Prince George 'airbrushed' by US Weekly: Have magazines finally gone too far?
Tabloid magazine accused of making a series of digital enhancements including changing his brown eyes to green
Friday 25 April 2014
Tabloid magazines are no strangers to digital enhancement, but the industry's latest work may raise a few eyebrows after an American magazine allegedly Photoshopped the face of Prince George in preparation for his latest cover.
The nine-month-old appears to have had his brown eyes changed to green, his hair lightened to a strawberry-blonde, and his lips and cheeks reddened by US Weekly.
The young prince is set to grace the next cover of the magazine following his tour of Australia and New Zealand with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The image in question: George visiting Taronga Zoo with his parents last Sunday.
The third in line to the throne is less of a stranger to digital enhancement than you might think however. Earlier this month an image of him playing with a wooden bead frame was altered to remove an inscription on the toy stating that it belonged to the Tawa-Linden Plunket Toy Library.
The royal tour of Australia ended on Friday with Prince George once again stealing the show - by snubbing the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
