The editor of Australian magazine Woman's Day has said St James's Palace's condemnation of the decision to publish pregnant bikini shots of the Duchess of Cambridge has backfired because "twice as many people will now want to see them".
Speaking to Australia's Channel Nine network, Fiona Connolly refused to say how much she paid to win a three-magazine bidding war for the 39 images which form the latest set of controversial Kate holiday snaps.
But she rejected issues of privacy, saying the royals had been holidaying on a public island.
