Duchess of Cambridge has found herself in the center of another photo controversy, this time involving a car picture with Prince William

A photo taken of Kate and William in a car leaving Windsor Castle sparked online speculation.

Some social media users noticed a difference in the appearance of the brick wall behind the car, seen through the window versus above it. This led to accusations of photo manipulation.

Optical Illusion or Doctored Photo?

Theories about the photo being edited were widespread. However, other royal fans provided a more likely explanation.

The difference in brick appearance could be attributed to an optical illusion caused by the angle of the photo and the car window.

“PhotoGate” Heats Up on The View

Whoopi Goldberg and the co-hosts of The View became embroiled in a heated debate over the photo.

Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar expressed suspicion that the image had been altered.

Whoopi Goldberg defended the royals and dismissed the claims.

Photo Agency Denies Editing

The photo agency that took the picture denied any manipulation. The photographer confirmed edits were limited to cropping and adjusting light levels.

Explanation Emerges: Bricks and Angles
Royal fans offered a more down-to-earth explanation.

The difference in brick appearance is likely due to the fact that the photo captured two separate structures: a brick wall and a building further back.

Another Edited Photo Controversy

This incident comes on the heels of a previous controversy involving a Mother’s Day photo of Kate with her children.

The Duchess admitted to editing the photo, and it was later withdrawn by photo agencies due to suspected digital manipulation.

Fallout from the Mother’s Day Photo

The editing of the Mother’s Day photo has been criticized by PR experts. Some believe the best course of action would be to release the unedited version to regain public trust.
