Chi magazine, the Italian publication which printed topless photos of Kate Middleton vacationing in France last fall — has now decided to run pictures of the pregnant Duchess frolicking on the beach in a bikini while on private holiday in the Caribbean last week.

The photos, taken with a long lens, reportedly feature Middleton in a blue bikini  walking arm-in-arm on the beach with Prince William, also in his swimwear.

"We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas," a spokesman for the couple at St. James's Palace tells People magazine. "This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."

The photos are also expected to be printed in a yet to be named  U.S. tabloid magazine.

It’s not yet known whether St. James’s Palace will take legal action against the publication.
