Man Responsible for Filming Kate Middleton in Windsor Slams Public Response to Video

Kate Middleton

As conspiracy theories continue to swirl around Kate Middleton, the man who filmed the princess and her husband, Prince William, during their recent outing is speaking out.

Nelson Silva, the man reported to be behind the clip, spoke with The Sun about the situation, stating that he saw her "with my own eyes" as she walked around Windsor Farm Shop near her home.

He went on to call the people buying into the conspiracy theories "delusional," adding, "What more do you need to lay off her?”

Another witness who reportedly saw the royal couple at the shop told the publication, "After all the rumours that had been going round I was stunned to see them there."

The Princess of Wales smiled as she walked beside William in black leggings and a sweatshirt. Her husband wore jeans, a dark blue jacket and a baseball cap, per the footage.

After the video was first released, many still questioned if it was real. Some claimed it was a lookalike named Heidi Agan, while others thought it was an old clip as they believed to have spotted holiday decorations in the background.

The most recent comments to come from Kate were in response to the backlash over her U.K. Mother's Day photo, which was discovered to be edited.

A statement allegedly from the princess, shared to her and William's X account, read, "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing. I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused."

After she first shared the photo, the internet went wild breaking it down in detail and noticed a few things in the image that were altered. Around that same time, news agencies began pulling the photo from circulation.

This week, there were also allegations of a security breach at the London Clinic—where Kate had surgery—with employees reportedly trying to access her medical records.
