In a conversation with the Sun, Silva shared that his video should end all the “wild rumours”. He added that when he spotted the Princess of Wales at Windsor, she "looked relaxed".

"I'm not so much shocked that these comments have continued, I'm just confused how exactly they can continue," he told the Sun.

"This is a video clearly showing her and Prince William. I saw them with my own eyes. It was a completely relaxed situation," he added.

He further added, "What more do you need to lay off her? I thought after this was released, they'd go quiet. But these people are so invested in the drama now. They've put so much time and energy into these rumours and lies that they can't pull the plug".

What are these conspiracy theories about Kate Middleton on social media?

The royal's absence from public appearances since January has sparked several rumours on social media. While some expressed concern about her health, others speculated that her absence was due to the state of her marriage. A few also rumoured that Prince William is having an affair with Rose Hanbury. The Marchioness of Cholmondeley later announced through her lawyers that "the rumours are completely false".

The rumours only compounded after news agencies recalled a picture of the Princess of Wales and her kids, reportedly captured by Prince William, citing that it had been manipulated.

In February, Kingston Palace stated that the royal was absent from her duties and public appearances due to "planned abdominal surgery."
