Picture agency withdraws ANOTHER photo of the royals as Prince Archie’s christening snap is said to have been ‘digitally enhanced’ despite photographer’s denial

Prince Archie’s official christening photo, featuring a proud Duke and Duchess of Sussex, is the latest royal image to be drawn into the photo manipulation saga.

Global photo agency Getty said the portrait had been “digitally enhanced.” It is unclear why, while there are no signs of clear discrepancies. The photo – taken by fashion photographer Chris Allerton – was released after Archie’s christening on July 6, 2019, and shows the two-month-old baby with Meghan, Prince Harry, King Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland and Princess Diana’s sisters.

Last night Mr Allerton strongly denied manipulating the image. He said: ‘A load of cobblers. Bye.’

Prince Archie’s official christening photo has been recalled by global photo agency Getty, which said the portrait has been ‘digitally enhanced’

It follows last week’s furor over the Princess of Wales’s Mother’s Day portrait after she admitted she ‘occasionally experiments with editing’. Several international news agencies have issued a ‘kill’ notice withdrawing its use.

A portrait of the late Queen with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren – taken by Kate at Balmoral in August 2022 – has also received the same branding from Getty. Both photos have an “editor’s note” in the Getty captions that states: “Image has been digitally enhanced at the source.”

Kate’s portrait of the late Queen – with her two grandchildren, Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, and James, Earl of Wessex, and eight great-grandchildren, Lena Tindall, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Isla Phillips, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall, Lucas Tindall and Savannah Phillips – was released on April 21 last year to mark Elizabeth II’s 97th birthday.

Upon closer inspection, it appears that the sofa has been spliced ​​together; there is a vertical line where the tartan of Elizabeth II’s skirt does not fit; there are black spots behind Prince George and Prince Louis. Mia’s hair shows signs of ‘digital repetition’, as does Charlotte’s dress.

A Getty spokesperson said: ‘Getty Images conducts a review of distributed images and, in accordance with its editorial policy, will post an editor’s note on images where the source has suggested they could be digitally enhanced.’

Spokespersons for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were contacted.
