The Duchess of Sussex's pregnancy is fake
Some of these theories are so crazy that you can’t help but just laugh.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle happily announced that they were pregnant on October 15, 2018, while on an official tour of Australia. Soon after, people started claiming that it was a lie and that the pregnancy was a publicity stunt. Trolls took to social media to tear down the Duchess of Sussex and try to back up their ridiculous rumours with photos from different angles claiming that her bump is fake because it changes shapes. Like all things royal, Meghan has to consider some strict protocols during her pregnancy.
Their relationship is a plan to take over America
Shortly after Meghan and Harry announced their engagement, one man tweeted that when the couple has children, they’ll be American citizens (because of Meghan) and therefore will be eligible to run for president as well as be in the line for the British monarchy. “Brits are playing long-ball here, but it’s a smart move. They want America back and this is how they’ll do it,” the tweeter wrote. This sparked all kinds of rumours that Meghan was just being used as a political pawn to help England regain control of America. This theory hardly warrants a second thought, while these 12 crazy conspiracy theories all turned out to be true.
Love Actually predicted their relationship
If you’ve seen Love Actually, you know the story of Sam and Joanna is pretty similar to Harry and Meghan. Sam is mourning the death of his mother, which Harry also experienced at a young age. He then falls for an American actress/singer, which is exactly what Meghan is. This conspiracy theory is pretty out there, but also a little peculiar when you think about all the similarities.
Meghan had to go home because she broke royal shoe protocol
It’s a well-known fact that the Queen is not a fan of wedged shoes. On an engagement to Fiji in October of 2018, Meghan showed up wearing a gorgeous floral pink dress and Castañer espadrille wedges. She was scheduled to meet with the public for 15 minutes, but it was cut down to only six. Some conspiracy theorists say that she was ordered to leave by the Queen herself because she was wearing wedges. In reality, the visit was cut short due to a security risk. Here are some equally odd “facts” about Princess Diana that just aren’t true.
The royal family shut down a broadcast about their relations
In 2016, Meghan and Harry’s relationship was still a secret. So, people started coming up with theories about how the royal family had blacked out the broadcast when a This Morning segment of the couple was abruptly stopped due to “technical difficulties”. One fan tweeted, “#ThisMorning technical difficulties while talking about the royals? Hmm, suspicious….” Here are 13 words you’ll never hear a member of royal family say in public.
Meghan Markle is a sleeper agent for the US government
This one was clearly made up to give people a laugh. Actor Paul Bettany mentioned on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that Meghan Markle was working for the government. “I think that Meghan Markle might be a sleeper agent for the US government. The dad doing the photos thing, it’s like a false-flag event, I think the CIA’s involved – everybody. I think Piers Morgan’s involved.” Bettany, like many people, was just over the news being consumed by the royals and wanted to make a joke about it.
