Queen Elizabeth is upset with Kate Middleton over a wardrobe malfunction, according to new reports.
Kate recently appeared in public for the first time in over a month to welcome the president of Singapore to the United Kingdom.
While outside with her husband Prince William waiting for the president and his wife, Kate’s dress was caught by the wind and hitched up a bit.
Pictures show a glimpse of Kate’s underwear.
Reports suggest that Queen Elizabeth is upset over the malfunction, although it’s unclear what the origin of the reports are.
“British tabloids are reporting that an anonymous source claims both the Queen and Camilla Parker-Bowles spoke with Kate afterward about being more careful in her wardrobe selections,” reported The Hollywood Gossip.
And gossip website Celeb Dirty Laundry said that “it’s not shocking to hear that neither Queen Elizabeth nor Camilla Parker-Bowles are happy about Kate’s billionth wardrobe malfunction” without citing a source.
“The Queen is probably furious, Camilla is probably running around and [complaining] about Kate to everyone who will listen, and Kate is once again in the hot seat for all the wrong reasons,” it added.
While it’s not confirmed that the latest malfunction–which was not nearly as bad as some of the previous ones–upset the queen, she has voiced displeasure with Kate’s wardrobe in the past.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this year that Kate would start wearing longer dressed than she had previously favored, in a makeover supported by the Queen.
“The frilled, girlish frocks she likes have been outlawed in case they detract from the newly grown-up image she needs to project and also to prevent any wardrobe malfunctions – such as that at Calgary airport in Canada in 2011 when a gust of wind caught the skirt of the Duchess’s short yellow dress and flashed her underwear to the world,” the report noted.
The Queen even had the most trusted member of her staff, personal dresser Angela Kelly, help Kate prepare for the first trip to incorporate the changes.
“This forms part of a deliberate move to shift the Duchess’s image from High Street to high end, timeless Royal elegance – without losing her freshness and informality.”
