Kate Middleton says she edited Mother’s Day royal photo

It was supposed to counter the many conspiracy theories about the health of the Princess of Wales, but it did the opposite.

The photo of Kate Middleton and her three children, sent out yesterday, was the first to be issued since her abdominal surgery – but it was withdrawn by international picture agencies hours later because it had been “manipulated”, in their words.

Kate has apologised, admitting in a statement: “I do occasionally experiment with editing.”
