Even on a secluded island, Duchess Kate can't keep the paparazzi's prying eyes away.

The pregnant royal was photographed revealing her baby bump on the beach in a bikini while on vacation with husband Prince William, and Italian tabloid Chi has reportedly outraged the couple by publishing the photo on its cover.

"We are disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas," St. James Palace said. "This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."

The controversial cover goes on sale on Feb. 13, according to UsMagazine.com, but the photo had already begun to circulate on Tuesday, showing the Duchess in a blue two-piece walking in the waves with husband Prince William.

Chi magazine famously angered the royals last fall as well when it published a 26-page spread of photos of the Duchess caught sunbathing topless. The royals took legal action over the photos, which were also published in a series of other European tabloids.
