The 30-year-old's Erdem number whipped up to expose her thigh, but fortunately she grabbed it in time to ensure her royal behind didn't become as much of a talking point as her breasts.

Unfortunately after their hectic time abroad, the couple won't be able to relax once they get home.

Instead they will continue to fight their case against French Closer magazine after they won an injunction to stop them printing further images of poor Kate.

The royals want to bring criminal charges against the photographer and are awaiting a decision from France's prosecutors.

Wills and Kate are claiming a gross invasion of privacy when the snaps were taken of them on holiday relaxing by the pool at a sprawling estate in Provence.

The photos show the royal couple relaxing by the pool, with Kate seemingly rubbing lotion into Wills' back, her breasts on full show.
