Kate Middleton's privacy: What constitutes as an invasion?

KateMiddletonWardrobeMalfunctionSkirt-678x1024 Poor Kate Middleton is in the news again for all the wrong reasons. A photographer is trying to sell a photo of her bare bum after her skirt flew up while she was disembarking from a helicopter during the royal tour of Australia. Of course this has sparked lots of discussion over whether this new photo constitutes as an invasion of privacy. The problem with being a public persona is that nothing is really considered private, everything you do is open to being photographed or talked about, as Prince Charles learned the hard way last week. So is the photo an invasion of her privacy? No, Kate was on a public tour. But should the photo be made public? Absolutely not. We all have wardrobe malfunctions, ahem Anne Hathaway. But you hope that the people around you have enough decency not to snap a photo of your bare derriere and share it with the world. That's disgusting and incredibly crude. Have a little common decency and understand that this poor woman is having a vulnerable moment and you shouldn't be taking advantage of that so you can get a big pay day. How would you like it if someone posted your wife, sister or mom's bum all around the internet? I think what it comes down to is that the royals don't have a right to privacy because they're public figures. But that doesn't mean journalists and photographers should take advantage of them. If you see Kate sunbathing topless, you should have the respect not to take a photo. End of story. What do you think? Photo courtesy of Keystone Press
