Kate Middleton Baby Bump: Chi Magazine Publishes Pics Of Pregnant Duchess In A Bikini

Kate Middleton's baby bump is making headlines around the world this morning, thanks to Chi magazine.

The tabloid paper from Italy, which published pictures of a topless Duchess of Cambridge last September, has gotten their hands on paparazzi shots of Kate in a bikini while on her babymoon in Mustique with Prince William. The images clearly show the Royal baby bump -- something the soon-to-be mom has been actively trying to keep out of the public eye.

Early this morning, St. James Palace released a memo to media saying they're disappointed with this new breach of the couple's privacy.

"We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published... This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."

The magazine, which the BBC reports is owned by Silvio Berlusconi, has put the bikini pictures of Kate on the cover of their latest issue. You can check out the images for yourself over at The Daily Beast or Mondadori.com.

There are also reports, the Australian magazine Women's Day will publish the photos later this week.
