Read on for seven of the most fascinating conspiracy theories about kings, queens, and princes:
1. Princess Diana’s death in a car accident was orchestrated by the British royal family
Perhaps the most widespread modern conspiracy theory about the British royal family concerns the death of Princess Diana in 1997.
An adored member of the royal family, Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles in 1981 to become Princess Diana.
Known as “The People’s Princess,” Diana was beloved by the subjects of the British crown.
Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996, and Diana’s life came to a devastating end on August 31, 1997,
The Associated Press later reported that a slew of international investigations concluded
that both Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed had passed away from injuries following a tragic drunk driving accident.
Shortly after, theories emerged that her death was actually an assassination —
some even claiming that it was the dirty work of Prince Philip, another member of the royal family,
or even Prince Charles himself. The motive? To prevent Diana from marrying Fayed, a Muslim, and giving birth to his child,
Although the princess had speculated in a letter about her being in danger, according to the Associated Press,
there is no evidence that she was pregnant at the time or contemplating marriage to Fayed.
2.Harry’s marriage to Meghan is a plot by the UK to win back control over USA
One recent, if light-hearted, conspiracy theory claims that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage is part of a larger British ploy.
Greg Pollowitz, this take about the couple last year, prompting responses from around the world:
“Prince Harry’s kids will be Americans, “What if one grows up to be president and is in line for the throne at the same time?
Brits are playing long-ball here, but it’s a smart move. They want America back and this is how they’ll do it.”
3. The British monarchs are actually alien lizards…Royal Conspiracy Theories
the world is controlled by leaders descended from a race of alien lizards, so it’s no surprise that he claims the British royal family,
Icke claims he has eyewitness evidence of this — but no one besides him and his diehard followers give it any credence.
4. Queen Elizabeth I was actually a man, Royal Conspiracy Theories
According to this theory, Queen Elizabeth I fell ill and died as a child. In order to replace the dead girl,
They passed off as her to her father, King Henry VIII. The boy then remained in Elizabeth’s position for the rest of his life.
5. Jack the Ripper was actually Queen Victoria’s grandson
In the years after the infamous Jack the Ripper murders took place in London in the late 1800s,
some suspected Prince Albert Victor (also known as Prince Eddy) of having committed the brutal killings, but nothing was ever proven.
A surgeon who said he knew the identity of the killer died in 1970, and claimed Jack the Ripper was “a scion of a noble family.”
The surgeon’s son burned his father’s papers before anyone could read them,
so the mystery of Jack the Ripper’s identity may never be solved.
6. One member of the Russian monarchy escaped execution
One of the most enduring is that one member of the Russian Romanov dynasty,
the young princess Anastasia, survived the execution of her entire family by the Bolsheviks.
Legend has it that she escaped death by firing squad by sewing jewelry into her dress that made it bulletproof —
later escaped never to be heard from again.
DNA reanalysis in 2007 confirmed that her body had been buried near those of her family members in 1918.
7. The Man in the Iron Mask, was of royal blood
a popular story in France, conspiracy theories abounded about King Louis XIV’s most famous and mysterious prisoner.
