Brits think there's still one unanswered question after Kate Middleton admitted to editing Mother's Day photo

Brits think there's still one unanswered question after Kate Middleton admitted to editing Mother's Day photo

The photo has led to more confusion and disarray

Despite Kate Middleton admitting to editing that Mother's Day photo, Brits still have more questions than answers to the ongoing saga.

The Princess of Wales put out a sweet photograph of her with her three children - George, Charlotte and Louis - to commemorate the holiday.

It came after weeks of speculation regarding her whereabouts after the Palace announced that she would be taking a break from Royal engagements following surgery in January.

When rumours began emerging on social media regarding Kate's wellbeing after weeks of not being seen or heard from, her reps were forced to issue a statement confirming the Royal was 'doing well'.

Well, last week Kate finally broke her silence by posting a Mother's Day portrait on X.

Alongside the photo, Kate wrote: "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 followers began spotting small editing errors in the picture, such as Charlotte's sleeve appearing transparent.

The buzz around the picture further fuelled the conspiracy theories which had been spreading online in Kate's absence.

This lead to Kate releasing a second statement to social media today, in which she admitted that the image had been edited.

She wrote: "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."

Although this statement was likely intended to quell any concerns, it doesn't appear to have settled anything as Brits are now asking about one detail in the photo that hasn't been accounted for.

One person tweeted: "Sure. Just a few questions:

"1. why did you feel the need to experiment?

"2. Where’s your wedding ring?

"3. Why, in the process of experimenting, did you give yourself an Adam‘s apple?

"4. #WhereIsKateMiddleton?

"Asking for a nation."

Another commented: "So why did she edit out her wedding ring then?"

"Where's your wedding ring?" another enquired.

Unfortunately for Kate and the Royal Family, this photo has opened up a whole other can of worms.

It's not just the public commenting on the image, as Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith has shared his thoughts.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain after leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house, he said: "The smiles and faces said it all for me, I thought it was beautiful.

"Obviously the family wouldn't be the ones to do any touch ups, so if that's gone through some filter before it's gone out to the broader world then they would be shocked in themselves.

"But all I was looking at was the faces, the smiles, and all that it looked like the beautiful family that they are. And it looked really genuine with the smiles on faces."
