Kate Middleton's uncle shares theory on why niece's Mother's Day photo looks photoshopped

Gary Goldsmith spoke about the image of the Princess of Wales on ITV's Good Morning Britain

Freshly evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house, Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith has given his thoughts on the apparently doctored photo released by the Princess of Wales alongside her three children.

Kate released the photo on the official Kensington Palace X account on Sunday (10 March) to mark Mother's Day, showing her sat down with her three kids - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis - stood around her.

It follows on from social media rumours as to her whereabouts as she continues to recover from abdominal surgery that took place in January.

But despite everyone showing gleaming smiles to mark the day of celebration for mums everywhere, the image itself has been 'killed' by three global photo agencies following allegations of manipulation.

In the post on X (formerly Twitter), Kate wrote: "Thank you for your kind wishes and continued support over the last two months. Wishing everyone a Happy Mother's Day. C."

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

Kensington Palace have issued a 'no comment' response when asked by ITV regarding allegations of the image being doctored, the broadcaster's royal editor Chris Ship posted on X.

LADbible has also contacted Kensington Palace for comment.

Social media has been full of commentary on the photo, with some pointing out what they call 'strange details' in the image.

Withdrawing the image, Reuters said: "Withdrawn following a post publication review Please make no further use."

Associated Press issued a 'kill notification, saying: "At closer inspection it appears that the source has manipulated the image. No replacement photo will be sent."

Appearing on ITV's Good Morning Britain today (11 March), Kate's uncle was quizzed on his time in the CBB house.

But conversation naturally turned to the photo given how much of a talking point it has been.

Speaking to Goldsmith, presenter Susanna Reid said: "Does anything about it strike you as odd or were you as reassured as everyone was supposed to be? The purpose of the photograph was to show her health, happy, and smiling with her children."

Responding Goldsmith said his initial reaction was like most of us, before offering his own explanation for what might have occurred after the photo was taken by Prince William.

"The smiles and faces said it all for me, I thought it was beautiful," Goldsmith said. "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."

Gary also revealed that he hadn't personally spoken to Kate for 'maybe a year'.

After being asked by Reid on the last time they chatted, he said: "I haven't spoken to her for ages... maybe a year?"

He said that its 'unfortunately' more likely to see her at occasions such as family funerals and that he sees his other niece and Kate's sister, Pippa, more often.
