Royal fans spot odd detail in photo of Kate Middleton and King Charles' first post-scandal joint outing

Nothing gets past eagle-eyed royal fans.

Kate Middleton and King Charles have carried out their first joint engagement together after being named as the royals who allegedly expressed 'concerns' over the colour of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son Archie's skin.

The two senior royals, accompanied by Prince William and Queen Camilla, pulled out all the stops for a Diplomatic Reception at Buckingham Palace, with both royal women delighting fans by donning tiaras for the occasion.

The Princess of Wales looked stunning in a pink sequinned Jenny Packham gown, which she paired with the Lover’s Knot Tiara, while Queen Camilla donned a cream embroidered evening coat with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.

And royals fans have spotted an odd detail in the snap, with many questioning why Kate is the only one wearing her sash on a different side to the others.

The royals’ official appearance comes just days after TV presenter Piers Morgan revealed on his show, Piers Morgan Uncensored, that Kate Middleton and King Charles were named in the Dutch version of Omid Scobie’s book, Endgame, as the royals who allegedly questioned what colour Prince Archie’s skin would be when he was born.

Piers said: “I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family and until there is actual evidence of those comments I will never believe it”.

Piers said he wanted to "cut through all this crap" and name the family members.

"Frankly, if Dutch people wandering into a bookshop can pick it up and see these names, then you, British people, here — who actually pay for the British royal family — you’re entitled to know too," he said. "And then we can have a more open debate about this whole farrago. Because I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family — and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made I will never believe it.

"But now we can start the process of finding out if they ever got uttered, what the context was, and whether there was any racial intent at all. Like I say, I don’t believe there was. The royals named in this book are…”
