Despite the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge threatening to sue over the “grotesque and totally unjustifiable” invasion of privacy, Italian magazine Chi and the Irish Daily Star reportedly plan to run the snapshots.
Gossip magazine Chi is believed to be planning to print a 26-page photo special of the intimate snaps of the Duke and Duchess’s private sunshine break next week, according to the BBC.
The Irish Daily Star is also reportedly planning to publish the revealing photographs in its Irish edition.
Chi’s Editor, Alfonso Signorini said: “The fact that these are the future rulers of England makes the article more interesting and topical.
“This is a deserving topic because it shows in a completely natural way the daily life of a very famous, young and modern couple in love.”Irish Daily Star editor Michael O’Kane said the pictures did not feature in the UK editions of his newspaper group and he defended their publication in the Irish Republic.
“The Duchess would be no different to any other celeb pics we would get in, for example Rihanna or Lady Gaga,” he said.
“She’s not the future queen of Ireland so really the only place this is causing fury seems to be in the UK, and they are very very tasteful pictures.”
