The editor of the Italian magazine Chi, which is the second publication to publish pictures of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, has defended his decision.
Alfonso Signorini told the BBC:
The photographs, which can in no way be considered scandalous, were bought from an international photo agency, do not harm the image of the protagonists and the reaction of the media seems to me wholly over the top.
Moreover, the photographs can hardly be considered an invasion of privacy when the subjects are public figures in a public place, in the open air; specifically on a beach surrounded by other bathers.
