Kate Middleton and Prince William have been named 2013's most inspiring couple, besting Hollywood royalty, more actual royalty and even fictional characters.

According to a new poll of several thousand UK residents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge topped the list, which also includes his dad and grandma.

"It’s the first time we have seen three generations of royal couples make the top ten list of most inspiring couples," said Travelodge, which conducted the survey.

Following William and Kate Middleton came David and Victoria Beckham, with Jay-Z and Beyonce, and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also appearing on it.

One U.S. tabloid has published the controversial Kate Middleton baby bump photos taken on her vacation in Mustique. The Duchess is on the cover of Star.

Kate Middleton Baby Bump Photo

Italy's Chi magazine was the first to run the Kate Middleton baby bump photos, which were apparently taken with a long lens from the ocean, this week.

Unlike last year's scandal, during which Chi ran topless photos of the 31-year-old at a private villa, this batch features her in a bikini and on a beach.

Under fire from the royal family and others for running Kate Middleton baby bump photos in its latest issue, Italy's Chi Magazine has no regrets.

Signorini said in a statement Wednesday:

"The photographs were bought from an international agency. We cannot talk about a violation of privacy when we publish pictures of public people in a public place."

"You can't compare this with the media persecution of Lady Diana. I cannot stress enough that the photos were taken in a public place, not private property."

As promised, Chi Magazine defiantly published long-lens photos of the pregnant Kate Middleton strolling on the beach in Mustique in a blue bikini.

With the 31-year-old Duchess' ever-so-slight baby bump visible, the magazine's headline reads "La Pancia Cresce." Translation: "Your Belly Grows."

So does the controversy over Kate's right to privacy.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have some pretty nice digs on their "babymoon" - and are intent on keeping a low profile - in the idyllic island of Mustique.

Expecting their first baby in July, Prince William and Kate Middleton are staying at a five-bedroom villa set in lush gardens, which costs $25,000 a week:
