First Kate Middleton picture in 76 days withdrawn after alarming details spotted

Kensington Palace released the first photo of the Princess of Wales on Mother’s Day following her planned abdominal surgery in January – but some are saying it’s been photoshopped

The first image of Kate Middleton after her planned abdominal surgery has been pulled by major news agencies following claims it has been manipulated.

The image, which was taken by Prince William, showed Kate sitting on a chair in the garden with her arms around the young royals – all of them beaming.

However, hours after the official image was released, picture agencies like Reuters, Getty Images, Associated Press and AFP quickly removed the photo after issuing a ‘kill notice,’ which also asked all clients to remove it from their platforms.

AP said: “At closer inspection it appears that the source has manipulated the image. Clients please be advised that the following story has been killed and should no longer be used.”

Kensington Palace did not give a response when asked if the image had been edited.

Some of the editing errors that have been identified include Kate’s missing wedding ring, her blurred hair and right hand, and her jacket zipper not lining up. Plus, Princess Charlotte’s wrist and sleeve of her jumper also not lining up, suggesting it may have been artificially manipulated.
