Bottoms up, but Kate is taking no chances with gusty squalls

Kate Middleton was taking no chances with the unpredictable wind yesterday when she arrived dressed to see off the blustery weather in Scotland.
She wore a knee-length coral-and-red-striped coat by Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders over a red dress by Goat.
She also wore beige heels and a Celtic broach, which was given to her as a wedding present.
It appeared she may even have had small lead weights sewn into the hem of her coat to stop it blowing up.
Her appearance comes after a German tabloid published pictures of the Duchess's bottom, taken when a gust of wind briefly caught her dress in Australia last month.
Kate was in Scotland with her husband, Prince William, on their first joint engagement since returning from Australia and New Zealand.
The Duke and Duchess began their day at Strathearn Community Campus in Crieff, where they met young carers, Scouts, Cadets and Brownies.
They also met representatives of the Scottish Air Ambulance as the Prince is considering taking a role as an air ambulance pilot in Norfolk.
Later, the pair toured a whisky distillery, where they bottled their own Glenturret malt at Scotland's oldest distillery, near Crieff in Perthshire.
