Grazia Comes Clean, Admits To Photoshopping Kate Middleton

British magazine Grazia has admitted the obvious: they Photoshopped Kate Middleton on the cover of their Royal Wedding issue.

The mag originally denied the allegations back in May, saying "no changes whatsoever were made to the image", but following an investigation by the Press Complaints Commission Grazia was forced to come clean.

Grazia explained in a statement they wanted "a great image of the duchess on her own, but all the photographs had the Duke in too … so we asked our reproduction house to remove him from the picture (common practice among glossy magazines). This would have left the Duchess with only one arm, so they copied over her arm to complete the picture."

The statement adds they "would like to reassure all our readers that we did not purposely make any alternations to the Duchess of Cambridge's image to make her appear slimmer, and we are sorry if this process gave that impression".

And there you have it.
