Yep. She's married to a man who is extremely wealthy - due to inherited money, not his own efforts - and she has no need to work at all. But if she does exercise her right to sit at home making booties, she's not going to earn herself any respect or do the future of the RF much good. It's not as though her performance to date has demonstrated she is a woman with a strong work ethic who is entitled to be cut a bit of slack now she is pregnant and suffering illness because of it. She is hardly a role model for modern teenage girls.

And yes, my opinion has changed a little since I posted about her work ethic a few days ago. This is primarily because I have just read another post summarising her (known) work history to date, and it is not good.

According to a few of the royal reporters, there will be a number of upcoming engagements for Kate and William. Hopefully we'll start getting announcements soon.

Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor: When Kate returns she will have a series of charity engagements. First is on Feb 19th.

But I am assured that, kicking off with the Duchess' first public appearance on Feb 19, we CAN expect to see Kate and William and Harry out and about throughout the end of February and March.

Apparently the Italian magazine 'Chi' will publish the photos of William and Kate in Mustique. SJP have issued a statement about it.

The magazine apparently has a photo of Kate, in her bikini with her baby bump showing, on its front cover.

I've not been able to find anything whatsoever on this for either Chi magazine or St. James palace. Where did you find this information?

It was just discussed on Sky News. 'Chi' is the same magazine in Italy who published the photos of Kate topless last year.

Correction - SJP's statement hasn't been released just yet, apparently, but will be imminently.

Statement says the decision to publish the photos is "a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy" and that they're "disappointed that photographs of TRH look likely to be published overseas".

I'm hoping that means they won't be published in the UK.

Ahhh thanks!! I remember Chi from the topless pictures and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they do publish the pictures. I wouldn't be surprised either if legal action is taken against Chi either.

Stick with TRF! Sometimes we find out things before they even go viral! Gotta love it!

I am never a fan of intrusive pictures, and I certainly had a degree of sympathy for Catherine when pictures of her from Frrance were published. However, I think it would be very naive of William and Catherine to complain should any pictures of her in a bikini were to now be published. They know from experience that there is a reasonable chance that a long lens will be on the lookout for Catherine, so if you really do not want to be pictured in a bikini, do not step out in one!

That said, I do not buy the argument of the pictures being in public interest - they are not, IMO! It is just an attempt by a paparazzi photographer to make some money.

I think the media have to get out of the habit of violating peoples privacy for a quick buck. I don't care if they are celebrities, royalty or regular people from down the street. We have to learn to respect each others right to privacy.

I agree, I certainly don't wait with baited breath for Catherine bikini photos, I have better things to do.

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
St James's Palace:"We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas."

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
The palace adds:" This is a clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.”

I agree, I wouldn't want my photos of vacations published. Why do people want to see boring pics of a couple on vacation anyway??? Good Lord, that's not news.

If the photos are going for $400,000 Australian, in just one media market, you can see the attraction paparazzi have in violating the privacy of individuals. There's a really, really big carrot and not enough stick.

I'm sure the royal couple and palace may be disappointed with the publishing of the pictures but I'm not sure if they will legally do much about it.

I think in order to have a totally private holiday anywhere, they're going to have to book a trip to the International Space Station via Virgin Galactic. Even then, they'd have to keep their guard up because they'd not be totally alone up there.

I think they know that. The mentioned the international press so this statement is like an indirect thank you to the British press for not publishing.
