The Theory About Meghan Markle's Appearance At Windsor That's Running Wild On Twitter

All eyes are on the royal family following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8. As tributes for the 96-year-old monarch poured in, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, shared a loving message in honor of her legacy. "In loving memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II," read a message posted to the couple's Archewell Foundation website

Prince Harry also shared a more personal message to his grandmother and explained that he is "forever grateful" for her impact. "Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings—from my earliest childhood memories with you," he wrote.

Days after the queen's passing, the duke and duchess reunited with William, Prince of Wales, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, to observe tributes for the late monarch. The group arrived at Windsor Castle together, marking their first unified public appearance since 2020. However, internet sleuths are now picking apart the royal affair and have suggested a bizarre theory about Markle's visit with the royal family.

Some think Meghan Markle recorded her visit

Following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's return to Windsor Castle on September 10, social media users have suggested that the former actor secretly recorded her visit. The theory began to run wild after one user pointed out what they believed was a recording device hiding under Markle's black dress, on her front hip. "I can't believe she is recording this. She is just a vile and toxic woman. I hope King Charles has told Harry she is not to come to the funeral," the person tweeted

However, sources close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have adamantly denied the strange theory. "This is insane and actually damaging to her. Of course she was not wearing a mic," the insider told Page Six.

Markle also became a topic of conversation, following an awkward exchange with a royal aide who attempted to carry a floral bouquet for her. In a clip posted to Twitter, Markle can be seen initially denying the help, but eventually handing over the flowers to another helper.

Social media sleuths battle to prove conspiracy

Of course, there are a few holes with this conspiracy theory. Such as: Why would Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, be nefariously wearing a recording device? To sell the conversations she had with the grieving public to somebody? To use it for future blackmail purposes? To pass it on to Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and other reptilian Illuminati members? Usually, the most straightforward answer is the right one.

Still, rumors persist, including the theory Meghan had the supposed mic for her reported Netflix series with Prince Harry. Although Meghan wouldn't confirm or deny the speculation of a reality show when chatting with The Cut in August, she did express hope she'd be able to finally open up in a personal manner. "The piece of my life I haven't been able to share, that people haven't been able to see, is our love story," she elaborated. 

Although the box shape does seem similar to the mics reality stars wear, it's a bit of a stretch to assume any production company and Meghan would go that far.

Others jump to Meghan's defense

It's fair to argue Twitter offers perfect insight into why Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, decided to quit The Firm and move away from Britain. The hidden recorder conspiracy theory around Meghan is the latest in a long history of bile toward the actor-turned-philanthropist-documentary maker.

The bright side for Meghan and Harry? There are plenty of folks in their corner, too. "We've had enough of the Markle bashing to last a lifetime," one user said about the strange story. "It needs to come to an end," while someone else said, "I'm not a fan of the way they've behaved but I truly feel this particular accusation is unfair. Don't even think she'd steep that low."

So some might say it's little wonder why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were (totally) straight outta Heathrow airport on the first flight to LAX.
