And the people responded, pointing out the newspaper’s own story included pictures that clearly showed her fingers weren’t the same length.
The heat from the two-page article even sparked a Twitter Moment:

“I’ve got an idea: we could do a thing about the size of Kate’s fingers being all the same size”.— Stig Abell (@StigAbell) March 12, 2018
“They aren’t, though”.
“I’ve done a box round them and they don’t touch the same line”.
“We shall publish anyway”. pic.twitter.com/cMMDfUs51V

To think I've been worrying about my own life all this time when I quite clearly could've been thinking about Kate's fingers instead.— carpe noctem (@carpenoctem1234) March 11, 2018
