The palace needs to get a grip
Good lord, we’ve upset Buckingham Palace again.
Well not “we” but Italian tabloid magazine, “Chi” - whose photographers have managed to snap some photos of the Duchess of Cambridge - sporting a bright blue bikini and a visible baby bump, on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
In what can only be described as a massive overreaction, a spokesperson from St James Palace issued this statement:
“We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas.”
After all the drama surrounding the Duchess’ early pregnancy, you’d think everyone concerned would be happier just to lay low.
In fact, if the palace really wanted to make a statement about them, they should have just ignored the photos altogether. Talking about how disappointed they are, will only make people want to see them more.
Not that there is anything wrong with that. We all know the Duchess is pregnant now, so what’s the harm in seeing her healthy, happy and relaxed?
And relaxed they’re bound to be. According to the magazine the royal couple are lapping it up in Mustique on a “babymoon”; staying in a villa, with the Middleton family said to cost around $29, 000 a week.
Sounds tough doesn’t it?
