After taking the blame for a manipulated photo, Kate, Princess of Wales, is now being classed as a victim of "bullying," mostly from "online trolls," according to a palace insider.

This led royal commentator Jennie Bond to share: "She must feel under intense pressure now whenever she’s going to be seen in public."

"The pressure has doubled and redoubled," Bond added. "I think she’s in a fragile mental and physical state. We should lay off her. I do think we are in danger of bullying a lady who is trying to recover from a very serious operation."

Bond continued: "I think of how she must be feeling this morning. Absolutely miserable. I think her Mother’s Day was obviously ruined by this row. She was photographed yesterday in the car with William. From what we see, she didn’t look that happy."

Kate accompanied the Prince of Wales on his return trip from the annual Commonwealth Day Service in Westminster Abbey to "go to an appointment" afterward. Her dour expression and refusal to look anywhere near the cameras have some royal insiders claiming she "purposefully" hid her face in an act of defiance and to give news agencies and "trolls" "the middle finger."

The Prince of Wales took the photograph of his wife and children.

After major news agencies issued "kill warnings" on her photograph, which was taken by Prince William, Her Royal Highness took to X to share: "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."

Catherine, Princess of Wales, has rarely been seen in public since Christmas Day 2023.

Royal author Rob Jobson 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.

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."
