People think Kate Middleton is levitating in a photo

Really?

Kate Middleton usually makes headlines for her stylish clothes or if she's out on an official visit but, this time, people are talking about her for a bizarre reason.

She recently joined French President Francois Hollande, Prime Minister David Cameron, her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry to mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme in France.

While at the memorial a photo surfaced of Kate which appears to show her levitating while walking.

Crazy, I know.

Here is the photo in question:

THIEPVAL, FRANCE - JULY 1: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry attend a service to mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Battle of the Somme at the Thiepval memorial to the Missing on July 1, 2016 in Thiepval, France. The event is part of the Commemoration of the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Thiepval Memorial in Thiepval, France, where 70,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers with no known grave are commemorated.

We can see why people might think that she is levitating but it's clearly just an optical illusion.

The initial confusion begins with the contrast between her feet and David Cameron's. At that eye level she looks like she could be levitating but if you look at the whole picture she's walking alongside Harry so clearly she couldn't be.

If you look in closer you can see she's just walking along as normal.
