People Are Pointing Out The Photoshop Fails In The Latest Kate Middleton Picture, And It's DEFINITELY Not Helping The Conspiracy Theories

That's a messy photoshop job, indeed.

Well, well, well, here we are again.

The whole "Kate Middleton missing" conspiracy theory started about two weeks ago when Prince William canceled an appearance at his godfather's memorial service for "personal reasons."

Meanwhile, the Princess of Wales hadn't been seen in months because she's recovering from abdominal surgery.

That canceled appearance and the lack of public appearances by Kate led to TONS of speculation about her whereabouts.

“yeh so basically Kate Middleton hasn’t been seen in months like she’s actually missing. word on the conspiracy street is that she’s doing 1 of many things - gone for a BBL, growing out her bangs, lost at the Wonka experience. also she’s possibly banksy x” pic.twitter.com/y1JqXmRZ5u

Other people said she was just waiting for her bangs to grow out.

My favorite Kate Middleton theory so far is that she got bangs and is waiting for them to grow out 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Kensington Palace has reportedly said that the princess is recovering from the surgery and "continues to do well."

Then, last week, she was spotted in a car.

And now the Prince and Princess of Wales have posted Kate's first picture since her last public appearance on Christmas Day.

As you can see, the picture was taken by Prince William.

Unfortunately, whoever edited the photo didn't do a great job, and now people are zooming in and pointing out all of the messy photoshop.

As you can see, whoever did it clearly didn't do a great job.

Um, did the photo editor not spot this on Charlotte's arm when he doctored the image? 🤔🤣🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ Whoever it was didn't clean up the image very well 🤣 pic.twitter.com/rIteoa3AZj

"Is Kate Middleton just taking a 3 month break to learn how to use Photoshop?" this person asked.

It gets even stranger...

The royals reporter for ITV also said that three international photo agencies refused to distribute the pic because it was "manipulated."
