(Yahoo!) - Once again, Kate Middleton’s privacy has been violated while on vacation.

On Wednesday, Star magazine published bikini photos of the four-months-pregnant Duchess of Cambridge frolicking with Prince William on the beach in Mustique - the first glimpse of her bare bump!

The tabloid’s accompanying headline claims “Kate Shows Off Her Bump!” – but she clearly had no idea she was being secretly photographed.

And just like the previous time she and her husband were secretly snapped on the beach (when she was topless!), these new photos were obviously shot with a long lens, evidenced by how super grainy they are.

Regardless of their quality, the Palace is understandably upset.

In a statement, the royal family expressed that they are “disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas. This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."
