A pro-Kremlin Russian newspaper has claimed that the royal baby was born several days before her birth was officially announced. The newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda quoted many Russian women expressing a similar opinion. Some even suggested that a surrogate gave birth to the royal baby while the Duchess of Cambridge was only wearing a fake pregnancy belly.

Royal Baby Was Born Days Before Official Announcement: Russians

The baby was ‘at least 7-10 days old’

Kate Middleton gave birth to the royal baby girl at St. Mary’s Hospital in London on Saturday. But the theory emerging from Russia suggests that Kate “looked too beautiful to have just given birth” when she came out of the Lindo Wing. One woman told the Russia newspaper, “She gave birth three days ago. They reported it only now. Look at the baby – she does not look like a newborn at all.”

Another woman said that there was nothing that could help a woman stand up just five hours after giving birth and leave the hospital on her own feet. Even if the birth was ridiculously easy, women want to sleep for several hours. Another said that the royal baby was “at least 7-10 days old.” Yet another woman went as far as saying that it was a surrogate who gave birth, not Kate. She claimed that Kate Middleton was wearing a fake belly.

Royal baby named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana

Olga Perovskaya, a Moscow-based gynecologist, described Kate’s appearance as a “heroic deed.” Russia conspiracy theories aside, the royal baby has been named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, according to a tweet from Kensington Palace. The name honors the baby’s great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth and her late grandmother Princess Diana. The daughter of Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will be known as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

Elizabeth, Charlotte, and Diana were among the most favored names by bookies for the royal baby, who is the fifth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth.
