Kate Middleton, out of the public eye since December 2023 for a planned surgery, has got the internet brewing with crazy theories about her whereabouts.

Kate Middleton has undergone a planned abdominal surgery, Kensington Palace announced on January 17. While she hoped to keep her medical details private, it was said that she would be coming back home after a 10-14 day hospital stay.

Having stayed out of the public eye since December 2023, Middleton has got the internet brewing with crazy theories about her whereabouts. When her husband Prince William pulled out of a royal event on Tuesday, citing a “personal matter”, it led to questions being asked whether Kate Middleton's health had worsened.

These speculations were quickly put to rest when a royal source reached out to numerous publications to confirm that she was indeed “doing well”. As soon as this news came, internet users began asking even more frenzied questions about Kate Middleton whereabouts.

Conspiracy theories

From undergoing the BBL cosmetic procedure to growing out bangs or grappling with a hair colour disaster, the Kate Middleton conspiracy theory has us believing that she's everywhere but nowhere.

X (formerly Twitter) users have also considered her to have channelled her inner Disney princess era and enrolled into “the princess protection program” (referring to the Demi Lovato-Selena Gomez starrer 2009 film). Or could she be prepping for a bombshell “reveal on Masked Singer”? These crazy theories have no end.

Another set of royal enthusiasts also see the potential in this alleged Kate Middleton missing conspiracy to become the plot of The Crown Season 7.

With all said and done, another tweet has also kicked off a nostalgic heartbreak, reporting of the One Direction reunion. The 1D boys are supposedly now off “wandering around London singing the 2010s classic hit “What Makes You Beautiful” in the hope they can find her”.

Some netizens have even claimed to have spotted her at the disastrous Willy Wonka experience in Glasglow, which appears to look ‘like a Meth Lab’, undoubtedly leaving parents outraged and demanding refunds.

Regardless of how incongruously fitted she may seem at these events worldwide, these conspiracy theories keep getting weirder. If Kate Middleton wasn't already severely exhausted from her medical treatment, she's probably having a crisis now looking at these internet trends.
