Kate Middleton's image was manipulated to remove Prince William

Grazia has admitted digital manipulation of images of the royal wedding, says the Guardian. Kate Middleton’s image was manipulated to remove Prince William and she was ‘touched up’ in the process.

The magazine responded to a complaint to the Press Complaints Commission, saying:

‘… we asked our reproduction house to remove him from the picture (common practice among glossy magazines). This would have left the Duchess with only one arm, so they copied over her arm to complete the picture. We would like to reassure all our readers that we did not purposely make any alternations to the Duchess of Cambridge’s image to make her appear slimmer, and we are sorry if this process gave that impression. Grazia takes the issue of women’s body image very seriously and we would never “slim down” a picture of a female role model.’
