Not even Kate Middleton can escape the dreaded wardrobe malfunction.
During last month's Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia, the Duchess of Cambridge experienced an embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment when a gust of wind from a helicopter lifted her Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress up in the air, exposing her bare butt. (Don't you hate it when that happens?)
Although the revealing moment happened in May, photo evidence surfaced on Tuesday when a German tabloid published the pics, spurring controversy about privacy rights for the royal family.
The Daily Mail called Bild's photos "a breach of privacy" with "a series of tasteless headlines" and "crude captions" (despite the fact that the paper is known for publishing scandalous photos of women).
Duchess Kate's photo ran alongside pics of Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, all from behind, with the caption, "Khloe, Kim and Kate—butts which have moved us these past few days."
In the accompanying article, the paper described Catherine's pic as: "Photos show our favorite 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!"
Although Kensington Palace has yet to comment on the scandalous photo, we're sure the royal family is pretty upset, especially judging by how they reacted after a French magazine published topless photos of the Duchess in 2012.
The result was that the photographer who took the photos and the editor of Closer magazine were charged and it was ruled that the pics could never be published or sold again. Unfortunately, the Internet lives forever.
