Prince Harry and Meghan Markle break silence on Kate’s photo



Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken their silence on the Princess of Wales’ photo editing furor.

They denied that sources inside their camp made comments about how the Duchess of Sussex would have handled a similar situation.

Amid increasing speculation surrounding the Mother’s Day image of Kate and her children, which was released to the world by Kensington Palace on Sunday, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell Foundation spoke out to deny that any official representative for the couple had made comments about the controversy to Page Six.

Not from us

Speaking to Newsweek, the spokesperson addressed quotes published by the outlet, which stated that a source ‘close to Prince William, Harry and his wife’, had not come ‘from us’.

The source in question stated that the editing error ‘isn’t a mistake that Meghan would ever make’, noting that ‘she has a keen eye and freakish attention to detail’.

However, Archewell’s official spokesperson has now insisted to Newsweek that the information ‘did not come from us’, stating simply: ‘With respect to Page Six, that did not come from us.’

First time

The statement marks the first time that Harry, 39, and his wife have officially addressed the photo editing controversy in any official capacity.

In addition to the claims made about Meghan ‘never making the [same] mistake’, Page Six also published quotes from an insider who stated that the Sussexes ‘would have been annihilated’ had they released a similarly-edited image.

‘If Harry and Meghan had ever encountered the same issue they would have been annihilated,’ the source quotes read.

‘The same rules do not apply to both couples.

‘This isn’t a mistake that Meghan would ever make … she has a keen eye and freakish attention to detail.’

The outlet did not state that the quotes had come from inside Archewell however – and Newsweek noted that the comments could have been made by an acquaintance of the Sussexes who is not officially connected to the Foundation.

Meghan and Harry’s response to those claims has come after an explosion of conspiracy theories, after six of the world’s top picture agencies including the Press Association, sensationally pulled the photo from their wires and libraries amid concern that the ‘source has manipulated the image’.

Kate’s explanation

Princess Kate publicly took the blame for the family photograph released by Kensington Palace as she issued an apology for the ‘confusion’ in a statement posted on the Wales’ official Instagram account.

‘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,’ she wrote.

‘I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day,’ Kate then concluded, before signing off the statement ‘C’ for Catherine.

Despite calls for the original to be published, Kensington Palace said it would not be reissuing the unedited photograph of Kate and her children.

Moving on

In the wake of the public speculation surrounding the image, royal insiders have claimed that the Princess of Wales is eager to move on from the row – and is struggling to deal with the aftermath.

Kate was seen for the first time since the image was released on Monday, when she was pictured leaving Windsor Castle with her husband, Prince William.

It is understood that the Princess of Wales was traveling to a ‘private appointment’ – while Prince William was due to travel to London for two public engagements.

Hospital stay

The mother-of-three was not expected to be seen in public until after Easter following abdominal surgery and two weeks in a private London hospital in January. Her surprise appearance came as wild online conspiracy theories swirled around the princess and her health.

Kensington Palace has come under enormous pressure to release the un-edited image – which experts have said was changed using Photoshop and related AI tools.

The world’s major photo agencies later ‘killed’ the picture after noticing signs of digital editing, including a missing part of Princess Charlotte’s sleeve and the misaligned edge of her wrist and skirt, and the positioning of Kate’s zip.

Specialists highlight importance of water in daily routine



Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.

From regulating body temperature to aiding in digestion and nutrient absorption, water plays a crucial role in keeping our bodies functioning optimally. However, many of us often overlook the importance of staying hydrated throughout the day. Fortunately, there are simple and effective ways to incorporate more water into your daily routine.


  1. Start your day right: Begin each morning with a refreshing glass of water. After hours of sleep, your body needs hydration to kickstart its systems and replenish fluids lost overnight. This simple habit can set a positive tone for the rest of your day.
  2. Stay equipped: Invest in a reusable water bottle and carry it with you wherever you go. Having water readily available makes it easier to stay hydrated on the move, whether you’re at work, running errands, or exercising.
  3. Set reminders: In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to forget to drink water regularly. Set reminders on your phone or computer to prompt you to take regular water breaks throughout the day. These gentle nudges can help you stay on track with your hydration goals.
  4. Make smart swaps: Replace sugary beverages like soda and juice with water during meals. Not only does this reduce your sugar intake, but it also ensures that you’re hydrating your body with the purest form of liquid it needs.
  5. Get creative with flavor: If you find plain water boring, experiment with natural flavorings like lemon, cucumber, or mint. Infusing your water with fresh fruits or herbs adds a burst of flavor without any extra calories or additives.
  6. Pre- and post-workout hydration: Before and after physical activity, be sure to drink plenty of water to support your body’s performance and recovery. Hydration is especially crucial during exercise, as you lose fluids through sweat.
  7. Keep it accessible: Make water easily accessible by keeping a pitcher or dispenser filled in your home or workplace. Having water within reach encourages you to drink more throughout the day.
  8. Eat your water: Incorporate water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and strawberries into your diet. These hydrating foods not only contribute to your daily fluid intake but also provide essential vitamins and minerals.
  9. Listen to your body: Sometimes, feelings of hunger are actually signs of dehydration. Whenever you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water first and see if your cravings subside. Your body might just be asking for hydration rather than food.
  10. End your day on a hydrated note: Finish off your day with a glass of water before bedtime. Hydrating before sleep helps replenish fluids lost throughout the day and ensures that your body stays hydrated overnight.
