Royal fans fuming as edited photos of Kate with black eyes and cuts used for campaign


KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, has been featured in a shocking campaign initiated by an artist to denounce violence against women.

He depicted all of them as survivors of gender violence who did report the person who hurt them previously and ended up in danger anyway.

Words accompanying an edited photo of Kate Middleton covered in cuts and bruises read: “She reported him but nobody believed her.

“She was left alone but she was not protected.

“He has not stopped.

“She was killed anyway.”

The Italian artist wrote: “A State that does not protect but leaves women alone in the hands of their tormentor becomes a silent accomplice.”

AleXsandro Palombo said 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.”

Cuffs_Cuffs_Cufss wrote on Instagram: “Exploiting women without their permission and attaching yourself to a cause simply to gain recognition for your own work is not only pathetic it is another form of abuse.

“You had no right to publish or alter the images of these women have everything about this is self-serving.

“You should be ashamed of yourself.”

However, his work has also been praised online for bringing attention to an important topic.
