took so long for the pictures to surface although the Daily Beast writes, “It is possible whoever secretly commissioned the photos then had second thoughts about alienating the Palace, and the photographer was then forced to wait out an exclusivity period before selling them. Contract intricacies may also explain why they have turned up in the Australian market rather than much bigger UK or US territories.”
There’s no telling how Kate and Will will react over the invasion of privacy. They are bound to be jaded by this experience and William’s reticence to put his life out there might be increased because of it. But I couldn’t help myself. I had to check them out! I expect if you’re reading this, like me, you have a serious addiction to the royal couple and just had to see what Kate Middleton’s bikini body looked like. What do you think of the magazine publishing the pics? Is Kate too skinny? Do you think the royal family is more worried over the invasion of privacy or the way Kate looked in the pictures?
