Kate Middleton and Prince William’s friends ‘shocked’ over detail in manipulated Mother’s Day picture

It has been a week since Kate Middleton—along with the monarchy—was trapped in a powerful storm. News organizations chose to take down the heavily manipulated Mother’s Day photo that the Princess of Wales had shared on social media. Kensington Palace doesn’t seem to want to share any details or images of the future queen, which makes the mystery surrounding Kate more perplexing by the moment.

There were multiple serious flaws in the Mother’s Day photo that was modified and shared last Sunday. Many royal enthusiasts and specialists have been perplexed by one of them, which featured Kate Middleton without her wedding ring. Conspiracy theories persist despite the fact that the photo has been altered, which may indicate that the ring has been removed.

Conspiracy theories are primarily debated and shared online, but they have also reached the acquaintances of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The friends of the Prince and Princess of Wales are apparently astonished by the latest development, despite the fact that the palace has not verified, denied, or even remarked on anything regarding the future king and queen’s relationship.

It was discovered that Kate Middleton’s Mother’s Day photo had been altered. Royal fans and experts were incensed by this, and the princess issued an apology the day after it was published.

Like a lot of amateur photographers, I do sometimes dabble in editing. I wanted to apologize for any misunderstanding that may have arisen from our sharing of the family photo yesterday. I sincerely hope that Mother’s Day was enjoyed by all who participated. C,” Kate said in a social media message shared by the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Kate Middleton altered the Mother’s Day photo

It took several hours for social media users and photography professionals to analyze the photo, pointing out several mistakes and poor retouching techniques.

The Associated Press and Getty were among the news organizations who sent out “kill notices,” which are advising notices to remove or not use a certain photo.

Renowned news organization Agence France-Presse (AFP) was another to use a “kill notice.” The worldwide news director of AFP, Phil Chetwynd, stated that Kensington Palace is no longer a reliable source while appearing on BBC Radio 4’s Media Show.

“No, not at all. The bar gets increased when you’re let down by a source, just like with anything else. According to Deadline, he stated, “We sent out notes to all our teams to be absolutely super more vigilant about the content coming across our desk — even from what we would call trusted sources.”

Chetwynd went on to say that on Sunday, a number of news outlets enquired as to whether Kensington Palace could supply the original image. He claims, though, that the picture was removed because the agencies did not receive a response.

Furthermore, according to Chetwynd, sources like North Korea are typically the targets of kill notices.

It is uncommon to kill something by manipulation. We might do it once a year, maybe less. The Iranian or North Korean news agencies were the sources of our prior kills, Chetwynd continued.

Kate posted the picture to the Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Instagram account more than a week ago. Since Instagram opted to add a “altered photo” note to Kate Middleton’s manipulated Mother’s Day photo, in addition to news outlets issuing a “kill notice.”

There’s a notice behind the Instagram post: “Altered photo/video. Independent fact-checkers examined the identical changed photo in a different post.

The purported “affair” between Prince William and Rose Hanbury

Following the removal of the edited photo from news agencies’ websites and the decision by news agency AFP to no longer accept Kensington Palace as a source, people on social media have not stopped speculating about Kate Middleton’s whereabouts.

On Mother’s Day, Kate shared a photo that had been altered and included other editing errors. The fact that Kate Middleton chose not to wear her wedding ring, however, alarmed many because it suggested that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s union would permanently alter the royal family’s future.

Not least due to the five years ago rumors that first surfaced.

First and foremost, it is crucial to emphasize that no information has been verified. The American magazine In Touch Magazine claimed in April 2019 that William “may” have had an affair with Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley and Kate’s friend.

William, Kate, and Rose had a “falling out,” which was covered by tabloids. According to an article in In Touch, Kate had shown the reports to William, who had “laughed it off,” claiming that the accusations were untrue.

Richard Kay, a royal specialist for The Daily Mail, refuted the reports at the time, claiming they were all false information.

“All sides have thought about taking legal action, but they have decided to disregard it because none of the stories have been able to provide any proof as to what the alleged conflict is about. “These false and hurtful rumors about a fallout are untrue,” wrote Kay.
