Kate Middleton’s “amateur” photography may be behind her.

The Princess of Wales, 42, is reportedly too embarrassed to post more photos after her Photoshop fail.

In honor of UK Mother’s Day on Sunday, Middleton shared a photo of herself smiling with her children, Prince George, 10, Prince Louis, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 8. It was the first snapshot released by the future queen as she continues to stay out of the public eye while recovering from abdominal surgery she had in January.

The image was riddled with numerous editing errors – several photo agencies, such as the Associated Press, retracted the photo and urged media outlets not to use it because it was “doctored”.

The agencies also asked Kensington Palace to send them an unaltered version of the graphic, but they refused.

Expert Russell Myers gave some insight into the Duchess of Cambridge’s stance on sharing photos in the future on the Royal Beat podcast.

“They have presented a picture and I think they need to review the process,” he said.

He further claimed: “I think the biggest shame is that Kate may never pose again.”

“And we posted pictures of the kids’ birthdays, Lewis’s first day of school, his Christmas cards for many years. If she doesn’t do this, it will be a great shame for her.

A day after the photo made headlines – becoming the center of conspiracy theories about her whereabouts amid the debacle – Middleton apologized for altering it.

“Like many amateur photographers, I occasionally experiment with editing. “I want to apologize for any confusion caused by the family photo we shared yesterday,” she tweeted on Monday.

However, Prince William, 41, praised Middleton’s photography skills during a visit to charity facility West Youth Zone in London on Thursday, saying she was “hands-on” in the family.

Phil Chetwynd, global news director for France’s AFP news agency, recently claimed that Kensington Palace could not be a “reliable source” of information following the accident.

He appeared on BBC Radio 4’s “Media Show” and said the palace was “not credible at all”.

“Like anything, when you’re let down by a source, the bar gets raised,” he explained.

“To eliminate something based on manipulation [is rare],” he said, adding that the incident “could happen once a year, I hope less.”

“You can’t distort reality for the public,” Chetwynd said. “It is a question of trust. “And the bigger issue here is trust, and the lack of trust and the general public’s declining trust in institutions and the media.”
