Doctored photos showing Kate Middleton with bruised face published without palace permission

Doctored images of Kate Middleton with a bruised face have gone up in several spots in Europe as part of a campaign to end domestic violence.

The images, which have been created by artist AleXsandro Palombo, using existing photos of Kate Middleton, have shocked royal fans, upset by seeing a depiction of the Duchess with cuts and bruises all over her face.

The doctored photos, created by Palombo, are accompanied by a caption that calls for a change in the way domestic violence is addressed:

“She reported him.

“But nobody believed her – but she was left alone.

“But she was not protected – but he was not stopped.”

“But she was killed anyway,” the posters read at the bottom.

According to The Sun, Kensington Palace was not approached with a request for permission to use the images.

The Duchess is not the only famous face that has been edited to look battered and bruised for the campaign.

Palombo did the same with images of US Vice President Kamala Harris and Queen Letizia of Spain, among others.

The goal of the artist is not to imply that any of these women are victims of domestic violence but to create a conversation about the way society tackles domestic violence.

Palombo has told media he wants the images to “draw attention to the poor responses from politics regarding the problem of gender-based violence” and highlight the “ineffectiveness of the support and protection system to the victims”.

On Instagram, he pointed out the victims’ lack of faith in the institutions that have failed others before them.

“How can a woman victim of abuse and violence still have faith in the institutions?”

The photo of Duchess Kate has been doctored to show bruises around the eyes, as well as cuts to the nose, lips and eyebrows.

How to get help

If you’re in danger now:

• Phone the police on 111 or ask neighbours or friends to ring for you.
• Run outside and head for where there are other people. Scream for help so your neighbours can hear you.
