Kate, Princess of Wales has been "thrown under the bus" by her and Prince William's team of advisors at Kensington Palace. The future courtiers have been labeled as "disgraceful" due to apparently allowing the future queen to take to social media and "fully take the blame" for the now-infamous Mother's Day photoshop disaster.

Prince William's Mother's Day image of his family, which was pulled by numerous news agencies.

"I'm just so sad and sort of frustrated about the whole thing because I feel so sorry for Catherine," royal expert Richard Eden dished. "Essentially, she's been under so much pressure from people saying 'We want a photo, we want to know how she is, tell us how she is'. And she finally issues this photograph, it's taken by Prince William — they make that clear when they issue the photograph."

He continued: "It's not some personal thing, it's issued by Kensington Palace communications people and then she has been thrown under a bus. The officials made it public. They gave it out, it's their job. I think it's absolutely disgraceful that they've said to her 'You go and explain what you did.' No, it's your job. Take some responsibility."

Catherine, Princess of Wales, had a major abdominal surgery on January 16, 2024.

The future queen released a photograph on Sunday, March 10, that featured herself, and her three children, Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte. A huge controversy arose sometime later when major media outlets such as the Associated Press and Reuters recalled the image due to suspicious alterations found within it. The snap was taken by Prince William and is the first clear image of the princess since Christmas Day 2023.

Scouts on social media noticed a litany of editing mishaps, with Charlotte's hands being called out as "clearly cut and paste" from previous images. Conspiracies even arose that the photo of the Princess of Wales was an old image from when she appeared in a magazine years ago.

Kate issued an apology for altering the image on her and William's social media accounts, which is a rare thing for a senior, British royal to do. Monarchy traditionalists quickly scolded Her Royal Highness for "playing to the gallery," which is one of the distinctions of royalty in that no response "kills the sensationalism," according to a palace insider.

Princess Kate reportedly 'refused' to release the original, unedited Mother's Day 2024 image.

Web sleuths and even professional photographers have examined the photograph and found "numerous inconsistencies," such as Charlotte's "odd clothing patterns" and late spring/summer foliage in the background despite it being late winter. Many have also questioned whether the future queen is "truly in the image at all."

"It wouldn't surprise me if heads do roll over this, if not now... then eventually. Heads could roll, heads have rolled for lesser offenses I've seen over the years," Eden ominously concluded.
