Stuck in a Kate Middleton rabbit hole? The all-time wildest Royal Family conspiracy theories

Remember when everyone thought the Queen was reincarnated as Trisha Paytas’ baby??


Right now, the world is in meltdown over the apparent missing Princess of Wales Kate Middleton. Neither she nor her family have been seen by the public since Christmas Day and she was never pictured entering or leaving hospital for her abdominal surgery. This has, naturally, sent most of the internet into a spiral questioning her welfare and whereabouts.

The Palace has confirmed she is well, but the Royal Family has been involved in several conspiracies by all your favourite tinfoil hat wearers for years. Whether it’s your Princess Diana obsessives theorising over her death or more jokey theories, here are all the unhinged and crackpot Royal Family conspiracy theories from over the years:

All the Kate Middelton theories right now

Log onto Twitter right now and all you’ll see is people theorising where Kate Middleton is after she hasn’t been seen since Christmas Day. Prince William yesterday cancelled an appearance due to a “personal matter” and there were no pictures of her going into or leaving the hospital.

One theory includes the Spanish press coma theory where Spanish journalist Concha Calleja claimed on her show Fiesta a “reputable” palace source informed her that Kate Middleton has been in an induced coma. The palace completely denies this saying it was “ludicrous and not factchecked by Kensington Palace, and then saying to The Times earlier this month “It’s total nonsense. No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household. It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: it’s absolutely not the case.”

Other, obviously joking theories, suggest she’s going on Celebrity Big Brother or she’s been at the viral Glasgow Willy Wonka experience.

The Trisha Paytas saga

God what a time this was. But, if you’ve somehow missed it, there’s a longstanding conspiracy theory online where people are convinced that the Queen was reincarnated and reborn as YouTuber Trisha Paytas’ baby. Yeah, you did read that right. Basically, controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas went into labour with her first child, Malibu Barbie on the 8th September 2022, the same day Queen Elizabeth II died. Because of the timing of the two events, people came up with the wild theory that Trisha Paytas was giving birth to the Queen reincarnate.
