Daily Mail Runs Kate Middleton Up-Skirt Photos

Daily Mail runs pictures taken last week of Kate's dress blowing up in the wind

The first rumours that there was (another) batch of unusally revealing photos of Kate Middleton circulating came last week when reports began to circulate on twitter that Kate had been photographed at a friend's wedding with her skirt blowing up particularly high in the wind.

Kate suffered a similar wardrobe malfunction wearing the same Topshop dress when she arrived at the Harry Potter Studios with William and Harry last month.

And whilst Kate's decision not to have her clothes fitted with weights (as the Queen does) is questionable, even more questionable is the decision of the Daily Mail to run the pictures of Kate - who let us recall is seven months pregnant - today, a week after they were taken.

Whilst the pictures are clearly not as revealing as the topless pictures which the Mail made a big show of not running, they are still not exactly in the best possible taste.

The palace seems unlikely to comment, but they are bound to be irritated, especially as Kate and William were not on an official engagement, and simply attempting to live as private citizens and go to a friend's wedding.
