Duchess Kate bodyguard: Bare bum photo prompts bodyguard, 'watched all the time'

Duchess Kate Middleton has hired a bodyguard to apparently guard her behind in the hopes of preventing any more wardrobe malfunction scandals like the bare bum photo late this May 2014. After the Duchess of Cambridge was recently photographed with an upskirt photo that showed her naked butt — the picture was published in a popular German magazine — the royal family must have decided that this “protector” of Kate Middleton’s behind must be added to her usual security getup. Entertainmentwise adds this Monday, June 2, that a source alleged “Kate will now be watched all the time” in order to prevent any future embarrassing photos.

While the royal family already has tight security when they are out and about, a Duchess Kate bodyguard is now apparently being put into place to prevent any more unwanted snapshots. A story earlier this week went viral after it was revealed a bare bum photo had been taken of Kate Middleton in Australia. When a helicopter came to close, a strong gust of wind blew her skirt up, revealing her naked behind. Once published in the German magazine (and later an Australian tabloid), the picture was everywhere.

It seems this bodyguard will now act as a butt monitor or bum “minder” of sorts, adds the Christian Post in their coverage. While this latest incident hasn’t been the first time Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has had a private area exposed by the press, it seems officials at the royal palace intend for it to be the last.

So what prompted this minder of the derriere? According to an inside source, this bodyguard for Duchess Kate will stay behind her at all times in order to prevent any photo scandal like the bare bum fiasco from occurring — simply by blocking off any camera angles that could be taken advantage of by the paparazzi themselves.

“Kate will now be watched all the time. We can’t afford any more embarrassing photos like this,” noted the insider. “The poor girl was snapped topless in France while on holiday and now someone has got a photo of her bottom. She needs more protection to spare her blushes.”

Finally, with the increasing surge of camera phones and people having picture capabilities on the go, it seems that a Duchess Kate bodyguard for her royal behind isn’t that strange after all. Security matters, however, won’t be discussed by any palace spokespeople due to them being private affairs.
