It has been revealed tonight that a shocking photo that Kate Middleton never wanted anyone to see has been sold to a top London Red Top Newspaper Editor.
The photo is said to have been poached from the Facebook page of a "friend" and is thought to have changed hands for half a million pounds.
Nobody knows what the photo reveals, but last night Miss Middleton's friends said she was willing to pay the newspaper double what they paid the photographer in order to get the photo back.
Professor David Bailley from the London Photo Institute says that Kate is a modern day victim of the internet's obsession with photographs, especially embarrassing ones of seeming unembarrassable people.
But Professor Bailley expects that this won't be the last photo of this kind to surface. He has been reliably informed that David Cameron's sacked photographer will be posting embarrassing photos of David next week on an internet site called - Sweet Revenge.
The sight was set up last month by a mystery man called Mr G Brown, and so far contains embarrassing photos of Tony Blair, David Miliband and Margaret Thatcher.
Its a site I'm sure will be visited by many, just to see if they've been embarrassed lately without realising. Because that's the tragic thing about embarrassing photos, most of them are taken whilst drunk at Tory Party Conferences in Brighton and everyone forgets about them until...OMG - its on the internet.
Katarina Frogpond (that's me) will be visiting the site purely for professional purposes. She does not believe she will be featured... but, of course, she can't be entirely certain....no one is safe.
