Pixelated Princess

The Daily Mail blurred Kate’s bum. I seriously think they may have a member of the design department dedicated to blurring these indiscretions.

Yet another pictures has surfaced featuring the Duchess’s bum. One bystander of the event came forward recently with the photo. This “breach of privacy” happened literally days after Kate’s infamous landing in New Zealand first thing of the tour.

And, as I mentioned long ago, this wasn’t her first “Marilyn Moment.” For pete’s sake, there are enough moments like this that some sites have compiled slideshows.

The Ingenious that is ‘Underwear’

Here’s the thing: upon Kate’s first incident–of this tour–she should have either inserted weights in her hems, or worn a slip. Or maybe, I don’t know, a pair of underwear (call me crazy)... Heck, had I been her I would have put on Spanx over a pair of underwear–and most likely I would now be a never-nude a la Tobias Fuenke.

Royal DishI think that’s the reaction many would have after such incidents.

But really, she should have had such reactions after the first time it happened on tour, in Canada. The fact that those are among the first photos that pop up when you search “Kate Middleton Canada” should be a wake up call. And the fact that when you type in “Kate Middleton Dre…” it autocorrects with “Kate Middleton Dress Blows Up,” would make you think she’d be a bit more thoughtful about her undergarments in the future.

Breach of Privacy or Breach of Wardrobe?

So was it a “breach of privacy?” Firstly: I’m against the selling of such photos that someone has snapped, accidentally or purposely… but I do think calling this incident a “breach of privacy” is a stretch. It was at a public event. She was aware of the task at hand and the appropriate thing to wear. She decided against protecting herself from such incidents and decided to take a chance.

In fact, it wasn’t even a “wardrobe malfunction.” Everything functioned correctly. Her dress was made to flutter should there be wind. Her lack of underwear (or whatever she did wear) kept her bum uncovered, and voila. It’s not rocket science.

And had it been a “wardrobe malfunction,” she is still responsible. When Janet Jackson coined the phrase, she and the CBS network faced large fines…

How to stop your Marilyn moments, Kate

When articles are dedicated to informing you of how not to flash your bum, it’s time to take a hint.

  1. You are correct, this is not a breech of privacy. She was on an official engagement and her skirt flew up on it’s own (well, it was the wind, but I mean a person did not lift the skirt). Anyone standing behind her would have had a full view of her backside; just because a photographer was there and captured a picture of it doesn’t mean the photog did anything wrong.

    Very interesting that the palace is currently SILENT on this entire situation. It is almost as if Kate’s freezing out of the Royal family process has started. Which may culminate in the Duchess being made to comply with a dress code, private psychological therapy, and/or face divorce. Kate clearly does not understand that her deviant behavior threatens the decorum as well as timeless dignity of The Monarchy itself. ps: The public is not buying the story that it is the photographer’s fault on a public engagement that Kate did not wear undergarments or prepare her wardrobe properly to avoid exposing herself.

      I cannot fathom what must be going down at KP right now. But I suspect Kate is in the enabling arms of her mummy right now. I think she thinks PG was her ticket to rule without inhibition, or excuses! Sad.

      I think William may get a kick out of his “royal rebel” of a wife…or he is desperately remorseful. It’s all sad.

  3. What’s interesting is that Kate has most of her clothing tailored to her body, which is banana shaped with a long torso, whether it’s designer duds or High Street frocks, she has them altered to enhance her figure. It’s not difficult to ask for weights to be sewn in when the tailor is making the alterations.

      I almost wonder if conversations go like such with her dresser…”Did you put on underwear…” “Of course!” Upon reaching the event… “Kate! Your knickers! Where are they?” *Kate skips away…* “Woops! Must’ve slipped my mind!” Meanwhile the dresser, too, receives a lecture from HM.
