Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is waking up to more bad news after a second newspaper published the now infamous picture of her bare bottom.

Following German tabloid Bild, the Sydney Daily Telegraph - owned by The Times proprietor Rupert Murdoch - has printed the images alongside a comment piece criticising censorship of the imagery to protect the Duchess' privacy.

The picture revealing Kate's behind was taken while she and Prince William were posing for press during the recent royal tour in Australia.

A gust of wind caused by a nearby helicopter blew up the Duchess' blue and white Diane von Furstenberg dress and waiting paparazzi were quick to capture the moment.

Opinion has been divided over whether the imagery should be in the public eye but despite debate, a British newspaper, magazine or website has yet to follow Bild's lead.

The tabloid published the image earlier this week with the caption: "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's summer dress blew up – giving a clear view of her beautiful bum!"

Meanwhile, the article headline read: "Clothes ban for Kate?"

This is the second photo-related scandal the mother-of-one has faced since officially joining the royal family in 2011.

While on holiday in Provence Chateaux in 2012, the Duchess was snapped topless and the pictures published in the French edition of Closer magazine.

Commenting at the time of this first scandal, Clarence House said: "This is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the paparazzi during Diana's life and the more upsetting to the duke and duchess for being so."
