Italian magazine Chi to publish Kate Middleton bikini photos

Royal officials in Britain have expressed disappointment that paparazzi shots of Prince William and his wife on a beach holiday in the Caribbean may be published by an Italian magazine.
St. James's Palace said Tuesday that publishing the photos would be a "clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."
The photos reportedly show the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge — the former Kate Middleton — wearing a bikini and strolling on a beach with William on the island of Mustique.
The Italian gossip magazine Chi was reportedly planning to publish the pictures.
Last year, William and Kate went to court over a French gossip magazine's publication of topless photos of the duchess while the couple was on a holiday in the south of France.
