Sound The Alarms: There's Actual Video Footage Of Kate Middleton

Early on March 18, there were reports that Kate Middleton was spotted with Prince William at a Farm Shop, looking “happy and healthy.” The internet collectively said, “Sure, Jan.” At a time like this, who could possibly take “onlookers” word for it that Kate is looking and feeling easy, breezy, beautiful? However, later in the day, TMZ released actual video footage of Kate and William at said Farm Shop looking alive and well… which is really the bare minimum, I guess?

After months of speculation on Kate’s whereabouts and wellbeing, this very real video has people across the globe breathing a sigh of relief. According to TMZ, this video was taken on Saturday while Kate and Prince William were “visiting a business about a mile from their home in Windsor — known as the Windsor Farm Shop — where The Sun reported eyewitnesses saw them out and about this past weekend.”

One of the eyewitnesses who claims to have seen the royal pair with his own two eyes told TMZ, “I noticed a couple choosing loaves of bread, and the woman turned her face, and I felt like I had seen the face before. It was familiar. I knew it from somewhere.” He adds, “I went to my car, and as they came out of the shop, I just filmed them. I think they walked out through a gate out of the grounds. They just vanished, and I didn’t see a car. I just wanted to share footage with my family, and show just how normal they were.” 

Allow me to put on my tinfoil hat quickly. So, here’s where things feel off to me. An eyewitness… who presumably lives near Windsor and doesn’t live under an actual boulder… “felt like he had seen” Kate Middleton’s face before? Literally, what does that mean? Also, there was zero security or fanfare around them? There was so little attention drawn to the couple that he thought, hm, this lady looks “familiar”? Sorry! It’s giving AI-Generated 2.0.

It’s possible I’ve been spending too much time on TikTok. TMZ clearly knows where people’s heads are at and added to the article with the video, “BTW, for all the skeptics who might not believe, this was taken as it’s been relayed to us — we’ve delved into the metadata … and there’s no doubt, this was filmed on Saturday right near the Prince and Princess of Wales’ home in Windsor. So yes, it’s a legitimate video.”

The fact we’re living in a time when a disclaimer like this is needed is simply wild!
