While nothing beats the intensity of Kate Middleton's Mother's Day Photoshop Scandal™, please be advised that this is far from the royal family's first editing fail. The royals have been using questionable image-editing programs for years in their official portraits, and the time has come for a quick trip down memory lane—starting with their 2023 Christmas photo (you know, the one that was giving Royal JC Penny Portrait Studio).

People were fully convinced Prince Louis was missing a finger in the snap, and a source even told Us Weekly that Prince William and Kate were both "embarrassed" everyone thought the photo was edited and that they "were as shocked as everyone else" by the public's reaction.

Meanwhile, in 2015, there was speculation that Princess Charlotte had been photoshopped in the family's Christmas card due to the edges around her head being blurry (a tell-tale sign).

And in April 2023, people were convinced there was some sorta photoshop going on in this portrait of the Queen with her great-grandchildren, mostly because everyone just so happened to be smiling perfectly:

Oh, and there were also claims that the Queen's hand was photoshopped in this image of her and Prince Philip:

But back to Kate's Mother's Day pic! Honestly, we don't even know where to start with this one, but Princess Charlotte's missing sleeve, Prince Louis' askew sweater pattern, and the messed up tiles in the background are probably the biggest red flags here!
