As reported by Yahoo! News, the royal family’s official social media platforms released a portrait yesterday to commemorate the Duke of Edinburgh’s milestone age. The photo which saw the Queen and Prince Philip posing at the quadrangle of the Windsor Castle failed to elicit congratulatory messages from fans.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have been married for almost 73 years. The pair first met in 1934 at a wedding ceremony of his cousin.

Instead, it sparked outrage among fans who pointed out a photoshop fail in the image that suggests it wasn’t taken on the grounds of the castle. An Instagram user took to the comments section and joked about the royal couple had gone to space and not Windsor castle.

Other fans focused less on the background but on an odd detail on the Queen’s hands, which saw a shadowy trail trace Her Majesty’s left hand. A concerned user asked:

“Have they photoshopped the Queen's hands into the photo with Prince Phillip?! If so, why? That dark shadow around the hand makes it look like it's been cut from another photo.”

Some Twitter users agreed with the observation with a user by the name Dan, wondering why the photo was “poorly photoshopped.”

A royal fan named Patrick joked about knowing too well that the enhancement was badly done as he was conversant with bad photoshop. The last user offered her services as a photoshopper to the royal family.

People Magazine notes that the photo shared was taken last week and saw the Queen looking radiant in a grey and yellow floral number by Angela Kelly and accessorizing with the 18.8-carat Cullinan V diamond brooch.

Oprah Magazine recalls that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have been married for almost 73 years. The pair first met in 1934 at a wedding ceremony of his cousin. Five years later, they crossed each other’s paths, and a friendship was ignited.

By 1946, Prince Philip asked for her hand in marriage and the year after they announced their engagement. On November 20, 1947, they tied the knot at Westminster Abbey.

According to HELLO! Magazine, the Prince’s milestone age of 99 years, makes him the third longest-living British Royal.
