Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly been left fuming, after an Australian magazine published private pictures of their honeymoon.
It's thought monthly title Woman's Day made the controversial decision to publish the 'world exclusive' photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, taken on the beach during their private honeymoon in the Seychelles last May.
It's not yet known how the publication obtained the pictures, reported to show Prince William in colourful board shorts and Kate Middleton in a black bikini.
Today a St. James’ Palace spokesperson told news site Celebuzz: 'The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s honeymoon was obviously a private occasion, and we would ask people to respect their privacy.'
Prince William and Kate Middleton jetted off for some R&R at the exclusive Seychelles North Island destination in May last year, with rumours suggesting that not even Kate knew where William was whisking her away to, and that he planned the entire trip as a surprise.
On their return, the relaxed newlyweds thanked Seychelles officials for 'a memorable and special 10 days,' revealing they 'thoroughly enjoyed their time together' on the island.
It's thought several newspapers knew the fiercely guarded secret location of William and Kate's honeymoon before they jetted off, but chose to not to send photographers after the royal couple's requests for privacy.
