A picture of the Duchess of Cambridge, in which she is seen exposing her bare bottom, has been published by German tabloid Bild.
The image was taken by a photographer during the recent royal tour of Australia.
The Duke and Duchess were visiting the Blue Mountains near Sydney when a blast of wind from a nearby helicopter blew up her Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress and accidentally flashed her backside.
The newspaper published the revealing photograph alongside two other pictures of reality TV stars Kim and Kloe Kardashian, who were snapped in similarly compromising positions recently.
The translated caption read: “Khloe, Kim and Kate – backsides which have moved us these past few days.”
The controversial move by the tabloid is likely to spark another privacy row between Buckingham Palace and the European media.
It comes less than two years after the royal couple sued French magazine Closer for running topless photographs of the Duchess, taken as the couple holidayed at a chateau in the Provence region.
The Palace labelled the publication of the images a “grotesque” invasion of privacy.
