Italian magazine publishes photos showing  Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge while on holiday in Mustique 

The Duke of Cambridge and his pregnant duchess Kate only wanted to take a break from the husle and bustle of royal life. So off the seemingly honey-mooning couple and took the flight (withe the Middletons) to Mustique, the fabled Caribbean island, once the favorite destination of the Queen's late sister, Princess Margaret. But little do we know--and little do the royal couple know that while strolling on the shoreline, bikini-clad Kate (with the sign of baby bump apparent), was already photographed by a prying lense.

Now, royal fury is on "after Italian and Australian magazines published these photos, while more publications around the around are lined up to do the same," reports Mail online.

St. James's Palace has officially released a statement saying that the act was "a clear breach of privacy, calling the pictures "violating."

Mail online further reports that foreign publishers obtained the rights to publish the images for a whooping  £100,000.

Fiona Connolly, editor of the Australian magazine, Woman's Day, said that the royal couple are "not protected species" outside Britain. However, Mustique is a private island and papparazi is banned there. Nevertheless, Connolly claimed that the images were taken by a foreigner.

A Day in the Life of The Queen: How Queen Elizabeth II Spends Her Day

Queen Elizabeth II is a stickler for order, and so routine is a part of Her Majesty’s day-to-day life. She rises at around 8.30 am and would be greeted by a piper who plays at 9am on the terrace beneath her apartment at Buckingham Palace. When longtime attendant and confidante Margaret MacDonald was still in service, Don Coolican noted that  Bobo, as The Queen affectionately called MacDonald, would awaken her, “bringing in a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits handed over by the footman.” The Queen’s corgis are the first creatures to grace The Queen , who would also beg to be given biscuits, Coolican writes.

King Edward VIII’s Financial Settlement: How Much Money Did He Get After The Abdication?

King Edward VIII leaped into financial uncertainty the moment he signed the Instrument of Abdication on December 10, 1936. That same day, Edward, now known as Duke of Windsor, entered into an agreement with his younger brother and successor, King George VI, that secured him £25,000 annually for the rest of his life. However, the King later renounced this agreement and instead offered him a smaller amount which would cease upon the King's death.
