• Princess Eugenie shared a series of photos from the Platinum Jubilee and paid tribute to her grandmother Queen Elizabeth on Instagram
  • She was accused of cropping out Kate Middleton and Duchess Camilla in one picture
  • A number of royal fans came to Princess Eugenie's defense, saying she likely didn't intentionally edit them out

Princess Eugenie posted a photo from Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee in which Kate Middleton is cropped out, and royal fans have mixed opinions about it.

After the four-day festivities of the Platinum Jubilee, which celebrated the 96-year-old monarch's 70 years on the throne, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson's youngest daughter paid tribute to her grandmother and shared a series of photos from the event on Instagram.

"Thank you, Your Majesty, Grannie, for 70 years of service, selflessness and dedication. You are such a shining light for us all," Princess Eugenie wrote in the caption. "Just a final roundup of some epic moments of the most special weekend that I was so honored to be a part of."

The photos that Princess Eugenie shared were taken during various events, including the Trooping the Colour parade and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant.

However, one picture, in particular, grabbed the attention of royal fans and social media users. It was taken during the Jubilee finale when the Queen made a surprise appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace with Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Middleton and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Fans noticed that Duchess Kate and Duchess Camilla had been cropped out and took to Twitter to speculate on the possible reason.

"Eugenie's jealousy is showing. No wonder she and Meghan Markle get along. I can picture those two gossiping about Camilla and Catherine like a couple of high school mean girls," one person claimed.

"Oh, Eugenie. At best, she is lazy and thoughtless. But given her relationship with the Harkles, I totally get why people are not giving her the benefit of the doubt. Cropping Camilla and Kate was really dumb of her," a second user tweeted.

"It's the obvious cropping game for me. She left enough sleeves on both sides so you are left with no doubt," another commented.

"Princess Eugenie out here being petty as hell! Why cut out Catherine and Camilla? #PettyPrincess" another tweeted.

However, others defended Princess Eugenie, saying that she likely didn't intentionally edit the two duchesses out of the photo. According to some users, Instagram automatically crops photos if they are not among the site's supported aspect ratios.

"They weren't cropped. If you post one pic individually on Instagram, you can usually get full size, but when you post multiple pics, it shrinks them and you can't get full view. I don't know why it happens, but I don't believe there was any malice intended here," one user explained.

"Sometimes Instagram crops the picture on its own for the ratio. I would give her the benefit of the doubt here," another added.

"I’m sure she just didn’t know how to use the sizing arrows when posting multiple photos. Harmless operator error," a third person tweeted.

"If you share her post as a DM on IG, the full wider picture is sent. Try it, you'll see!" another user suggested.

Princess Eugenie and her family recently moved out of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's U.K. home, Frogmore Cottage, and moved to Portugal for her husband Jack Brooksbank's new job.

Her family returned to the U.K. last week for the Platinum Jubilee festivities, where Princess Eugenie's 1-year-old son August made his royal debut at Sunday's Platinum Jubilee Pageant.
