The neverending conspiracy theories surrounding Kate Middleton and cancer

Kate Middleton’s revelation that she has a tumor has sparked a surge of conspiracy theories surrounding her, despite some users on the internet apologizing for their previous comments. The #Kategate hashtag has seen a peak of 400 mentions, with more activity on platforms like X, Instagram, and TikTok.

A video posted on TikTok, viewed 200 thousand times in one day, suggests that the announcement about the future British queen’s illness may have been manipulated, potentially using artificial intelligence. The BBC has confirmed the authenticity of the video, stating that Kate was filmed by a crew from the broadcaster.

Professor Quassim Cassam, an expert on conspiracy theories at the University of Warwick, explains that evidence disproving conspiracy theories often fuels them instead. He believes that conspiracy theories persist because evidence is seen as part of the conspiracy, making them hard to stop. Meanwhile, Whitney Phillips, an expert on digital platforms and ethics at the University of Oregon, notes that some people spread conspiracy theories for entertainment without regard for the impact on those involved.

Cassam predicts that rumors about Kate Middleton will fade as new conspiracy theories emerge on different topics. The cycle of conspiracy theories constantly evolving and changing subjects contributes to the ongoing dissemination of false information and speculation.
