The Mayor of the Blue Mountains will not accept any of the money received from the sale of the picture of Kate.

When she will behave like other royal princesses and will put weights on her skirts/dresses, we won't have these discussion and pics...

When she got off the plane in the red dress carrying George and there were the high winds those skirts went pretty high..the world almost got to see things they shouldn't.

One one think that would give her more of a sense of caution. I don't think she is doing anything deliberately...I think she is just not taking her wardrobe mishaps seriously enough when it comes to making sure to do everything she can so that it doesn't happen again.

If she doesn't want to wear weights then she needs to change the style of dress and/or move into wearing pants during the times when exposure would be at the greatest risk.

While I feel for Kate, this isn't the first time this has happened. As she is the most photographed woman in the world, perhaps she should think about purchasing better underwear for public events.

They make those boy short type underwear ...at least if she had a mishap all you would see is something similar to a pair of shorts like the runners wear.

I don't see it as a breach of privacy to run a pic of a royal on public duties accidentally displaying her buttocks, just tacky.

Totally agree. Then we could move on to occupying ourselves with thoughts of the cause for which she is appearing, and not be distracted by what she is showing us of her own body. After all, her association with a cause is supposed to benefit the cause. That's her purpose.

I don't understand why this incident is referred to breach of privacy, its not a picture that was taken on a private event or on holiday. This picture was taken at an official event. So exactly how is it breach of privacy. In this incident, I would only blame Kate unfortunately for not thinking twice before stepping out. At the end of this, it's an unfortunate thing that happened.

I like Kate...think she is good for the royal family. She just needs to get it together with her wardrobe people so we don't have to talk about this again.

The entire Blue Mountain engagement went just fine and Catherine's dress didn't blow in the wind during it. It was when they landed in the helicopter before traveling by car to the engagement that the wind got the better of her dress just that split second. In the very few pictures (maybe two) that were published of them disembarking from the helicopter Catherine was seen holding her dress when coming off the helicopter. She was simply doing what she was suppose to do and being a lady in a windy moment.

The photographer who took the picture should have known better to not publish that one picture which wasn't Catherine's fault at all. She/he who took it did this on purpose and the magazine decided to cash in on it. I just find that totally disrespectful towards Catherine and to women in general. Then an Australian newspaper decided to print the picture as well. A very low blow towards a person that took the time to travel a very long way to meet the nice people of Australia and shake countless hands.

It was an unfortunate moment that shouldn't have publicized. Instead of people complaining about a photographer and the media taking the time to make a personal moment their biggest headline and making money off of it, they've decided to come down on Catherine for it when she did nothing wrong. She protected her modesty with grace and dignity.

Unfortunately, the message the media is getting that it's totally okay to photograph, publish and make money off of women in very unfortunate moments when wearing a dress in windy conditions.

It is a usual boring narrative. The preachy lamentation does not change anything. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, never learnt from her past faux pas.

She did learn and if others ever took the time to look at the pictures you would see that Catherine had her hands over her dress because of the wind that came from the helicopter.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, should learn some more then. Giving ardent speeches and shaming public at this point are futile.

The Duchess of Cambridge didn't shame the public at all. Lots of ladies go through this kind of thing and royal ladies as well. It was an unfortunate incident that the media decided to some money off of and others to blow way out of proportion. The visit to the Blue Mountains was a success, the Cambridge's had fun and Catherine looked great.

Things happen, mistakes happen and usually when they do, someone (in a kindly manner mostly) points it out. If one chooses to be open and take the correction, life goes on and one learns and remembers. If one takes offense (or the mistake is pointed out in a derogatory manner or with a lofty attitude of "knowing better"), it creates a feeling of being slighted and tends to be ignored.
We do not know if anyone has ever said anything to Kate nor do we know what her reactions might of been if any.

Just for the record though, the title Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge denotes that she is a divorced woman that was married to a peer of the realm. She is either The Duchess of Cambridge or just plain Catherine. Took me a few years to have that one sink in.

The shaming is the responsibility of the person who took the picture and made money off the sell of same......a woman no less making money off the butt of another woman is disgusting to say the least! Catherine did nothing wrong, she had her hands in front of her dress and there are dozens of pictures that show that during the tour. Anyone who takes this picture and sell it to make a damn dollar is a disgusting hateful ignorant arrogant idiot in my book, they have something to be a shamed of, not Catherine!

I agree. Catherine did nothing wrong but it was the photographer that decided to be nasty and took the time to bring this one photo to the worlds attention. That photographer and magazine wanted some attention and they got it the stupid way.

I did not say that the couple or the lady in question shamed the public. I was referring to her fans, who started sounding like the Propaganda department of the Central Committee of the Communist party.
The British royal handlers are very slow and clumsy to address mistakes.
