This is not an image of a naked child “escaping” from Buckingham Palace
3rd Sep 2020
This image shows a naked child trying to “escape” Buckingham Palace.
This is not true. It is an image from a viral hoax created to promote a TV drama.
An image that appears in multiple Facebook posts is claimed to show a naked boy escaping from Buckingham Palace. The text on the image says "I suppose this photo of a naked boy escaping Buckingham Palace is just more conspiracy theory?"
The image itself is a screenshot from a video that has been circulating since 2019, which claims the footage is evidence that the world is "controlled by paedophiles".
This is incorrect.
