A photoshopped picture of Diana, Princess of Wales cooing over Princess Charlotte is creeping people out.

The image, which was created by an American Lori Eastwood, shows the Duchess of Cambridge at her daughter Charlotte’s christening earlier this year alongside Lady Diana.

Ms Eastwood, who says she creates “Diana photo blends every Sunday in her memory”, merged the photograph with another taken of the then Princess of Wales meeting Mother Teresa in 1997.
