The Duchess of Cambridge has become the butt of the jokes worldwide with King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands being the latest to poke fun at her photo editing scandal.

AceShowbiz - King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands has joined the chorus of criticism against Princess Kate Middleton's recent photo-editing scandal. While greeting children during a royal engagement in Zutphen on Tuesday, March 12, the 56-year-old monarch couldn't resist taking a jab at Kate's Mother's Day portrait.

When a child mentioned a photo of the king and his family, Willem-Alexander responded in Dutch, "At least I didn't Photoshop it." His comment has sparked laughter and further fueled the ongoing debate about the authenticity of Kate's photo.

The scandal began last Sunday, March 10, when Kate shared a portrait of herself with her three children on social media to mark Mother's Day in the U.K. The photo, reportedly taken by her husband Prince William, showed the family seated in their Adelaide Cottage home. She ditched her wedding ring in the pic.

Soon after the photo was posted, questions arose about its authenticity due to perceived inconsistencies in lighting and shadows around several of the subjects. Kate's face also appeared to have been altered, leading to accusations of manipulation.

Several news outlets and photo agencies subsequently received a "kill notification" to remove the image, a highly unusual move. In a statement, they said, "At closer inspection, it appears that the source has manipulated the image."

Despite the widespread criticism, Kate took ownership of the issue on Monday, March 11. In a message posted on the official Kensington Palace X account, she wrote, "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused."

King Willem-Alexander's lighthearted mockery of the situation highlights the global attention and debate surrounding Kate's photo editing. Despite the close relationship between the Dutch and British royal families, the king's comments suggest that the Photoshop controversy has become a hot topic of discussion around the world.
