Kate, the Princess of Wales, has apologised "for any confusion" after she said she edited a Mother's Day photograph of her and her children. The statement was posted on social media after five agencies retracted the picture over editing concerns. "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing," Kate said.

The BBC has spoken to experts about how the image might have been altered: How might Kate's photo been altered?

I reckon Harry , the ginger winger, had turned up unannounced just as the shutter fired .

She figured other than that it was a nice photo , so photoshopped him out !

Seem reasonable ?

Or just too unlikely he'd get past security ?

I've been tending to the 'bad composite' explanation.
But I'm not as familiar as Neil with the family's dynamic

I think this may be the perfect example of the saying "Just because you think you can edit a photograph, it doesn't mean to say you should".

Best regards, Neil

P.s. There goes my OBE....

This is not a case of "airbrushing out a pimple". The obvious doctoring -- for example, a blurred right hand when everything around it is in focus -- indicates that there were some major change, or changes, made -- and they did a lousy job covering it up. In other words, and entire hand was moved, inserted, or???? Why would they do surgery like that???

There's a good reason they are not going to show the original -- because they are covering up something "nasty".

And why the PRESS has to connect this in some way to her surgery is a different question -- but that's another cover-up as well.

It all seems so ridiculous because we are all going to find out sooner or later what's it all about.

Harry is unlikely - he has to evade paparazzi in the US, enter the UK without being stopped by the border guards and avoid security at the palace ...

Bad composite picture sounds reasonable!

Sorry about your OBE, Neil.

I think Kate's pronoun is she, not they
What did Charlotte do that is so horrendous? What did Louis do that warranted his mother's hand? Do your RESEARCH!!! THEY want to keep you DUMB
