After embarrassing photos of Kate Middleton were published last week, the Duchess of Cambridge is taking measures to ensure that it doesn't happen again.

During the royal tour in April, Duchess Catherine was photographed just as a gust of wind lifted up her sold-out Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, exposing her bare butt. A German tabloid then published the pics, prompting concerns over privacy for the royals.

Now, according to The Mirror, the 32-year-old has hired a "butt bodyguard" to stop photographers from taking potentially embarrassing pics just in case a Marilyn Monroe moment should ever happen again.

According to reports, palace officials have hired a female minder to accompany Duchess Kate on shopping trips so that photographers can't snap her from behind.

The Royal Family have long battled with the press over privacy rights and preventing photos from being published, most notably when a French magazine published photos of a topless Kate while she and William were on holiday in 2012.

Kate also face a potentially tricky wardrobe malfunction when, during a trip to Canada in 2011, a gust of wind blew up her skirt, revealing her bare legs and a hint of her bottom.

What do you think? Does Kate Middleton need a "butt bodyguard?" Should these photos be published? Sound off in the comments below.
