Kate Middleton could not have just given birth when she emerged from the Lindo Wing on Saturday, according to Russian media.
The Russian 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 the way she did 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.”
Others claimed that Kate Middleton had not given birth to the new princess herself.
One 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.”
“She did not give birth, I am sure,” said one.
“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.
“First of all, she is too big for a newborn, and secondly, the face is smooth and pale.”
Actually, a few days earlier, on 28 April, or Tuesday night, a tweet announcing the birth of new baby “Princess Charlotte” was later denounced by Kensington Palace as a “fake”.
Despite no news having been announced of the Duchess of Cambridge going into labour, news organisations and well-wishers alike then leapt upon the “fake” news, adding more credibility to the Russian claims.
One news source even elaborated, saying: “Four days overdue with her second child, the Duchess of Cambridge was induced but fortunately the delivery was without complications.”
