Conspiracy theory suggests King Charles's security have FAKE HANDS

Bizarre conspiracy theory that King Charles’ security team are using ‘fake hands’ spreads on TikTok – after a clip from walkabout at Cardiff Castle showing a bodyguard holding his arms perfectly still goes viral

  • Bizarre conspiracy theory has spread on TikTok about a member of Charles’ team
  • Online commenters suggested his equerry had ‘fake hands’ after watching clip
  • Member of security appeared to be holding his hands in a very still position  

A bizarre conspiracy theory has spread on TikTok that King Charles III’s security have fake hands after a video clip showed a team member holding his arms perfectly still. 

The new monarch, 73, took part in a walkabout outside Cardiff Castle last week, where social media users noticed a member of his team appeared to be holding his hands in a very specific position.

And one TikTok user shared the clip online, bizarrely suggesting it was evidence that the man must have fake hands. 

Millions have watched the clips on the social media platform, with remarks focusing on the man’s ‘strange’ hand movements and differences across grips.

Meanwhile another TikTok by user @jase_the_ace posits the peculiar theory using some footage of the UK’s new monarch outside Buckingham Palace. The viral clip has more than 27.2 million views.

However security expert  Will Geddes dismissed the claims, telling Metro: ‘They definitely aren’t fake hands: ‘I can understand why some people might have thought they were because of what looks like an incredibly tight grip but they definitely aren’t.’

The new monarch, 73, took part in a walkabout outside Cardiff Castle last week, where social media users noticed a member of his team appeared to be holding his hands in a very specific position 

The video first shows a man to the left of King Charles III – Major Johnny Thompson, the royal’s equerry – who is holding his hands together, one slotted over the other; the clip audio says this looks to be ‘inanimate’. 

It then introduces a man walking into frame, accusing one of his arms of looking ‘fake’ because while one hand is slightly open, the other is held tight in a fist.

The video also pointed out another man – thought to be a security guard – whose suit has a bulge in the jacket. 

Another clip from @kevhead22, from Cardiff Castle, showed a man who appeared to be part of the King’s team, whose hands remained in the same static position – elbows bent and one hand laid over the other – as the monarch greeted people outside the palace. 

 

Many of those on TikTok were left stunned by the claims, with some saying other commenters had ‘too much time on their hands’ 

The TikTok – which has 4.8 million views – was captioned: ‘What’s going on with the Bodyguard’s hands?’ 

And while some appeared to be convinced by the claims, others were quick to point out how ridiculous they were.

One user said: ‘Some people have way to much time on their hands.’

‘Looking way too much into this,’ another wrote. 

A third jokingly penned: ‘Guys are just blessed.’

Another said: ‘Why would they go through all this effort to conceal them having their hand on the gun, when they can just have their hand on it without hiding it?’

However others posited possible explanations, with one writing: ‘He has his hands like that Incase he has to react quickly, also they communicate a lot with hand signals so they keep their hands like that to not accidentally make a hand movement that the others would take as a signal.’

Another added that this potentially allows for the ‘fastest way’ to grab a weapon with ‘being alarming to the public’. 

Others also said this may be simply be a case of ‘different hand signals for different indicators’ to allow for ‘silent communication between the group’.

As King Charles ascends the throne, plans are beginning to emerge that show a somewhat reformed monarchy in the UK. 

It is expected the King will opt for a scaled-back coronation ceremony amid a cost-of-living crisis that has hit many families hard.

The new Prince of Wales is also expected to have a smaller investiture ceremony to formalise his new role.
