A German fitness instructor named Bella Krauss claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had used a photo of her baby as Archie’s. The photo in question was shared on the Sussex Royal Twitter account, and it showed a baby swaddled in a light green blanket. Krauss said that she had taken the photo of her own son, Maddox Nino, two weeks earlier, and that the Sussexes had simply cropped out her watermark.

The Sun newspaper investigated Krauss’s claim, and they found that she was telling the truth. The photo of Maddox Nino had indeed been used by the Sussexes, and they had not credited Krauss for it. The Sun published an article about the incident, and it caused a media storm.

The Sussexes’ representatives initially denied that they had used Krauss’s photo, but they later admitted that they had made a mistake. They said that they had been sent the photo by a well-meaning friend, and that they had not realized that it was not an original photo of Archie.

The incident caused a lot of damage to the Sussexes’ reputation. They were accused of being dishonest and of not giving credit where credit was due. It also raised questions about their handling of their social media accounts.

The Sussexes have since apologized for the incident, and they have said that they will be more careful in the future. However, the damage has already been done, and it is unlikely that the public will ever forget that they used a photo of someone else’s baby to promote themselves.

Here are some of the reactions to the incident:

“This is such insolent behavior.” – Bella Krauss, the German mum who owns the original photo.

“This is a clear case of plagiarism.” – The Sun newspaper.

“The Sussexes have shown a complete lack of respect for this woman and her child.” – A social media user.

“This is just another example of the Sussexes’ dishonesty.” – A royal commentator.

The incident is a reminder that even the most famous people can make mistakes. It is also a reminder that it is important to give credit where credit is due.
