Is the photo of the Danish royals edited?

Speculation has arisen among observers suggesting that the royal couple may have been photographed separately and subsequently digitally merged into one image. One user commented, "Beautiful photo, but another digitally enhanced royal photo?," while another remarked, "Was this photoshopped? I mean it looks like they were photographed separately then put together?"

The debate centered particularly on the positioning of Queen Mary's hand in front of King Frederik, which some found unnatural. "It looks like Queen Mary has been put into the photo of Fred. The hand position is identical.," noted another commenter.

Despite the widespread speculation, the Danish palace has officially affirmed that the image is authentic and has not undergone digital manipulation. According to the British newspaper "Express," the palace stated, "The Royal House's official gala portrait has not been manipulated," aiming to dispel rumors and uphold the integrity of the portrait.

Princess Kate (42) recently faced criticism for a retouched photo on Mother's Day. She subsequently issued a public apology for the image.
