Katie Price has dished out some unlikely advice to Kate Middleton after revealing photos of the Duchess of Cambrige were published by a German newspaper.

No stranger to controversy herself, the outspoken former glamour model reached out to the royal in her latest column for Now magazine.

In May photographs of the Duchess were published in tabloid newspaper Bild. The pictures were taken during Kate's recent tour of Australia, when a gust of wind lifted her dress as she was boarding a helicopter.

Price has advised that the royal should wear longer gowns in public to avoid future embarrassing pictures being taken.

She wrote: "The only way she can guarantee these sorts of pics aren't repeated is to stay covered up and wear a hemline with weights in!"

she also spoke about the pressures of being a royal, adding: "The problem for Kate is she's married to the second in line to the throne and is one of the most photographed women in the world. Photos of her will be commercially attractive, so people will always try to get a shot they can sell."

In 2012 Kate and her husband Prince William took legal action against a French magazine for publishing topless pictures of her on holiday.
