The photo immediately left fans criticising it. One wrote: “No one wants to see a lil girl tryna be a grown woman in a bikini”.
Another mum commented: “Don’t think id let my little girl pose like this in a bikini…..no way! Shes a beautiful child and I admire kate as a mum but not a chance would i post this”(sic)
One disagreed and explained: “really? Her mums a model. She’s gonna do poses like her mum. People need to get a life. Princess is a gorgeous little lady and with her natural beauty will likely go on to do modelling herself.”
Katie had previously shared an intimate snap of herself, revealing a pink crocheted bikini from her own clothing range Katie Price Boutique.
