Kate Middleton and Prince William are said to be absolutely furious after snaps of them on honeymoon last year were published by a magazine.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jetted off for a private break to a paradise island on the Seychelles, a few days after their lavish Westminster Abbey wedding in April.
It was a chance for the couple to escape the media glare which constantly surrounds them, to spend 10 days of alone time together as man and wife, in total seclusion.
Most press organisations agreed to refrain from photographing the couple during this private time.
But they are said to have been left disappointed – as well as extremely angry – that a magazine has now chosen to publish photographs of them during their special break.
The latest issue of Australian magazine Woman’s Day features a ‘world exclusive’ snap of the couple walking along the beach hand-in-hand, with a slim Kate dressed in a black bandeau bikini and Wills in colourful shorts on the front page. The text ‘Wills and Kate: Our island paradise’ alongside the caption ‘Their romantic getaway revealed’ sits beside the photo.
Details of Kate and William’s honeymoon were kept extremely secret, with even the Duchess said to be unsure of where her new husband was whisking her away to.
The couple are believed to have stayed at North Island, one of 115 luxurious islands in the Seychelles, where they spent 10 days together.
On their return, the newlyweds thanked the Seychelles Government for making their trip so special.
Although Clarence House made it quite clear details of the Royals’ honeymoon would “remain private”, a statement was issued which read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have returned to the United Kingdom from their honeymoon in the Seychelles.
“The couple thoroughly enjoyed their time together and they are grateful to the Seychelles government for their assistance in making the honeymoon such a memorable and special 10 days."
Today, following the publication of the honeymoon photograph, 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.”
