Photos and footage from Queen Elizabeth II's funeral of Meghan Markle have led some royal fans to believe a wild theory about her seat placement.

BBC footage of the funeral showed Meghan to be hidden behind a large candle, with other royals, including Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie and Princess Anne, clearly visible, leading some royal fans believing it to have been intentional by the organisers.

"I don't want to be a conspiracy theorist but that candle is totally blocking the view of Meghan," one Twitter user wrote.

"On the sad occasion of Her Majesty’s funeral, I am comforted in the knowledge Meghan’s head is obscured by a candle," another added.

"Hiding Meghan Markle behind a massive candle was a genius call," a third said.

"The candle being directly in front of Meghan’s face when she’s being filmed, was that on purpose," someone else questioned.

"Note the strategic candle placement to block out Meghan’s face," yet another wrote.

"I think the spot was chosen to make [Harry and Meghan] incredibly difficult to see," one user added. "The one camera shot that’s high and close enough to view them has a massive a** candle in the middle of it that completely obscures Meghan. No way that wasn’t deliberate."

Meghan arrived at Westminster Abbey in a car with Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and stood alongside Kate, Princess of Wales, and her two eldest children George, nine, and Charlotte, seven, before taking her seat with Harry, behind King Charles III and his siblings.

Harry followed the Queen's coffin on foot from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, walking next to his brother, Prince William.
