Princess Eugenie appeared to edit Kate Middleton out of a Platinum Jubilee photo from last weekend. Eugenie is known to be particularly close with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Royal fans are reading a secret motive behind Princess Eugenie cropping Kate Middleton out of a group photo from Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.



Eugenie is known to be particularly close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the photo editing has been seen as the princess “clearly making a statement for & behalf of Harry & Meghan” The 32-year-old princess posted a series of images from the once-in-a-lifetime celebration to her Instagram account.

She wrote: “Thank you, Your Majesty, Grannie, for 70 years of service, selflessness and dedication. You are such a shining light for us all. “Just a final roundup of some epic moments of the most special weekend that I was so honoured to be a part of.” A group shot of the working royals on Buckingham Palace’s famous balcony showed Her Majesty flanked by Prince Charles and Prince William with his two children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.



At the edges of image, there are clear signs that the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Cornwall were also there, but didn’t make it into the final – square-cropped – photo. Instagram user Ana Esmeralda Gonzalez asked “Why did you take Kate and Camilla out of the second picture?” Amanda Richardson went one further, saying: “Lovely photos but why would you cut out the next two Queens, Camilla and Catherine? Very petty my dear.” Once the photo found its way to Twitter, the reaction was even stronger.

One user, calling themselves Rufus T Firefly, said they knew why Eugenie might be hostile to the two future queens: “Harry is really close with Eugenie and Beatrice’s mother, Sarah Ferguson. They’re part of the ‘Red Setter Mob’ (Royal Family nickname) because of their red hair.” Dr Zanye Omolewa shipped in: “It’s the obvious cropping game for me. She left enough sleeve on both sides so you are left with no doubt.”



In an apparent reference to the “Don’t Touch My Hair” controversy, when singer Solange Knowles’s hair was edited on a magazine cover against her wishes, Pagan Trelawney wrote: “I’m going to start calling Eugenie, “Solange”, because her crop game is on point!” However, it’s possible that royal fans were reading a too much into one photo. Twitter user SWH pointed out: “I’m sure she just didn’t know how to use the sizing arrows when posting multiple photos. Harmless operator error.”
