A German tabloid has published a photo of Kate Middleton's butt, nearly shutting down the Internet in Europe and renewing debate over the royal family's privacy.

Taken as her skirt blew up while she and Prince William were in Australia, the image taken from a great distance away shows her bare derriere.

Which is absolutely exquisite, but that's not the point.

Bild (dot) de described the upskirt pic of gorgeous Middleton as such: "Photos show our favourite Duchess Kate, 32, in the Australian Blue Mountains."

"The rotor blades of the royal helicopter swirl the air so that [Kate Middleton]'s summer dress blew up, giving a clear view of her beautiful bum!"

The now infamous bum photo, which we're not publishing here, was first offered to UK tabloids, who refused it. Then it was sold to the highest bidder.

Bild (dot) de posted the shot of Kate's toned, perky backside right next to pics of Kim Kardsahian and Khloe Kardashian's infamous behinds.

Which is just wrong for several reasons:

Former News of the World editor Clive Goodman hacked Kate Middleton's phone 155 times beginning in 2005, according to a shocking new report.

Goodman, one of seven defendants on trial for the paper's phone hacking scandal, also hacked Prince William 35 times and Prince Harry on nine occasions.

He returned to the trial to resume giving evidence after an extended period away due to illness, and made it worth the wait for celebrity gossip enthusiasts.

Goodman says he hacked Kate Middleton on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day in 2005, and in August 2006, the day before he got arrested.

Prince William's voicemail was first intercepted in January 2006, a little more than five years before he and Kate tied the knot in April 2011's royal wedding.

Goodman denied he had "forgotten" about targeting the royals when he said earlier in the trial that he had only hacked aides working for the royals.

The Kate Middleton photo scandal has come roaring back with the publication of even more (and clearer) images in Scandinavian gossip magazine Se og Hør this week.

The magazine's editor quickly defended the move.

Kate Middleton Picture

"We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them," Kim Henningsen said of the Kate Middleton topless (and bottomless) images.

Taken with a long lens, the images - basically the same as the ones published previously in French and Irish magazines - show Kate in a bikini ... and then not in a bikini.

A rep for the royals declined comment, saying, "Our stance is the same as before - we aren't commenting save to say all proportionate legal responses will be kept under review."
