Please learn to keep covered up, Kate!
The Daily Mail ^ | 5-28-14 | Amanda Platell

Posted on 05/28/2014 8:41:34 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

Oh no, Kate. Not again. How my heart sank when I saw the Duchess has had yet another embarrassing wardrobe malfunction, this time as she prepared to board a helicopter with her husband, William.

Pictures published yesterday by a German newspaper show Kate during the royal couple’s recent tour of Australia and New Zealand, when her flimsy Diane von Furstenberg frock was lifted sky-high by a gust from the chopper’s blades, exposing her bare bottom.

A cheeky passing photographer managed to capture the Duchess’s rear in all its glory.

To make matters more humiliating, Kate appears to be wearing a thong that would make even a cheese cutter wince.

First, let me say that it was wrong of the newspaper to publish the pictures. The British press had refused to print them, but the shots had gone to the highest worldwide bidder.

And it’s terribly sad for Kate that her pert derriere will now be the image that forever marks any recollection of her and William’s triumphant tour.

How mortifying for any woman to be pictured in such an unedifying way.

But I couldn’t help but think that surely Kate could have tried a little harder to keep her modesty under wraps? As a relatively seasoned member of the Royal Family, isn’t it time she made more of an effort to cover up?

After all, every woman — especially a public figure who is constantly photographed — knows that a lightweight fly-away dress and the merest threat of a breeze hardly marks the right occasion to wear the skimpiest knickers in your drawer.

Indeed, sadly I feel there is barely a part of the Duchess’s body that I haven’t seen. It’s not so long ago that Kate was snapped topless on a French holiday with William.

I suspect Amanda is living in a bygone era. Women today much less often find it “mortifying for any woman to be pictured in such an unedifying way.” In fact, they rather like showing off the goods, as the Dutchess has proven on more than this occasion.

Men all over the planet are drooling ... but I think the "problem" is neither Kate nor her wardrobe ...

Sir, we'll be landing in five ..

Good ... how's the wind ?

5-10 with gusts, sir

(loving couple looks into each others eyes, smiles and winks )

Thank you, Jeeves

I was hoping this was about the jubtabulous Kate Upton.

Crestfallen, I went to your link to make sure I was as offended as Amanda Platell, but the offending photo was pixelated.

Even a GIS didn’t find it...oh well, time to go to lunch.

And that's the point -- she doesn't want to.

Ahh, hell. She’s a very good-looking, Sweet young lady, and if the wind blows her wardrobe around, no big deal.

She’s classy enough to let it roll right off her.

Much ado about nothing.

Nah, just weights sewn into the hem of the skirt. The female members of the royal family do that....or so I thought.

I take no offense.

Kate is simply one of the most beautiful women on the planet, and seems to have a wonderful personality as well.

The amusing part about this for me is that everyone still expects the royal family to be dignified and proper. That went out the window decades ago.

Of course, most women today have solved this problem by just refusing to wear dresses anymore, now it’s all just Lululemon and TNA yoga pants.

Hardly mortifying, she didn't put that outfit on accidentally. Has Kate never heard of Skirt Alert!!! That skirt was flimsy as they come.

She's evolved into quite the exhibitionist, with some pretty eye friendly stuff to exhibit. I mean check out that a$$!!!

It's very simple, and it'll stop the argument. We'll trade the Brits Prince William and Princess Kate for Prince Michelle and Princess Barack. That way, they won't have a princess whose bum is seen all over the world, and they'll have a prince whose bum is six-axe-handles wide.

Then we'll also have the class and elegance, and the Brits will have a useless, conniving, sulky little princess and his classless wife, the prince.

I think she’s doing pretty well for somebody that’s followed 24/7 by photographers just waiting to catch those moments.

And it’s a nice butt too. Shapely and pleasant to measure. Not like Hillary’s butt with Cottage Cheese Cheeks

Thank you. While eating my lunch, I found the offending photo on bild.de. I couldn’t see any thong either!

Unlike the Daily Mail writer, I wasn’t afflicted with the vapours after casting my eyes upon said “royal” gluteus maximus. That was a close call, I dare say.

A surprising number of women wear nothing under the dress or slacks and top, as I’ve seen when the woman,carelessly or perhaps deliberately, exposes her assets while picking some item from a low shelf in a store.

Considering how many women ape the fashions of the Hollywood stars,and how many of those show up in revealing,nay flaunting, gowns. no one ought be surprised by sight of intimate female flesh.

islam will solve the “problem” by stoning all these women to death.

Kate is a very fit lady. Not many gals at the age of 30-something could be that fit.

I could understand a one time dress/skirt malfunction. But she keeps it up. On official tour, in Canada, flash bottom (first a couple of times & couple of yrs ago), then topless & bottomless photos (ok, that was in private territory) and then, on an official tour of Australia with her bare butt & way up legs flashing! It really isn’t that hard to keep her skirts or dresses down on official tours & engagements. It’s in bad taste, no excuses, and frankly it is appalling.
