This headline and image mix up of the Royals is…unfortunate (IMAGE)

An unfortunate mix up at news aggregator site Feedly matched a headline to the wrong image, and has left the British royal family somewhat red-faced.

Around 12 million people use Feedly every day to pull in news sources from around the world, bringing them a tailored newsfeed from their favourite sites. But it isn’t perfect.

On Friday morning, Feedly pulled through the image for a story about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, alongside a headline from a quiet different story. The result was this.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
