Kate Middleton Shouldn't Be Upset About Her Pregnant Bikini Pics Going Public

Posted: Updated:

Kate Middleton has no reason to be dismayed. She looks beautiful displaying her bump and she and Prince William are inspiring role models.

Kate Middleton -- I'm sure it was a shock to find out that multiple magazines would be publishing photos of you pregnant in a blue bikini. But on the other hand, you and Prince William were strolling happily on a public beach on the Caribbean island of Mustique and were in plain view of plenty holidayers, many of whom were carrying cell phones and cameras because ... well, they were on vacation.

It's not surprising that someone snapped some photos and realizing the value of those pics, decided to sell them.

Kate Middleton: Be Proud Of These Baby Bump Pictures!

On one hand, it must be annoying because you feel like you can't just relax and be yourself with your husband on vacation.

On the other hand, you know that you are one of the most photographed women in the world and there are probably at least a billion people who are avidly interested in your pregnancy because they like and admire you.

Of course they are intensely interested in seeing your bump -- it's been a very long time since there has been an heir to the British throne, especially one who is HAPPILY married to a lovely, beautiful woman.

The photos that were snapped are harmless. You aren't topless -- YES, that was embarrassing and an invasion of privacy -- and they only showcase why you and Prince William are such great role models.

The pics, which show you frolicking in the ocean together and walking with your arms sweetly around each other, made it very clear to the world that you two are deeply in love with each other and are still ecstatic to be in each other's company, a year and a half after your fairytale wedding.

How many couples anywhere can say that? Especially celebrity couples.

Prince William & Kate Middleton: The Most PDAish Royal Couple In History

Even more -- how many heirs to the British throne have EVER been happily married? Most royal marriages were arranged and were not love matches. Even William's father, Prince Charles, and his beloved late mother, Princess Diana, were engineered into an arranged and extremely miserable marriage, which had tragic results.

So the fact that you two are obviously in love and happy to be together and extremely excited about your pregnancy makes you a modern role model couple.

You've also both broken the traditional "stiff upper lip," unemotional mold of British Royals. You publicly kiss and indulge in other PDA, even when on Royal tours to other countries on Royal business.

In this case, an eyewitness on the Mustique beach told Star magazine that William actually got down on his knees and kissed your baby bump on the beach -- AWW!

No one in a million years could ever have imagined William's grandfather Philip EVER doing that , even in private with his wife, Queen Elizabeth!

Kate Is A Role Model To All Pregnant Women

Secondly Kate -- you're a role model because you're showing that a pregnant woman's body is perfectly beautiful.

You look fit, toned and healthy. Thank goodness you've clearly recovered from the acute morning sickness you were suffering from in December 2012.

You are comfortable with your body and proud to display your bare bump in public and of course in front of your husband. Not all women feel that good about themselves when they are pregnant... but they should.

For all those reasons Kate -- you really shouldn't be bothered at all that your pregnant bikini photos have been published and will be seen by hundreds of millions of fans.

You have nothing to be embarrassed about and only lots to be proud of!
