Lately, the British Royal Family has encountered a fair bit of public scrutiny, and conspiracy theories are piling up left and right.

Yesterday, the spotlight was on King Charles, as rumors about his passing gained momentum on the internet. These rumors were propagated by various accounts, including some with 'verified' blue badges, leading to widespread dissemination and confusion among the public. However, the breaking news was quickly debunked.

Now the lens once again points at Kate and William.

Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, has notably been out of the public eye since January, reportedly due to stomach surgery.

This absence has sparked widespread speculation and rumors, which were further fueled by the Royal Family's distribution of a photoshopped image featuring Middleton with her children. The Royal Family later clarified that the image was indeed photoshopped but by the Princess herself. Such actions have only served to intensify public curiosity and concern regarding her well-being.

Recently, photographs of Kate and William enjoying a day at a farmer's market near their Windsor residence, Adelaide Cottage, were published. These images quickly became front-page news for British newspapers.

An eyewitness at the farm shop, located just a mile from their home, expressed surprise at seeing them, noting the couple looked "happy and healthy."

"After all the rumors that had been going around, I was stunned to see them there. Kate was out shopping with William, and she looked happy and well," the observer remarked.

However, the internet has since cast doubt on the authenticity of these pictures.

"Why do these big media channels want us to believe these are Kate and William? But as we can see, they are not Kate or William," one X (formerly Twitter) user wrote.

Another added, "The Sun's front page features the headline 'Great to see you again, Kate' along with a video released yesterday. Not Kate?"

"Stop it right now. That woman is not Kate Middleton," another comment read.

As rumors continue to spread on social media, has reached out to the British Royal Family for a statement regarding their approach to handling such rumors.
