Kate Middleton just got the worst kind of extreme makeover.

Australian magazine Woman's Day features the Duchess of Cambridge on the cover of their latest issue and someone clearly got a little retouch happy in Photoshop.

The glossy, which has previously been in hot water with the royal family for publishing pictures from Kate and Prince William's honeymoon pictures in 2011, which the international media had agreed to ignore for privacy reasons.

The magazine features a picture of Kate during her most recent public appearance last week, but while touching up her makeup for the cover, they transformed her face a little too much.

They have since published a scaled down, more natural version of the cover on their Facebook page and deleted the earlier cover.

The pregnant royal is no stranger to retouching controversy after Grazia famously made her waist significantly smaller for their royal wedding coverage in 2011 and Marie Claire South Africa published a bizarre version of the Duchess in 2012.
