Royal expert shares tragic verdict on Kate Middleton – accusing palace of not protecting her

Kate Middleton has been cited for publishing the manipulated picture of her and her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, on Mother’s Day.

News agencies decided to remove the image as it was proven to have been edited, and many were angry with the Princess of Wales, not only because of the picture but also because she and the palace have neither refused to comment on her health nor publish a new image that could end speculations about her well-being.

While some have criticized her recent decision, some days after the picture was published, several royal experts have come to her rescue, accusing not her but the palace and her husband of not doing enough.

The royal family has come under fire after the manipulated picture of Kate Middleton and her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, was published on Mother’s Day on the Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Instagram account.

News agency director says Palace isn’t a trusted source after Kate Middleton picture blunder
It took a few hours before photography experts and social media users began analyzing the picture, finding several errors and examples of bad editing. Several news agencies, including the Associated Press and Getty, sent a “kill notice” (an advisory notice to remove or not use a specific photo).

Another news agency that used a “kill notice” was the well-renowned Agence France-Presse (AFP). Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Media Show, Phil Chetwynd, AFP’s global news director, said that Kensington Palace is no longer a trusted source.

He concluded, “One thing that’s really important is you cannot be distorting reality for the public. There’s a question of trust. And the big issue here is one of trust, and the lack of trust and the falling trust of the general public in institutions generally and in the media. And so it’s extremely important that a photo does represent broadly the reality that it’s seen in.”
