A PHOTO of Kate Middleton's bare bottom taken when she and William arrived in the Blue Mountains in New South Wales has been published by a German website.
The photograph, first published on the German Bild, was reportedly taken when Kate and William arrived by helicopter in April as part of their Australian Royal visit.
Catherine's bottom was revealed when her blue and white frock was blown up by the air from the helicopter's rotor blade.
Bild published the photograph in a story about celebrity bottoms.
It included an enlarged picture of the Duchesse's rear alongside snaps of Kim and Khloe Kardashian.
"There have been pictures that show our beloved Duchess Kate in the Australian Blue Mountains,'' the website enthused.
"The rotor of the Royal helicopter blew up the air so much that Kate's dress went up and gave a fine view of her bottom. Never before have we been so grateful to a helicopter for making wind."
