Woman's Day editor Fiona Connolly reportedly said she had no qualms publishing the photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge. She told news.com.au:
It wasn’t a hard decision to run these photos. She is on a public beach and she was mingling with holiday makers. There are other holiday makers in the photos. It’s a very different situation to the nude photos, there is no photographer hiding in the bushes and she is not inside a private villa.
