Whoopi Goldberg Comes To Kate Middleton’s Defense Over The Editing Of 'Amateur' Mother's Day Photo

Recently, Whoopi Goldberg expressed her bewilderment regarding the criticism aimed at Princess Kate following her admission of editing a photo featuring her children. The image’s Photoshop inconsistencies have sparked significant attention.

“I’m sorry, I know very few people who don’t manipulate their own photos. I mean all you gotta do is swipe. Those editors swipe, God knows people look how those photos look,” Whoopi remarked during a discussion on The View.

The discussion became more heated when Sara Haines distinguished between “filtering” and outright Photo-shopping, a point that Whoopi challenged.

“She’s doing the same thing; she’s doing the same thing!” Whoopi exclaimed, emphasizing that photo manipulation is commonplace. 

“You know what, I have to tell you, she may be the future queen, but she’s still an amateur photographer. That’s what they do!” she added, addressing Kate’s dual role as a public figure and a private individual enjoying photography.

Whoopi then playfully accused her co-hosts, “I’m sure that none of you have ever tampered with your [photos].”

Princess Kate released a statement on Monday morning after questions were raised

Ana Navarro humorously admitted, “Listen, if manipulating pictures was a crime, the Kardashians, my best friend and I would be in jail for the rest of our lives,” eliciting laughter from the audience. 

Whoopi, undeterred, reiterated her point, “Didn’t I just say that this is something that everyone does? Didn’t I just say that people do this all the time?!”

Defending Kate further, Whoopi found it unnecessary for people to remain upset after Kate openly admitted to editing the images. “Listen, I manipulated the pictures, I’m sorry,” Whoopi quoted Kate, highlighting her transparency.

Alyssa Farah Griffin suggested that the controversy “feeds fuel to this fire of conspiracies,” referring to the speculation around Kate’s activities post-surgery. 

Alyssa proposed Kate release a selfie video to address the speculation, to which Whoopi firmly responded, “She doesn’t need to do it! She doesn’t need to do it!” illustrating her stance that Kate owes no further explanation.

Whoopi shared her personal experiences with photo manipulation, noting, “I’ve been on the cover of magazines where they’ve edited out my wrinkles, lightened up my color, even put a donkey nose on my face.” 

She stressed the normalcy of altering images, “People can do anything they want to do with pictures –– this should not be a shock.”

The conversation briefly diverted to Kate’s absence of her engagement ring in the contentious photo before coming to a close.

Following the backlash, Princess Kate issued an apology on Twitter: “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,” highlighting her intentions behind sharing the edited photo and wishing everyone a happy Mother’s Day.

The contentious photograph depicted the royal family in an informal setting, with Princess Kate surrounded by her and Prince William’s children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—capturing a moment intended as a personal Mother’s Day tribute.
