Royal officials in Britain have expressed disappointment that paparazzi shots of Prince William and his wife on a beach holiday in the Caribbean may be published by an Italian magazine. St. James’s Palace said Tuesday that publishing the photos would be a ‘‘clear breach of the couple’s right to privacy.’’ The photos reportedly show the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge — the former Kate Middleton — wearing a bikini and strolling on a beach with William on the island of Mustique. The Italian gossip magazine Chi was reportedly planning to publish the pictures. Last year, William and Kate went to court over a French gossip magazine’s publication of topless photos of the duchess while the couple was on a holiday in the south of France.
Alec Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria, are expecting their first child together. Publicist Matthew Hiltzik confirmed Tuesday that Hilaria is due late this summer. Alec Baldwin already is the father of a 17-year-old daughter, Ireland, from his previous marriage to actress Kim Basinger.
