The latest conspiracy theory out of QAnon is a stretch even for them after news outlets reported QAnon adherents have been spellbound by a post from an unidentified user who claims to be Princess Diana back from the dead and promising to reveal information.
Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of the newly-minted King Charles III and mother of Princes William and Harry.
Widely respected for her advocacy work on behalf of children, and those affected by cancer, mental illness and AIDS and landmines, Diana's premature death in a car wreck in Paris in 1997 led to extensive public mourning and global media attention. Her funeral—viewed by an estimated 2 to 2.5 billion people worldwide—was one of the biggest televised events in history.
But a post from "Diana" currently being disseminated on Telegram, Reddit, and Facebook promises to reveal information in the "upcoming months" that "will shake your bones" including who actually died in the car accident that killed the woman former British Prime Minister Tony Blair once referred to as "The People's Princess."
The post is accompanied by a badly photoshopped image that gives Diana—who died at 36— a more aged appearance.
You can see it for yourself below.
The post reads:
"My name is Diana, Princess Diana, as some of you may remember me as."
"I spent 25 years of my life hiding, being scared, not having anyone to talk to. I did it for my children and for the people of the world."
"What I'm about the [sic] reveal in the upcoming months will shake your bones!"
"Who died in the car accident?"
"Who ordered for me to be killed?"
"Who saved my life and gave a shelter?"
"This is all bigger than you think, you will not believe your eyes when I publish all of the information I have."
"In exactly 10 days I will go LIVE and share the truth. Be aware of what side of the fence your [sic] on and who your [sic] following and trusting."
The conspiracy and many spelling and grammar errors garnered criticism and mockery for QAnon and its followers online.
The Princess Diana conspiracy is only the latest conspiracy about the royal family QAnon adherents have disseminated.
Last week, QAnon followers were soundly mocked after they claimed King Charles III somehow made Donald Trump the President of the United States when he signed an oath to uphold the security of the Church of Scotland.
Nothing in British protocol remotely affects American politics, but that didn't stop a QAnon Telegram channel from insisting Charles signed "a proclamation stating that Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election and is the rightful President by law."
The message went on to threaten war between the United States and England if Democratic President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris do not leave the White House within 48 hours.
Like all conspiracies alleging former President Trump will one day be reinstated, it did not come to pass.
