German Tabloid Publishes Picture of Kate Middleton's Bare Bottom

Kate Middleton, also known as the Duchess of Cambridge, had her bare bottom exposed today by a German tabloid website.

Bild published a photograph of Middleton from behind as her dress blew up while she was walking away from a helicopter in Australia last month.

According to the Daily Mail, Bild.de included the caption, "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!"

In true tasteless tabloid fashion, Bild.de compared Middleton's bottom to the rears of Kim and Khloe Kardashian.

The set of bottomless pictures were offered to the British tabloids by the sleazy photographer, but none of the UK mags would bite. Publishers in the United States, France and Germany, however, reportedly bought the pictures for more than $100,000, noted The Huffington Post.

Prince William and the Duchess sued a French magazine when it published topless pictures of Middleton while they were on vacation in 2013.

Clarence House, which handles PR for the royal family, has not issued a statement.
