Is Kate, Princess of Wales, fully to blame for the Photoshop image disaster of Sunday, March 10?

That is the question numerous royal analysts are asking, with one royal author, Rob Jobson, telling an outlet that Kate has "probably been let down, in my opinion" by her team of advisors at Kensington Palace, which is her and Prince William's official royal base of operations.

Princess Kate released an edited image on U.K. Mother's Day 2024.

When speaking of the "slew" of palace advisors to the heir to the throne and his consort, Jobson added: "Now it hasn't passed that muster, if you like, and that's because it was pretty much an amateur job on doing so. So really, there needed to be some advisers around doing that job, making sure that in this modern world of communications, you cannot tamper with photographs that are being issued as official photographs."

He continued: "It damages the integrity of the organization that is issuing a photograph."

The author then claimed that the future queen had done the palace a favor by taking the blame.

Some royal insiders have also pointed out how the Prince of Wales "made a mistake in judgment" by remaining silent "since he is the one who took the picture in the first place."

The Princess of Wales is still recovering from an abdominal surgery she had on January 16, 2024.

The scribe pointed out how "royal editing of pictures" is essentially part of the aesthetic of monarchy, adding how Buckingham Palace ordered edits to a 1999 picture taken at Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex's wedding, in which a 17-year-old Prince William "looked dour". The editing of the image turned his frown into a smile.

Even though there is a "firestorm of conspiracies and controversy" about the image online, Jobson claims that Brits, in particular, will largely chuckle at the drama surrounding the picture.

"She's done her best to try and get a photograph out of her and her kids, looking really quite happy and healthy," he concluded.

'#Where'sKate' has been trending online in recent weeks.

Her Royal Highness was also spotted next to her husband in his royal motorcade after he attended the 2024 Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. The future queen looked away from cameras as she was spotted in the back passenger seat en route to "an appointment." King Charles III was unable to attend the annual service due to his ongoing treatments for an undisclosed form of cancer.

He instead released a prerecorded video of himself and stated: "Having recently celebrated my own 75th birthday, it warms my heart to reflect on the way the Commonwealth has been a constant throughout my own life — a precious source of strength, inspiration, and pride. In recent weeks, I have been most deeply touched by your wonderfully kind and thoughtful good wishes for my health and, in return, can only continue to serve you, to the best of my ability, throughout the Commonwealth."
