Brits making same request to Royal Family after Kate Middleton admitted to editing Mother's Day photo

Brits making same request to Royal Family after Kate Middleton admitted to editing Mother's Day photo

Brits are making one demand of the Royals after the controversy

Brits are making the same request to the Royal Family following the controversy surrounding an 'edited' photograph of the Princess of Wales and her children.

After weeks of speculation on her whereabouts, Kate Middleton tried to put the rumours to rest with a photo op for Mother's Day.

The lovely photograph showed the Princess of Wales sitting with her three children - George, Charlotte and Louis.

The picture contained a message for the country: "Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months.

"Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day. C."

However, eagle eyed social media users spotted a few editing errors in the picture and called foul on the image, with many coming up with conspiracies behind the reasoning for the edits and putting blame on the Royal Family.

Things heated up even more when multiple international picture agencies sent out a 'kill notification' due to the photograph being 'manipulated'.

Now, Kate has admitted that the picture had, indeed, been tweaked.

In a statement released to social media today (March 11), she said: "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing.

"I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day. C."

And now, Brits are demanding that one thing be done.

Piers Morgan led the cry, as he took to X to make a demand of the Royal Family.

The broadcaster tweeted: "The Palace should release the unedited photo of Kate & the kids asap. If it’s just a small bit of harmless retouching gone wrong, nobody will care.

"If they don’t release the original pic, the conspiracy theories they were trying to kill, will get way worse.."

Another social media user wrote: "Release the original immediately."

These sentiments were echoed in another post: "So post the original, unedited photo? Or does it not exist?"

On Sunday, Kensington Palace posted the first picture of Kate Middleton since her 'planned abdominal surgery' back in January.

The Princess of Wales has been absent from Royal duties and the public for several weeks, leading to the creation of many conspiracy theories regarding her whereabouts.

Kate went to the London Clinic for a planned operation on 16 January, and returned home to Windsor on 29 January.

She attended the same hospital where King Charles received treatment for an enlarged prostate prior to his cancer diagnosis.

However, rumours began swirling online about Kate's whereabouts after she took a break from Royal engagements and public appearances to recover, leading to Kensington Palace to slam the 'madness of social media'.

At the time, a statement was released by Kate's representatives saying her abdominal surgery was successful and she was expected to remain in hospital for up to two weeks before continuing her recovery at home.
