The Duchess Of Cambridge has reportedly been photographed in a bikini with her baby bump showing while on holiday in the Caribbean.
The new photos are said to show a pregnant Duchess walking in the water with Prince William on the beach island of Mustique. According to the Sunday People, the photos, which they claimed they decided not to view, also show Catherine's sister, Pippa, in a bikini.
The reports of new photos come in the wake of last September's royal photo scandal in which paparazzi shots which showed the 31-year-old Duchess sunbathing topless in the south of France were published. While British media will not publish the controversial pictures, it is believed they could spark a bidding war in other parts of the world to purchase them.
Currently sunning themselves on the paradise island of Mustique, the Duke & Duchess Of Cambridge are said to be staying in a luxury $35,000 villa complete with an infinity pool, games room and stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, The Sun reports.
The island – which was popular with William's late great aunt, Princess Margaret, and is still hopping today with such celebrities as Mick Jagger – is a regular family vacation destination for the Duchess, whose parents, Carole and Mike, are said to be staying in a villa nearby.
“The Duke and Duchess have joined the Middletons for a winter break," a source told the U.K. paper. Both William and Catherine were hoping her condition would not stop her from making the eight-hour flight to Barbados and the connection to Mustique."
Prince William and Catherine are expecting their first baby in July.
