Honeymoon Photos of Kate Middleton and Prince William Stir Controversy
You learn something new everyday.
I just recently learnt that there’s an agreement between members of the press and St. James Palace which forbids photographers from taking photos of the royal family in their private lives.
I guess it’s understandable because they give so much already, but they’re still public interest figures..:/
It seems that some photographer was able to snap a few photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton while the duo honeymooned privately in the Seychelles more than a year ago. The photos have now been published by Australia’s Woman’s Day and the Royal Family aren’t particularly pleased about it.
The photos which we got a hold of, feature William rocking a colorful pair of swim trousers while Kate donned a itty bitty bikini. Although a few UK newspapers knew the location of the couple’s honeymoon, they had agreed not to send photographers.
I think the bigger story here is not that the photos were published, but who took the photographs because clearly security wasn’t doing a very good job.
Fourteen months after Prince William and Kate Middleton'shoneymoon, photos of their romantic vacation have been made public. But not everyone is enjoying the memories, least of all the royal couple.
Private moments from the couple's jaunt in Seychelles'luxurious North Island last May are splashed throughout the pages of Woman's Day, an Australian tabloid, and spreading like wildfire on the internet.
For the palace, it's a symbol of broken trust, and a media betrayal that resonates in the royal family's tragic history.
But for one anonymous photographer staked out during their May escape, it could have meant a major payday.
"Any shot of them on their honeymoon was going to go for at least half a million but because Kate is in a bikini I would estimate that this is a million dollar shot," celebrity business journalist Jo Piazza, tells Yahoo! Shine.
