An Italian gossip magazine has printed pictures of the world's favorite princess in a bikini, while she is pregnant -- and has now defended the decision. The pictures, taken while Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was on holiday with her husband Prince William, have been described by St. James' Palace as a "breach of the couple's right to privacy."
According to the BBC, the editor of the magazine Chi, Alfonso Signorini, has said that the images are not a breach of privacy, and are simply "photos of a young couple in love".
He also says that "they are images of such unexceptional normality that there is only limited mention of them on the cover of the magazine," and that they were "bought from an international photo agency," and "do not harm the image of the protagonists."
He says that "the reaction of the media seems to me wholly over the top," and claims that "the Italian press is not a party to the gentlemen's agreement between the British press and Buckingham Palace." Do you think that the magazine went too far?
