Katie Price faces backlash over picture of nine-year-old daughter Princess in a bikini

Katie Price has sparked a fierce debate on social media after posting a ‘provocative’ picture of nine-year-old daughter Princess in a bikini.

The mum-of-five shared the snap of Princess posing in a bikini on her Instagram account, while the family were on holiday in the Maldives.

‘Princess loving her holiday @kandima_maldives wearing hat from @creativeedgeattire love these fur flip flops @prettybowchic 💕’, she captioned the picture of her daughter posing in her flowery swimwear.

But while some fans were gushing over the snap, others weren’t very happy about Katie sharing the picture of her young daughter on social media.

Many parents commented that they wouldn’t post similar pictures of their children, and accused the star of posting a provocative snap of her child.

‘Dont think id let my little girl pose like this in a bikini…..no way! She’s a beautiful child and i admire kate as a mum but not a chance would i post this’, one fan commented.

‘It’s the way she’s standing .. provocatively. She’s a child’, another fan wrote under the picture of Princess.

Others said they worried about the exposure her daughter was getting from Katie posting a picture of her in a bikini on social media.

‘Just think that kids should be kids .. my opinion that’s all I never said she was a bad parent I just worry about some pervert seeing young girls like this that’s all’, one said.

Some of Katie’s fans stepped in to defend her actions, commenting to say how their own kids do the same pose in photographs.

‘I don’t agree with all the hate people are giving Katie for this picture, almost every picture you see online these days of little girls have poses like this! She’s not being exploited in any way shape or form, it’s the minds of everyone else that’s see’s it as something it’s not, leave her alone for goodness sake!!!’, one fan wrote on Instagram.

‘Seriously 😒 I have three daughters my oldest is 11 and constantly poses and pouts! @officialkatieprice ur a great mum!’, another said.
