Is the Duchess Of Cambridge pregnant (“It’s Twins!”) or did Star magazine use Photoshop to make Kate Middleton look like she’s sporting a baby bump?

After claiming "It's Official -- Kate's Pregnant!" on the cover of it's September 17th issue, '"Star'' Magazine's new October 1 issue can reportedly now "confirm" that "It's Twins!" Using a photo of the Duchess - wearing a Prabal Gurung dress and holding a glass of water - from the state dinner in Singapore on September 11, the magazine shows The Duchess Of Cambridge with her hand on seemingly bumped-up belly. Moreover, a family friend reportedly confirms Middleton had an early pregnancy test done and her hormone levels indicated that two royal babies were on the way.

Gossip site, Celebuzz was first to report on Middleton's apparent photoshop. "When put side by side with the original, untouched image of Middleton, distinct differences materialize. Not only has is her floral slim-fit frock been mysteriously blown out - Photoshopped in magazine parlance - but Prince William's wife is mysteriously missing her right-hand ring on Star's "It's Twins!" cover," the website states.

When comparing Star's cover photo with the original, The Huffington Post echoed similar discrepancies:

"Star flipped the wire photo horizontally, which is standard publishing practice, and they've also lightened the Duchess' hair and face. But in our opinion, the retouching seems to go further. The lines of Catherine's dress appeared fuzzy on Star's cover, a sure sign that they've been manipulated (i.e., pressed outward to suggest a bump, perhaps?). They also seem to have removed a ring from her right hand and re-adjusted the water glass so it could be closer to her face. The placement of the "William's Warning!" graphic, which covers her backside, also makes her slim figure look wider than it is."

It's not the first time the Duchess of Cambridge has been photoshopped on the cover of a magazine. in August, Middleton appeared on the cover of Marie Claire South Africa.

    this is what a.holes do... get them selves into trouble i think what ever privacy photos and rumour photos and stories they say about the royals should be taken to court. how would the family of the photographers feel if some one done that to them or a member of their family... its a disgrace....

    If they keep publishing it often enough they are bound to get it right one day. Talk about putting the pressure on those two! Poor Kate. Everytime she has a bloated belly, which happens sometimes, the headlines go nuts over it.

    Just ignore; this is what the greedy photographers and publishers do to make quick money by raising the anxieties of royal fans and the resultant rise in the sales of newspapers and magazines.

    The way media carries on ... a good headline would be to fake her funeral too! What bloody bovine excreta these magazines produce. The people who buy this shyte are no better. Can't they see themselves being hoodwinked? Do not buy the mags for one or two editions and they will fold. Come on people just try that.

    Why do these idiots bring themselves down to such low levels and do this type of thing. To sell their trash mags? Bloody fools, they should be sued out of business if they blatantly sell lies. Put them to good use and force them into politics, they would fit right in...

    Well if you really look at the photos there is a whole lot of things that standout like the proverbial dogs ***** the bracelet is on the wrong arm being the most clear thing that is wrong. Compare the Getty image with the one by Star Magazine.
