Being popular royals, Prince William and Kate Middleton will often find themselves the subjects of various rumors and speculations. For instance, there have been speculations going on for months that there might be a rift between them and their in-laws, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

But, feuding between William and Harry rumors are a bit tame compared to the more outrageous ones about the Duchess of Cambridge. For example, one of the bizarre conspiracy theories put forth was that Kate did not actually give birth to her second child Princess Charlotte.

One highly creative conspiracy theorist once claimed that William and Kate used a surrogate mother to conceive and eventually give birth to Charlotte, according to a report by Closer. The report added that to achieve the appearance of a pregnant Kate, the duchess had to use a fake belly.

“It was a surrogate mother who gave birth but not her,” the theorist was previously quoted by a Russian publication, Closer reported. “Kate must have been wearing a fake belly showing to the people that she was pregnant.”

“She did not give birth, I am sure,” another theorist was quoted by Komsomolskaya Pravda. “There is no special maternal look in her eyes - this natural thing is not visible.”

However, royal family fans do not believe that the notion of hiring a surrogate for Charlotte would even enter Kate’s mind. While giving birth is painful, the ordeal is part of the total experience as a mother and it’s unthinkable for a healthy woman like the duchess to just give it up.

“Most women I know talk about how joyous their pregnancy was,” David Stewart wrote on Quora. “There was pain involved and a lot of inconveniences even a lot of sickness in some cases, but they were making a life inside them and wouldn't have swapped the experience for the world.”

Meanwhile, other fans point to the fact that all the signs of pregnancy were there. “What a question, Catherine was pregnant with all three of her children, the proof if needed was that she suffered from chronic morning sickness which incapacitated her through all three pregnancies ,another factor she stood on the steps of maternity hospital a few hours after giving birth to each of her children with a mummy tummy which could not have been fabricated,” Quora user Maureen Steward wrote.
