Meghan Markle conspiracy theorists appear to be on their last dying breath as they try to ‘prove’ the new royal baby is ‘fake’.
Ever since the Duchess of Sussex announced she was pregnant in October, internet trolls have accused Meghan of wearing a series of prosthetic bumps as a cover for a surrogate child.
Even now, after Prince Harry announced the news of his first child, they are using the hashtag #Megxit to discredit seventh-in-line to the throne.
The fuel for the fire is centred on the so far unknown location of the birth, and why Buckingham Palace announced Meghan had gone into labour at 2pm, when the baby was delivered eight hours earlier at 5.26am.
One person wrote: ‘Secret location, no medical team, announcement of labour hours after the birth, Scotland Yard escort that not a single person saw… WTF? Are they having us on?’
Another troll said: ‘Meggy, now that the baby is “born from the body” (the surrogate’s of course, not yours), are you going to continue cupping your stomach or are you going to learn a new trick while you “recover?” How is the surrogate btw? Is she allowed to show us the birth certificate?’
Some have claimed the lack of signatures from doctors on Harry and Meghan’s official notice outside Buckingham Palace is ‘evidence’ of a ‘dishonest’ baby announcement.
The notice was then compared with the ones put outside the palace after the birth of George, Charlotte and Louis, which were all hand signed by doctors present for each of the births, including Dr Guy Thorpe-Beeston, who appears on all three announcements.
Even the language of Baby Sussex’s notice was picked apart.
One person wrote on Twitter: ‘The words “share the news” implies the BRF [British Royal Family] was informed about the delivery rather than being a witness to the fact.’
However, some people believe the ‘Megxit’ conspiracy is in its final days, and will finally end once Meghan and Harry show their baby to the world tomorrow, as is expected.
One person slammed the trolls, writing: ‘Watching a conspiracy theory in its later stages with the Megxit people. Their working theory has been that Meghan was faking her pregnancy, either with a surrogate, or by sneaking in a fake baby at the last minute.
‘They took a false report that she was at Kensington Palace, and turned it into “She’s under house arrest at KP,” so that she couldn’t sneak away and grab a fake baby. OBVIOUSLY.
‘But now it seems like there’s an actual baby, what with Prince Harry saying so and acting suspiciously like a guy whose wife had a baby.’
Speaking outside Windsor Castle yesterday, Harry described how his baby boy ‘is absolutely to-die-for’.
He revealed that Meghan had given birth early on Monday morning and it was the ‘most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined’.
The as-yet-unnamed baby boy, who was overdue, was initially believed to have been born in the sanctuary of Frogmore Cottage – the Sussexes’ home on the Windsor Estate.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Meghan was taken to a London hospital by Harry and their security team.
The move was apparently so secret, even senior royals were not initially aware.
Meghan delivered her baby boy – an eighth great-grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh – at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 3oz.
She is believed to have given birth in the Portland Hospital, where Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were delivered.
