Royal fans demolish Kate Middleton conspiracy theories and say sceptics should ‘go to Specsavers’

Online conspiracy theorists have gone wild over a video of the Prince and Princess of Wales out shopping on the weekend, but royal supporters have hit back amid worldwide controversy

Royal fans have laid into Twitter conspiracy theorists casting doubt on the most recent pictures of Kate Middleton.

People have been taking to social media in hot debate after video emerged of the Princess of Wales at a farm shop in Windsor with her family over the weekend. Footage released by The Sun showed Kate looking “relaxed” on the outing while she takes time off public duties in recovery from abdominal surgery earlier this year.

While the low-res image shows the Princess smiling and happy with William at the shop on Saturday – in what is the first time her face has been publicly seen since the Photoshop debacle – some still believe it’s not really her in the picture, with bizarre conspiracy theories circulating about body doubles and paid actors.

Now fans have bitten back at the so-called theorists, with one claiming they “need to go to Specsavers”. One posted on X, formerly Twitter, to write: “If you really don’t think this is Kate then you need to go to Specsavers … and probably go touch some grass.” A second wrote: “That’s the Princess of Wales alright! Kate is BACK.”

Another Twitter user said: “I am pleased to see that Kate Middleton is happy and healthy bouncing around on her latest dashed to the shops. My only question is… Was there a need for her to post a faked photo of herself with her children to celebrate Mother’s Day?”

The footage was captured by shopper Nelson Silva who spotted the royal couple outside the farm shop near to their home at Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Castle estate. Mr SIilva said the pair seemed “relaxed” on the trip, batting away rumours about the Princess as “nonsense”.

Mr Silva, 40, said he spotted the couple “choosing loaves of bread” at the shop when he recognised them. “The woman turned her face and I felt like I had seen the face before. It was familiar. I knew it from somewhere,” he told The Sun.

“I went to my car and as they came out of the shop I just filmed them. I think they walked out through a gate out of the grounds. They just vanished and I didn’t see a car.”

Her absence from the public sent rumour mills into overdrive online, with many speculating about her health and whereabouts. The release of the now-infamous doctored Mother’s Day picture showing her with her three children set gossip ablaze, with Kate releasing a rare apology for the glitches saying she did “occasionally experiment[ed] with editing”.

A public statement through the Kensington Royal social media accounts, with was signed off as ‘C’ to denote it was written by the princess personally, said: “Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused. I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day.”

Eagle-eyed fans had spotted several irregularities on the family portrait suggesting it had been doctored, including Princess Charlotte’s sleeve and skirt pocket and detailing on Prince Louis’s jumper.
