In the wake of Kate, Princess of Wales' Mother's Day photoshop disaster, all Meghan Markle and Prince Harry likely have to do is "keep a dignified silence."

"They release a statement that would say all people can make mistakes in their lives, but they wish a speedy recovery for the Princess of Wales," royal commentator Ian Pelham Turner told an outlet.

"Meghan and Harry may use the situation to support their claims while they feel sympathy," he added. "It recognizes as well that not all is what it seems in the House of Windsor."

"Most photos are edited before they reach the public, especially in terms of lighting and coloring," PR expert Lynn Carratt dished when mentioning the Duchess of Sussex's photoshopped pics. "Meghan herself has previously been accused of editing the official press pictures."

The PR expert then highlighted Meghan and Prince Harry's 2019 Christmas photo with Prince Archie since "fans thought that the adorable photo of the couple with their eldest son may have been edited because Meghan's face was in sharp focus, despite the fact she was in the back of the photo."

She concluded by pointing out that "Meghan will always get knocked more than Kate for whatever she does as the British public certainly are team Kate."

The former 'fab four' have not spoken since September 2022.

"We'll probably never know whether Harry and Meghan got a twinge of pleasure from Kate's blushes," PR executive Jack Izzard dished. "But what they should definitely get out of the Kensington Palace cock-up is a PR opportunity."

On Sunday, March 10, the Princess of Wales released an image of herself surrounded by her three children that led to internet sleuths pointing out "heavily edited" inconsistencies in the pic. In what many royal traditionalists are calling "media hysteria manipulation," major news agencies issued "kill orders" on the image due to the photoshopping.

Izzard continued: "A supportive word here, a gentle nod towards the importance of Kate’s privacy there — this is a chance to offer a subtle olive branch to the Cambridges. And done right, it can be totally in tune with one of the Sussexes' favorite themes — a call for the conspiracy theorists and keyboard warriors to lay off."

The Princess of Wales had abdominal surgery on January 16.

Amid the controversy surrounding the picture and Her Royal Highness' firm commitment not to return to the public stage until sometime in April, some point to Harry and Meghan in comparison.

"Having a photoshopped photograph is absolutely nothing about telling lies," royal expert Angela Levin told an outlet. "The most important thing is that you can trust people, and I don’t believe you can trust Harry and Meghan. Meghan only wants to come here because it will increase her popularity in getting work, she hopes."
