Just hours after Russian media reported that King Charles had died, King was observed this morning in London, heading from Windsor Castle to Clarence House.

The 75-year-old monarch, who is still receiving cancer treatment, left his Berkshire home and traveled to the capital in the back of a royal limousine.

Following reports in the Russian media that King Charles III had passed away, the British embassy in Moscow was compelled to issue an official statement yesterday reaffirming his continued life.

In an unexplained flood of posts, a number of Russian news websites and the social media accounts that linked to them announced that the King had passed away from issues related to his cancer, citing anonymous “media” sources.

On social media, a photo of an obviously fake “Buckingham Palace” statement announcing Charles’ “unexpected death” went viral.

It comes after Prince William and the Princess of Wales were seen on Saturday visiting a farm store close to their Adelaide Cottage residence in Windsor. The princess was spotted looking ‘happy, healthy and relaxed’ 

The outing should dispel ludicrous conspiracy ideas over her health, according to a royal source.

The fake news was covered by a number of well-known publications, but it wasn’t immediately evident if this was a mistake on their part or if Vladimir Putin’s propaganda apparatus was directly responsible.

After Vladimir Putin’s ‘win’ in a ‘rigged’ presidential election was criticized in Britain and other Western countries, the grotesque spectacle involving the monarch took place.

To point out that the claims were fake, the British embassy’s Telegram channel published a note in Russian.

Shortly after the British Embassy in Ukraine released a similar statement, the announcement declared, “Reports about the death of King Charles III of Great Britain are fake.”

Pro-Putin outlets such as RIA, Sputnik, Readkovka, and Mash were among the first to publish the bogus claim; however, they later corrected their stories.

The media outlet Mash reported, “Britain’s King Charles III has died, Buckingham Palace reports. The son of Elizabeth II ascended the throne less than a year ago – the coronation took place on May 6, 2023. He was 75 years old.”

It updated to state “the message turned out to be fake” and to mention that, “Let us remember that a few months ago he was diagnosed with cancer.”

However, the site later claimed: ‘The fake news about the death of Charles III quickly spread and was just as quickly debunked.

“The King of Great Britain is alive and continues to go about his business. At least that’s what Buckingham Palace says.”

Even Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson for Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, joined the debate by posting: “London looks pathetic.”

According to pro-Kremlin BAZA internet media, “The Russian media reported the death of British King Charles III with reference to a document allegedly published by Buckingham Palace. The screenshot of the message about the death of Charles III turned out to be fake.”

The fake palace announcement was dated today and said, “The King passed away unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.”

“A number of media and Telegram channels reported the death of the British King Charles III – with reference to a fake statement from Buckingham Palace,” the independent outlet Meduza said.

“A screenshot of the statement, which became a news source, is provided, in particular, by the BAZA Telegram channel. This statement is not on the website or social networks of the royal family.”

Buckingham Palace’s press office denied RIA Novosti’s rumors of King Charles III’s death, revising its earlier claim that it was based on “rumors”.
