LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Since her death on September 8, a number of fantastic conspiracy theories have circulated about Queen Elizabeth II. Among them, the most popular has been the one that claimed she secretly knighted former US President Donald Trump.

This theory made the rounds after an image said to be from Trump’s Truth Social handle went viral shortly after the Queen’s death. The image featured one of his posts from the social media platform, which read: “I never told anyone but her [Queen Elizabeth II] knighted me privately.”

His knighted name is Sir Lies Alot.” Another user joked about the whole incident with a tweet saying, “As believable as it is, the story about Trump now on Truth Social claims he is secretive Knighted by Queen Elizabeth is 100% FALSE. But hats off to whoever started this rumor because I nearly spit my morning coffee out laughing.”
