Photoshop Error on Prince William's Family Christmas Card?

The Prince and Princess of Wales have just recently uploaded their family Christmas card photo for 2023. It features Prince William and Kate Middleton with their three children: George (10), Charlotte (8), and Louis (5). They're all fabulously wearing a casual white shirt and trousers, with the photo being shot by Josh Shinner indoors on a gray background.

If you look closely at the photo, as user Mendee Menkyu astutely points out, you will notice at the left hand corner of the chair that there seems to be two sets of legs, which apparently looks like they were a Photoshop edit gone wrong. Since Charlotte is wearing the same type of sneakers, perhaps it had been a different shot that got mashed up with the final one.

However, several users clarified that there was no Photoshop mishap, but rather just a little bit of an optical illusion, in which William's leg just happened to line up with Louis' black shorts making it look like there are a pair of legs unaccounted for.

Another user, BossyMother, also thought that they had Photoshopped Louis' fingers, making them look like as if he has six. However, as others corrected, the placement of his hand on the armchair only made the gap between his middle and ring finger appear as though a finger is hidden underneath. Although, to be honest, this one is a bit of a stretch.

Dang, children grow up fast when you're not paying attention. It seems like William and Kate just got married a year or two ago.
It looks like they put Charlotte in a chair because she's taller than George.
