The agency claims that a photo of Prince William and Kate Middleton together in a car was not “doctored.”

A photo agency is adamant that the latest image of Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton together was not edited, despite what internet sleuths have claimed.
The company that released the photo, Goff Photos, responded to the claims that it was Photoshopped in a statement to E! News on Tuesday, March 12. They stated that although the images had been “lightened” and “cropped,” they had not been “doctored.”

On Monday, March 11, Kate, 42, was sighted for the second time following her stomach surgery. The Daily Mail released a picture of William, 41, and his spouse as they left Windsor Castle. Kate looked out the window across from the camera, but her face was still clearly visible. (The publication claims that she was going to a private appointment while he was attending a Commonwealth Day celebration.)

Some social media users conjectured that the image had been altered as it circulated online, drawing comparisons between the hues of the bricks above the automobile and those seen through the window. Some individuals even expressed suspicions that Kate wasn’t the woman standing next to William.

Following a “planned” surgical procedure, Kate was admitted to the hospital, as reported by Kensington Palace in January. According to a statement at the time, “The surgery was successful, and it is expected that she will remain in hospital for ten to fourteen days, before returning home to continue her recovery.” “It seems unlikely that she will resume her public duties until after Easter, based on the current medical advice.”

Throughout her recuperation, Kate will be canceling her obligations, according to the palace, and updates will only be given “when there is significant new information to share.”

The last time Kate was seen before her operation was in December 2023. When she reappeared earlier this month, Carole Middleton, her mother, was pictured with her in the passenger seat of a vehicle.

Because of the palace’s lack of transparency, there has been much speculation on the princess’s well-being. However, representatives for both Kate and William have made an effort to quell the conversation on social media.

A representative for Kate stated in a statement released on February 29 that “Kensington Palace made it clear in January the timelines of the princess’ recovery and we’d only be providing significant updates.” “That advice is still valid.”

William’s representative claimed a few weeks later that the future king is “focused in on work and not on social media.”

But since then, the dispute has only gotten more heated. On Sunday, March 10, a family portrait that was posted on social media in observance of Mother’s Day drew a lot of scrutiny. Not only does Kate not appear to be wearing her wedding ring in the allegedly William-taken shot, but multiple foreign news outlets were issued a “kill” notice directing them to delete the image from all platforms due to the source’s “manipulation.”

After a day, Kate responded to the accusations. “Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing,” the Prince and Princess of Wales’ official account posted on Monday. It was an X post. “I wanted to apologize for any misunderstanding that may have arisen from the family photo we published yesterday. I sincerely hope that Mother’s Day was enjoyed by all who participated.

A source provided insight on Kate’s approach to the scandal in Us Weekly’s most recent cover article. “William is attempting to protect her, but she’s finding it difficult to ignore all of the rumors and gossip,” the insider stated.
