This Morning 'deeply regrets' showing Kate magazine

This Morning has apologised after accidentally showing an uncensored cover of the Italian magazine that pictured a pregnant Duchess of Cambridge in a bikini on holiday on the private Caribbean island of Mustique.

A statement was read out by host Eamonn Holmes later in the programme:

Earlier during today's news review we were discussing photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a beach in Mustique published in an Italian magazine.

Unfortunately we accidentally showed an unblurred image of the magazine cover, which briefly showed the photographs.

This was a deeply regrettable error and we are very sorry.

We apologise unreservedly to the Duke and the Duchess.
