It seems that many individuals online got carried away with their comments about the Princess of Wales in recent weeks. Now, it appears that the truth has emerged, and some people are owning up to their mistakes.

Keep reading to see what Blake Lively is now apologizing for.

After the Princess of Wales announced her cancer diagnosis this past Friday, it seems that many people who made jokes about her whereabouts felt remorseful as well.

“I’m sure no one cares right now, but I feel like I have to acknowledge this,” Blake wrote on her Instagram story. “I made a silly post during the ‘photoshop fails’ frenzy, and oh man, that post has me mortified today. I’m sorry. Sending love and well wishes to all, always.”

The situation arose when people began questioning Kate Middleton’s whereabouts since the royal had not been seen since her abdominal surgery in January.

During her absence, Kensington Palace released a photo of the princess with her three children for Mother’s Day in Britain. It was later revealed that the image had been photoshopped. Photo agencies began removing the image, stating that it had been manipulated at the source.

Once this fact was exposed, people, including Blake Lively, began making jokes about the Princess.

Shortly after the photoshopped image was revealed, Kate issued an explanation. She wrote, “Like many amateur photographers, I do sometimes experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused.”

Blake Lively attempted to make light of the situation with an ad for her mocktail company. The post has since been deleted, but it featured a poorly photoshopped image with a caption that read, “I’m so excited to share this new picture I just took today to announce our 4 new @bettybuzz & @bettybooze products. Now you know why I’ve been MIA.”

Just days after Blake made the joke, the Princess of Wales revealed her diagnosis. Kate shared with the world that she has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment for it.

Following the announcement, there was an outpouring of well wishes from people all over the world. Many individuals apologized for their jokes and speculation about her disappearance.
