Concern for Kate Middleton surges after media outlets were asked to retract the only photo of the Princess published since her health scare two months ago. 

The photo was shared on Britian’s Mother’s Day and featured Princess Kate Middleton seated with her three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis. The 10, 8, and 5-year-olds, who she shares with her husband William, the Prince of Wales affectionately hugged their mum in the since removed photograph.

A letter from the Associated Press asked for the image to be removed from as the photo’s source has “manipulated the image” which has created more concern around the Princess’s health.
