Kate Middleton Faces Backlash Again Over Alleged Editing of Another Photo

In a déjà vu moment for the Royal Family, Kate Middleton finds herself at the center of controversy once more, with fresh allegations of photo manipulation surfacing just a week after her Mother’s Day photo sparked uproar.

The latest controversy surrounds another photo, this time a family picture released by Buckingham Palace on April 21 last year to commemorate what would have been the late Queen’s 97th birthday. Getty Images, after reviewing the image, appended an editor’s note stating that it had been digitally enhanced at the source, raising doubts about its authenticity.

The photo, captured by Kate during a family outing to Balmoral, depicts several members of the Royal Family seated together, including William and Kate’s children alongside their royal cousins. However, media outlets have identified “several inconsistencies” in the image, zooming in on six distinct discrepancies, fueling suspicions of editing.

This revelation comes in the wake of the Mother’s Day photo controversy, where Kate Middleton faced criticism for allegedly manipulating the image, prompting top photo agencies such as AP, AFP, Reuters, and Getty Images to issue a ‘kill’ notice, denoting manipulation at the source.

Princess Kate swiftly issued an apology for the confusion caused by the Mother’s Day photo, attributing the incident to her occasional experimentation with editing as an amateur photographer. However, the apology did little to shield the Royal Family from renewed scrutiny over their past photographic representations.
