I was going to update my previous post, but I didn’t want to sully it, since it was mainly about Kate’s Tour wardrobe, so I made a whole new post for this. If you recall from my previous post I mentioned an Express article that said there was a photo being shopped around of Kate’s bare bum from when she got out of the helicopter at the Blue Mountains while in Australia during the Royal Tour. Well… that photo has come out.
It’s by an amateur photographer apparently, and the photo is kind of fuzzy, but you can clearly see the lower half of Kate’s butt cheeks. I’m not going to post the photo but here is a link to the photo, and here is a link to the article it came from. I haven’t seen the photo on any other site as of the time of this posting, but should it be posted elsewhere or should a row over the photo happen, I’ll update the post.
So let’s run the numbers. By my count, this is the eighth (8th) time Kate’s skirt has flow up in the wind while she was on an official engagement, and this is the second (2nd) bare bum photo we’ve seen (not counting the France photos; those are different as she was not on an official engagement at the time they were taken).
The “Marilyn Moment” (or should we refer to it as the “Kate Moment” now? She’s done it far more than Marilyn did) list goes like this:
4 July 2011: Kate wore an Alexander McQueen nautical-themed dress to an appearance on Prince Edward Island during the Canada Tour in 2011.
7 July 2011: Kate wore a Jenny Packham yellow dress while getting off the plane in Calgary and meeting a young cancer patient. This also included a bare bum photo.
21 February 2012: Kate wore an Orla Kiely brown patterned dress for a visit to Oxford.
19 September 2012: Kate wore a Project D London floral-print dress to change planes in Brisbane, Australia after the SE Asia Tour in 2012.
11 May 2013: Kate wore a Topshop black and white polka-dotted dress to a friend’s wedding… while she was pregnant.
20 November 2013: Kate wore an Orla Kiely navy skirt to a visit to Place2Be, where she greeted children.
6 April 2014: Kate wore a Catherine Walker red coat, and a red dress underneath, while getting off the plane in New Zealand to start the OZ/NZ Tour in 2014.
17 April 2014: Kate wore a Diane von Furstenberg blue and white patterned dress while exiting a helicopter to visit the Blue Mountains in Australia during the Royal Tour.
She’s had two fly-ups every year since she married.
So yeah, eight fly-ups, two bare bum photos. Here’s my question, why doesn’t she wear underwear while on official engagements? Or is she wearing a thong and we can’t see it from the angle of the photo? And why FFS can’t she weight her hems? I just don’t understand the logic behind this. Why would she risk it? She knows she’d get major criticism for it, so why does she court this type of criticism? Or is it some type of FU to her critics? Like she’s throwing her bare bum in our faces just to piss us off (which I could totally see being a possibility; it would be super childish, but I could imagine people doing that–like some teenage brat who moons people just to make them cringe). I understand that there is some type of thrill for some people when they do stuff like this, but how does the thrill it gives one out way the negativity one knows one will get if exposed? I just don’t get it!
Dear Kate: please, please, please WEIGHT YOUR BLOODY HEMS!!
