Kate Middleton Prince William

If you haven't taken a peek at the photo of Kate Middleton's bare bum that was published on a German website, you're definitely in the minority. Pretty much everyone is buzzing about just how freakin' amazing her derriere is.

Seriously, it's so toned and perfect, it's unfair, especially given how gorgeous the rest of her is. Doesn't she have any flaws?!?

Apparently not ... or at least not in the physical sense. And while I guess we shouldn't be all that surprised that Kate has an applause-worthy rear end, the fact that she prefers thong underwear seems a little naughty, don't you think?

As a proper royal, I had her pegged for a briefs kinda gal. (Or at least a modest pair of those boy short things.)

In addition to Bild.de, an Australian newspaper has also published Kate's bum photo, which of course has resulted in more people giving her a hard time about "allowing" a wardrobe malfunction like this to take place.

I never realized this, but supposedly Queen Elizabeth weights the hems of her dresses so she doesn't suffer a similar mishap. Some folks are wondering why Kate doesn't choose to do the same.

Considering the fact that she does appear to prefer undies with minimal coverage, you have to admit it's a pretty valid question. Flowy dresses and windy days definitely don't mix, and Kate should be well aware that photographers are dying to capture a scandalous shot of her like this. She really should make the extra effort to avoid giving them the opportunity.

Besides, given the topless photo scandal that went down in the past, Kate is no stranger to the embarrassment that goes along with this kind of exposure. It seems odd for her not to cover up a little more underneath her skirts just in case.

But given how much attention her now famous bum is receiving, something tells me underwear shopping is pretty high on Kate's list at this point. She really can't afford to suffer any more public humiliation, even if it comes with the risk of having a wedgie.

Do you think Kate's bum mishap is her own fault?
