Kate Middleton has got a great eye for photography, and she's ready to share her gift with the world. The Duchess of Cambridge snapped a series of photographs while she and husband Prince William were touring Asia in September, and the images were posted to the couple's website today.
Don't expect any candid personal photos, though. The pictures released focuse instead on the new environment that Middleton was visiting and showcase some of her exotic surroundings.
"The following photographs were taken by The Duchess of Cambridge during a visit to the Research Station at Danum Valley, Borneo, Malaysia during her Diamond Jubilee tour with The Duke of Cambridge to South East Asia and the South Pacific in September," the website explains.
There are seven images in total, all of which taken by Middleton during her time in Malaysia. The photos are of everything from a jungle clearing to an endangered Orangutan to a palm oil plantation and are all very beautifully shot.
These photos were taken not long after topless photos of Middleton were posted in a French tabloid magazine. The Royal Family have since taken legal action against the magazine, Closer, and have banned the re-publishing and distribution of the photos.
"Their royal highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner," the Royal Family said in a statement at the time. "Their royal highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them."
