There is at least one site out there that has pictures that weren't in the British papers. I know because I've seen the pictures. Let me take a look around.

These might be the same ones that I saw. I suppose it's entirely too much to expect that photographer or editor to put an "x" over these "undie" shots rather than print or upload them.

Yes, I agree. Really, how many people like us want to see Kate's underwear? Not many, I'd wager.

To be honest, I feel really embarrassed now that I posted those links. I realize that I sound like I'm trying to bash Kate, but all I really wanted to do was prove she's not as innocent as the press makes her out to be. I never liked how the press made her sound like she could walk on water. I never once thought about the photographers. Now, I feel really silly and stupid.

You are neither silly nor stupid for posting them. It is sometimes difficult to remember that Kate, good or bad, is still a young woman entitled to follow the normal fashion trends. She shouldn't be forced to dress in a manner that might accommodate other peoples view of what is right for a possible future princess. It is not unusual for photographers to take the most revealing photographs of a young woman and infer that she is less than savoury because of them, the 'men' who indulge their fantasies in this way, really are pathetic creatures.

the other side of the story is that it is no secret that the british tabloids will print anything they get in order to make money. they are known for being ruthless, not only since yesterday.

everybody, including kate middleton, knows that these parameters won't change and that it is a certainty that such pictures will be printed. so if you don't want to be photographed in an unfortunate angle, with your normal short dress appearing shorter and maybe revealing more that you or other people want to see the next day DO NOT BRING YOURSELF IN THE POSITION to be photographed like that. very simple.

nobody ever forced kate middleton to go out in a short dress / getting hammered in a club / wearing roller skates and hotpants, therefore the only conclusion is that she takes such pictures / coverage into account as calculated risk.

I think both Sky and the Duke have made a valid point: such low life exist, and you just need to be careful of what you wear, especially when you are concerned that there may be a phtographer around. That said, little incidents like this happen, and I for one, do not really take much notice of them. I personally have no problen with Kate's sense of dress.

I don't know about the blue dress, but I've seen photos of her wearing the other two and there is nothing scandalous about them, both are really knee-length.

We all know that slim-cut skirts ride up when you sit, especially when you're trying to get into or out of a car.

And if there's a photographer shooting from just the right angle he/she could get an underwear shot... IMO, these photos say more about the photographer than they say about Kate!

yes muriel, i agree, such low life exists and especially these days people in britain are shown day in day out that moral or human boundaries do not seem to exist anymore when reading all this stuff about jade goody dying publicly from cancer (please don't want to start a discussion about goody's intentions, that's another story, only to stress the level of voyeurism that is asked for and shown in britain). from that perspective a picture showing parts of kate's underwear is almost a trifle, nothing people should be surprised or even be outraged about ... sad but true.

Maybe they're going to have an eight year courtship like the Crown Princess of Sweden. And if that's the case, then the skirts flying aren't going to make much difference.

yes, I believe you are right...NotAPretender, I think it may even be longer. I think Kate knows what she is doing by waiting. she knows when she marries William she will be public domain and is loving having some kind of life to herself while she can. IMO

That really puts things in perspective D of M! I can't understand the idea of people being "entertained" by watching a young mother die of cancer. I wonder what the ultimate low is that the media and watchers will sink to: live displays of cannabalism? Kate's undies are indeed "small potatoes" compared to what else is out there.

Don't hold your breath on that -- as far as posting the "damning pics," that is.

Those pictures of Kate's "underwear" are pictures from shutter speeds faster than the speed of sound aimed directly at her hem while she was entering a car. I suppose if Kate had used her hand to clamp the crotch of her dress so as not to expose anything above her knee she would have been criticized by same set for being a prude.

But as usual she is accused of exposing her "underwear" as if she was sitting still in the car seat as if posing for a still portrait, with her legs spread east and west, with her index finger pointing to her crotch. This "showing her underwear" gripe is the same tired line of attack repeated for years by the same people who have absolutely nothing positive to say about this girl at all. Don't fall for it. If you want to get a sense of just how fast those lenses are clicking as she enters a car, I WILL FIND THE LINK AND POST IT.

I didn't set out to bash Kate, even though my posting the links contradict that. I am neither against or for her, mainly because I don't even know her. How can I be for or against someone I don't know?
