It’s nearly impossible to visit any social media network right now and not hear about Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales and a member of the British royal family.

From conspiracy theories to rabbit holes of uncertainty, news networks and Kate Middleton fans are all asking the same question…

According to lengthy reports from multiple sources, Kate Middleton has taken monthslong absence from her royal duties, reportedly due to planned abdominal surgery. As time passes without a Kate Middleton public appearance, speculation and rumors are swirling.

To make matters worse, on March 10, 2024, the waves of speculation increased as the first official photo was released with Kate and Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Unfortunately, the picture has been proven to be manipulated.

An apology now resides on The Prince and Princess of Wales X account (formerly Twitter), seemingly from Catherine (“C”), stating:

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. C

As you can imagine, Catherine’s followers aren’t buying the story.

Speculations about the Princess’s health, relationship with William, Prince of Wales, and beyond are reaching a new height on social media, with fans pleading to know where she is with Christmas day, December 25, 2023, being her last appearance in the public eye.

Disney Fans Have the Answers

Disney fans aren’t going quietly about the situation! Instead, they are filling the internet with sarcasm, rumors, and their own theories.

@_rskid26 tweets that the Royals providing updates about Kate Middleton is comparable to the iconic scene in Disney Pixar Toy Story (1995) when Sherrif Woody tries to show the others toys that Buzz Lightyear is actually okay with his amputated arm:

@THEnotoriousJ0D includes his own photoshopped image, noting, “Everyone’s blathering on about a conspiracy, but here’s Kate Middleton at Disney this afternoon.”

Others continue to imply she’s been photoshopped with her family at Disney World.

@somestuffisaid adds, “New Kate Middleton image just dropped. I find this one just as suspicious as the first.”  You’ll see in the tweet below Kate’s face photoshopped into the EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth attraction film:

Remember Disney’s Princess Protection Program movie from 2009 with Selena Gomez? @DisneyReact shows an altered film image with, “We royals know where Kate Middleton is.”

@DomajorReminor believes there is a Disney twist on Prince Charming in the works, stating:

“Prince William & Kate Middleton fairytale love is the only one where prince throws his sickly wife under the bus; makes her laughingstock around the world to save his public image. That sounds like a new Disney twist on Prince Charming. #PrinceWilliamIsALiar #PrinceWilliamEXPOSED”

And lastly… has Kate moved away from places such as Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, and Windsor Castle to live in a Disney Castle? A viral satire video has over 320,000 views and counting:

Royal Family’s Authority Takes a Hit

Despite Disney fans’ attempt to make light of the situation, there is still an endless buzz and concern about Princess Kate.

Rolling Stones recently reported, “The memes and conspiracy theories about Kate Middleton’s whereabouts might seem silly, but the royal family’s authority has taken a major hit.”

The royal family has recently faced the cancer diagnosis of King Charles III, the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and the disruption of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, leaving their royal roles.

Until Kate is back in the spotlight, we suspect the questions, jokes, and concerns will keep increasing.
