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 couples recent tour of Australia and New Zealand, when her flimsy Diane von Furstenberg frock was lifted sky-high by a gust from the choppers blades, exposing her bare bottom.
A cheeky passing photographer managed to capture the Duchesss 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 its terribly sad for Kate that her pert derriere will now be the image that forever marks any recollection of her and Williams triumphant tour.
How mortifying for any woman to be pictured in such an unedifying way.
But I couldnt 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, isnt 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 Duchesss body that I havent seen. Its not so long ago that Kate was snapped topless on a French holiday with William.

Please learn to keep covered up, Kate! As the Duchess is embarrassed by yet another wardrobe malfunction AMANDA PLATELL is running out of sympathy
Amanda has a point...
Many pictures at the link. A whole retrospective...
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.
How dare she wear dresses when it’s windy! SHAME SHAME SHAME!
Pants Suits and cankles for yu!
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.
A lady would not leave home without panties.
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.
I know that. That is why I didn't post any pictures. You'll have to click on the link to see them. ;-)
from what I saw William is a very lucky man
Nah, just weights sewn into the hem of the skirt. The female members of the royal family do that....or so I thought.
Three cheers for rotary wing AC’s!!!
i beg to differ... honestly, she could be wearing a modest bathing suit underneath that dress for all we know...
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$$!!!
Groom of the Stool, meet Chambermaid of the Beaver.
Was she flanked by Scots Honor Guards in Full Regimental?
If you’ve got it, flaunt it.
The royal family is one big embarrassment now. The present queen should be the last.
Yes, we call them sluts
The picture is on the net. Do you want the link?
They talk about a thong but I sure couldn’t see it if she was wearing one.
Sorta like that mighty revengeful poke on Fargo last night?
Is that you, AJ Maggot?
simply another example of how having money and position doesn’t give you class. i kinda expected more of Kate, but am not surprised.
In my 6 plus decades of admiring the feminine form, I would have to say....that is one fine hiney.
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.
thong = ‘butt floss’. ;-)
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.
Vendome to the rescue.
Ping to our fearless leader for his hittin pleasure.
B F L
And we'll give them the Kartrashians as a bonus.
What is the big deal? Would you prefer seeing Rosie O’donnell? I do have a problem with the paparazi. I wouldn’t care if a cannibal serial killer ate every one of them. Kate is all right in my book.
You are a gentleman and a scholar. That is one high-class hiney, to be sure.
Not according to the picture.
Imagine that it was Moochelle!!
(ha ha - total buzz-kill, guys) :-)
Michael the “prince” should be so proud...gag
Kate, you just plain bad. There ain’t no two ways about it.
So - what effect did the photo have on your appetite?
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.
