‘That’s Not Kate’! Fans Convinced New Video of Princess of Wales at Farm Shop is of ‘Body Double’

The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, made her first unofficial public appearance since her abdominal surgery, drawing both relief and renewed speculation among royal watchers.

Photographed alongside her husband, Prince William, at the Windsor Farm Shop, the sighting on Saturday sparked a flurry of reactions and conspiracy theories.

In the candid image and video published by The Sun, Middleton, 42, appeared healthy, relaxed, and engaged in conversation with Prince William, 41, as they exited the shop, her long brown hair flowing in the wind. However, despite the seemingly positive moment, doubts emerged as some conspiracy theorists alleged that the woman in the photo was in fact a body double—a claim that has gained traction amid recent controversies surrounding the royal family.

Notably, a Mother’s Day photo released on the couple’s official Instagram account featuring Middleton and their three children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—also stirred controversy.

Several prominent global news photo agencies issued warnings against using the image, citing potential alterations and manipulation. Associated Press, Getty Images, and Reuters advised media outlets to exercise caution, prompting questions about the authenticity of the photograph.

Middleton later took responsibility for the incident, acknowledging that she occasionally experimented with photo editing and expressing regret for any confusion caused. However, the episode further fuelled speculation about Middleton’s health and the nature of her medical procedure.

“Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing,” she wrote on social media. “I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused.”

Kensington Palace had disclosed Middleton’s abdominal surgery to the public on January 17, stating that she was unlikely to resume public duties until after Easter based on medical advice. Her prolonged absence from public life has since triggered widespread speculation and gossip on social media platforms.

As Middleton steps back into the public eye, observers remain divided, with some relieved to see her out and about, while others continue to question the authenticity of recent images and the narrative surrounding her health.

Amidst the ongoing controversies, Middleton’s return to public life serves as a reminder of the intense scrutiny faced by the royal family and the persistent speculation that often accompanies their every move.
