Us Weekly Denies Photoshopping Prince George's Picture

April 26, 2014 (6:13 am) GMT
The magazine was accused of airbrushing a cover photo of the royal baby, but it claims that the color adjustments were made solely 'for printing purposes.'

Us Weekly denies giving a Photoshop makeover to Prince George's picture featured in the cover of its latest edition. Other media noticed the differences between the royal baby's appearance in the original photo and in the magazine's cover, prompting speculation that the magazine added color to his cheeks and enhanced his eyes among other things.

The magazine has offered an explanation to the issue, saying in a statement that the original image needed standard color adjustments in order to be printed. "The original image used for the Prince George cover was dark and bluish in tone and needed to be given an overall color shift for printing purposes," a representative for the magazine said. "By no means did we go in and alter the color of his eyes or cheeks in this process."

Prince George and his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, just departed from Australia on Friday, April 25 after a three-week tour of the country and New Zealand. The family brought home a bunch of toys presented to the nine-month tot, including a wombat stuffed animal from Australia's Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove.

Prince William said his son had become attached to the "cuddly wombat." He said on one of his final days Down Under, "We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly."
