Well, after so many previous wardrobe malfunctions and flesh-flashing incidents, we have told Kate over and again to get some damn hem weights for her skirts so they don’t blow up in the wind.
But would she listen?
She would not.
Well, now, of course, the inevitable has happened. A German newspaper has, rather cheekily, decided to run an extremely revealing photograph of Kate Middleton’s apparently bare butt, revealed when a gust of wind blew her flimsy skirt up on tour in Australia.
The Queen, who has lead weights sewn into her dress, would never let such a wardrobe malfunction occurr.
The pictures were offered to UK media, who dutifully turned them down.
While publication of the picture by the tabloid newspaper Bild this morning will certainly infuriate William and the palace, it will be unlikely to provoke any attempt at legal action as the picture was taken on an official engagement during Kate’s recent tour of Australia when a gust of wind briefly caught her dress as she boarded a helicopter.
If people inadvertantly flash photographers on public engagements, well, that’s their lookout.
There can be no suggestion it was sneaked illegally.
Bild ran the photograph alongside rear-view pictures of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, with the caption: “Khloe, Kim and Kate—butts which have moved us these past few days.”
The publication said, “Photos show our favourite Duchess Kate, 32, in the Australian Blue Mountains. The rotor blades of the royal helicopter swirl the air so that Kate’s summer dress blew up—giving a clear view of her beautiful bum!”
