German tabloid runs pic of Kate Middleton's bare bum

Last month Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge along with her husband Prince William and baby Prince George completed a triumphant Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand, thrilling crowds and creating snap worthy moments wherever they went.

Unfortunately the Duchess has provided one German publication with a photo that is sure to cause an uproar at Kensington Palace. According to Us weekly Bild magazine ran a story about Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and the Duchess but the photo of Kate was of her bare bottom exposed by a gust of wind from a helicopter. The caption that accompanied it read, “Khloe, Kim and Kate – butts which have moved us these past few days.”

The German tabloid described the risqué photo 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!"

The offending photograph shows Prince William with his arm around his wife as the pair stepped off a helicopter during their April 17 stop in Winmalee, Australia. There they met with bush fire victims and emergency relief personnel.

Royal officials have not yet commented on the scandalous snap but they are sure to be furious. In 2012 Kate was photographed topless on a private property in Southern France and the images were published by a French magazine named Closer in September of that year. The photographer and the editor were charged and the photos can never be published or sold again.
