Katherine appeared to have already caught the sun, and she showed off her bronzed skin tone in an orange bikini that served to accentuate her slender frame. 

The pair appeared to be making the most of a welcome overseas break, Barley’s first with Katherine first since publicly confirming their relationship during a joint appearance in February.
