GOOD LORD! Will these 2 come home and do something quick so this rant about the holiday can be forgotten?
What's Lupo been up to?

That's a good point we haven't seen the pooch in a while. We will next see Catherine, at least, in 10 days time.

Have they Lupo castrated or will he be one Day father of a new flock of royal dogs?

Don't think they're going to tell us that.

Don't encourage the trolls, Xenia! Next thing we know there'll be articles on the DM, quickly followed by the usual suspects here, suggesting that Lupo is neglected and/or only trotted out for some good PR.

Mustique is probably the best place the Cambridges can go for a holiday. It's a private island and photographers are not allowed to come ashore; which means the very few photos we've seen of them while in Mustique are so blurry that no paper would run them. We tend to see photos only when they leave the island to get their plane home.

Think about it - they got no privacy in a large private estate in France, none on their honeymoon in the Seychelles, none on their holiday in Ibiza several years ago. Unless they hole themselves up at Balmoral or Sandringham, they can't get any break from the press. Other royals can go on holiday in the US or Asia etc. and not be recognised. Will and Kate don't have that luxury.

perhaps holing up in Sandringham or Balmoral is the onnly answer. I feel so sorry for these two.

So the photos are apparently legit though they were first thought to be from years ago. Her bump is apparently clearly visible in the shots
Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor The Sunday People has chosen not to view the pictures and, like the rest of the British media, will not publish them.

Baby bump Kate hols pics are likely to spark a bidding war in the US, Australia and Europe - but unlikely to be published in the UK.
Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor Other pics taken on Will & Kate Mustique holiday are understood to feature her sister Pippa in a bikini.

The new pictures show Kate, 31, walking in the surf with her husband Prince William on hols in Mustique.

Well I suppose we have well and truly worn into the ground the topic of the Mustique holiday.

Talk about a pregnant pause.

So do I. Regardless of my opinion of the trip itself, it's still an invasion of privacy at a time and in a place where they had reasonable expectations of privacy.
I am glad the UK media at least won't be publishing the pictures.

For the longest time I've thought that if they disappeared for a while then perhaps media furor would die down but it's obvious that won't be happening. So now I'm thinking that it may be they have to go the other direction. So much over-saturation that everyone gets sick and tired of them and then finally leaves them alone. I'm talking Kardashian levels of always being around. (I don't know what the European equivalent is of the idiot Kardashians but needless to say if I never see any of that family again I will not get misty-eyed.) Bless them, they just can't win for losing.

I actually don't think that would work in their case either. Too much interest. They really just have to cope as best they can, and try to be as private as possible. Their time in Anglesy is relatively private which is excellent for them, and after that, they'll have to rely on time at remote country retreats.

That's a good theory, COESpiral, over-saturation so everyone won't even give them a second glance! If you can't fight them, join them. But I think Kate-mania has entrenched itself too deeply among the public now for this tactic to be successful.

Yup, it would just feed it. Honestly, that's a lesson that's been learned from the past- that the assumption it would eventually die down was a false one.

I think that's probably directly influenced the current strategy of very carefully controlling their media appearances as much as possible.

Yeah, I know. I just want there to be some kind of sensible middle ground so they won't have to spend their lives always looking over their shoulder. It's one thing to be royal and all the responsibilities and expectations associated with that but no one can live under a microscope 24/7. Everyone's got to have space to de-stress or your mental health will deteriorate.

I am so sorry they got screwed by the media again. This really will never end, and I'm ashamed my country will probably be one of the ones with these pix on their mag covers.
As for privacy, it appears there are never any pix of them in Anglessey? Is that right? If so instead of leaving home, they should just hang out there.

I'd be surprised if they didn't think this could happen.

Most likely they knew this would happen. They don't like it but I do think they know some pictures could get out.
