Second photo of Royal Family confirmed to be altered after Kate Middleton Photoshop admission

Second photo of Royal Family confirmed to be altered after Kate Middleton Photoshop admission

'Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing', the Princess of Wales said

Following on from weeks of speculation about Kate Middleton’s health, the Princess of Wales was spotted at a farm shop in Windsor.

You might think that would be enough to put an end to the seemingly never-ending spiral of strange occurrences - but you’d be wrong.

After that digitally altered Mother’s Day photo sent shockwaves around the globe, it has emerged that it’s not the only picture to have been photoshopped.

Getty Images have declared that a photo taken by Kate in Balmoral, August 2022, was digitally altered.

The picture shows the late Queen surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

This is the second photo that has been taken by Kate Middleton, and digitally altered.

It was released in April last year to celebrate what would have been the Queen’s 97th birthday.

A spokesperson for Getty said: “Getty Images has reviewed the image in question and placed an editor’s note on it, stating that the image has been digitally enhanced at source.”

Following the Mother’s Day debacle, the Princess of Wales made a now infamous statement which included: “Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing.”

The photo caused many global agencies to issue a rare ‘kill notice’ and it was withdrawn from use.

As the photo of the Queen was purported to have been taken by Kate, it seems safe to assume that the Princess is also responsible for this bout of bad editing too.

Kate's Mother's Day photo.

Close inspection of the photograph shows a number of strange inconsistencies, including the tartan pattern of the Queen’s skirt not matching, intense dark shadows behind Prince Louis’ ear, and signs that Mia Tindall’s (the Queen's great-granddaughter) hair has been digitally altered.

There are also several parts of the green couch which appear to have been edited, and there are black shadows behind Prince George’s shirt collar.

This revelation is likely to attract more unwanted attention to the Princess of Wales, who has been recovering from abdominal surgery and largely avoiding public view.

Following Kate’s absence from public duties following her abdominal surgery, it is expected that her next public engagement will be during the Easter period.

Whether or not the Princess will continue experimenting with editing remains to be seen.
