Kate Middleton looked too beautiful to have just given birth when she emerged from the Lindo Wing, according to a bizarre conspiracy theory that has emerged in Russia, reported Mirror. 

Pro-Kremlin newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda carried the claims which were made by various Russian women.


They said that it was “impossible” for the Duchess of Cambridge to look so good immediately after the birth, also questioning whether the baby was in fact born days before.

One woman said, “If she really gave birth naturally, it was surely some days ago.”

Another added, “She gave birth three days ago. They reported it only now. Look at the baby – she does not look like a newborn at all.

“She is at least three days old. There is nothing which would help a woman, even if she gave birth with the help of best doctors, stand up five hours after giving birth – and leave the clinic on her feet.”


The claims became even more ridiculous when one woman said, “It was a surrogate mother who gave birth but not her. Kate must have been wearing a fake belly showing to the people that she was pregnant. It is just not real to walk yourself several hours after birth and wave to the public in white dress.

“If you ever gave birth, try to recall yourself in three or four hours later. Even if the birth was easy, women just want to sleep and sleep for several hours. This is a fairy tale of a family of show offs.”

Another wise lady said, “There is no special maternal look in her eyes. This natural thing is not visible. Look at Diana. This Kate is just an actress from Buckingham Palace theatre. She never gave birth.”


Another said, “I thought this too – that the baby is at least 7-10 days old.”

    After giving birth to my second I was up bathed dressed ready to go home in a couple of hours. When you have a first born you want to get home as soon as possible. The claim is poppycock…… Recommend

    May be Russian medical practices are still those followed in the West 100 years back. These days women in developed world are happy, cheerful and fresh within hours of giving birth. In any case it was her second baby.Recommend

    I left hospital after my 3rd baby was born within 4 hours, this is not unusual. And Kate did not leave immediately after as this states, it was several hours. Its best to be up on your feet, as soon as you can.Recommend

    All three posters, ignored the fact that the newborn does not look just a few hours old. Even the healthiest babies dont look like that. I hope this argument will break the internet :DRecommend

    Anybody can tell that is NOT a new born – how come Kate’s belly deflated at times? How come she has shown no real visible signs of pregnancy? How come green-eyed Kate and blue-eyed William have a kid with DARK BROWN eyes? Well?

    And please, no responses from paid astroturfers who will write it’s so normal to not even look pregnant and give birth to a hulking 8 pounder. Enough, people, enough!!!!Recommend

    It’s so funny that you wrote about Russian newspaper and photo which has been attached is from French newspaper.
    It’s real talent to show news from Russia in such way. That Russia is an aggressive country and only bad articles about different countries and people are publishing there. It’s absolutely crazy that you do this “news war”. Do you have any evidence that it was written in Russian newspaper if you even don’t have a picture from that newspaper. The biggest part of Russians respect Royal family and UK. It’s really political game to show Russia like this.Recommend
