Kate Middleton has been upskirted by the wind one too many times. If you remember her yellow Jenny Packham dress from the Calgary International Airport visit 2011 and the scarlet Catherine Walker coat dress she wore while carrying Prince George as they arrived in Wellington, New Zealand, you know enough to conclude that the Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe is in need of some serious behavioural review.

German tabloid published a photo of Kate's exposed behind as a burst of wind did what most bursts of wind do – lift skirts. She and Prince William were on a visit to the Australian Blue Mountains last month when amateur Australian photographer, Diane Morel took the offending photo of Kate wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress.

"It wasn't until I got home and I popped my camera card into the computer that I realised what I had captured," Diane said. She then decided to donate any money raised from the sale of the photo to the Blue Mountains Bushfire Mayoral Relief Fund, since "Kate and William spent so much time speaking to the victims of the bushfires." We're not sure how much of a redemption that is, but okay.

Outside playing accidental Marilyn Monroe to airstrip gales, Kate is currently on a tour in Scotland with William, sans George and light, airy skirts... so far.
