Upsetting as the release of photos of her naked at a private villa has been for Kate Middleton, they've actually helped her self-image, according to reports.
Insiders say the Duchess of Cambridge has never been very confident about her body, and once the initial shock of the Kate Middleton topless pictures' release dissipated, support - and positive feedback - from Internet users and the public has boosted her confidence.
“Kate has always been insecure,” a source said.
“While she wasn’t amused that the world’s media published photos of her topless and naked, she has been given something of a boost from the whole scandal."
“Kate has seen some of the positive comments about her body on the internet. It’s made her feel much more positive. But she’ll be more careful in the future.”
She does look good. However, this isn't to say that the Kate Middleton nude photos are being embraced by the royal family, least of all by the Duchess herself.
She is said to be terrified she has ruined her reputation and embarrassed her husband after she was exposed in a new series of completely bottomless photos.
“Kate is mortified,” a source said.
“Since she met William, she’s constantly been on guard. When they used to go away with friends, Kate would lecture everyone on what not to do in case there were photographers.”
The 30-year-old future Queen is devastated at the thought of upsetting the royal family and can’t stop apologizing since the photos of her leaked.
