See the main conspiracy theories about the death of the queen

London – The history of the monarchy has been marked by conspiracy theories since medieval times, and it would be no different in the death of Queen Elizabeth, whose cause has not yet been – and perhaps never will be – informed to the public.

On the day of the funeral, Twitter is making an alert in the UK about the main fake news surrounding the Queen’s death.

Since she died on February 8, speculation about the cause of death has been the most diverse, although the well-behaved British media has avoided touching on the subject.

But conspiracy makers also make things up about funerals and burials, prompting independent fact-checking services or those run by news agencies to try to disprove the fabrications.

Lead Stories, which monitors fake news on social media, clarified that a video allegedly showing the queen’s open casket is fake.

The funeral urn remained closed during the entire time of public exhibition.

The cancellation of any funeral, burial or cremation other than that of Queen Elizabeth on September 19 was another topic that circulated on the networks by authors of conspiracy theories.

The Full Fact agency was one of those that denied it.

Another invention is an image in which a phrase of support for Donald Trump appears on the banner that the queen used when receiving the former president in London.

The original image does not have the phrase, but the authors of the forgery may be admirers who did not like the former president not being invited to the funeral.

The tributes to the monarch in the streets were marked by peace, with few incidents and a tolerance of the police even with the ban on camping in public parks.

But a conspiracy theory took advantage of the Queen’s Guard image to create a fake video with nearly 400,000 views showing a tourist being attacked.

The fact-checking agency Snoopes denied it.

Even Queen Elizabeth’s corgi dogs have not escaped conspiracy theorists. A Facebook post with a photo shows what their arrival in London would be like.

In this case, the photo is authentic, but it was taken in 1993 and has nothing to do with the queen’s death or the fate of the animals, which will be in the care of son Andrew.

Did anyone rejoice over the queen’s death? Although the most radical do not forgive the royal family and Elizabeth II for the past of slavery and colonialism, many anti-monarchists defend the end of the regime but show sympathy for the sympathetic figure of the monarch.

One of the fake videos that circulated on the networks and is part of the Twitter alert is a fake showing Irish people dancing with happiness.

The AFP clarification reports that the video was originally posted on TikTok last January and has nothing to do with the Queen’s death.
