Kate Middleton 'may not' post a photo again after scandal: expert


Kate Middleton's “amateur” photography may be behind it.

The Princess of Wales, 42, is said to be too self-conscious to post any more photos after her Photoshop fail.

In honor of Mother's Day in the UK on Sunday, Middleton shared a photo of herself smiling with her children, Prince George, 10, Prince Louis, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 8. This was the first snapshot published by the future queen while she continues to remain out of the public eye while recovering from abdominal surgery she underwent in January.

The photo was riddled with numerous editing errors – with several photo agencies such as the Associated Press retracting the photo and urging the media not to use it because it had been “manipulated.”

The agencies even asked Kensington Palace to send them an unedited version of the drawing, but they refused.

Expert Russell Myers gave some insight into the Duchess of Cambridge's position on sharing photos in the future Royal Beat Podcast.

“They posted the photo and I think they will have to review that process,” he said.

“What I think would be the biggest shame of all is that Kate may never pose for a photo again,” he continued.

“We spent years posting pictures of the kids on their birthday, on Louis' first day at school, and in their Christmas card. If she didn't, that's a huge shame on her.”

However, Prince William, 41, praised Middleton's photography skills during a visit to the West Youth Zone charity facility in London on Thursday, noting that she was the “arty” one in the family.

He appeared on BBC Radio 4's “Media Show” and stated that the palace was “completely untrustworthy”.

“As with anything, when a source lets you down, the bar is raised,” he explained.

“You can't distort reality for the public,” Chetwynd said. “There is an issue of trust. The big issue here is the issue of trust, the lack of trust and the general public’s declining trust in institutions in general and in the media.”
