Truth : Death Did Not Appear At King Charles’ Coronation!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why!

Fact #1 : Viral Video Is Genuine

Some people are claiming that the video was altered by Russian / Chinese agents to make a mockery of the British royal family. Others are claiming that the video was taken down to “scrub out” Death / the Grim Reaper.

That’s not true – the video is genuine, and was part of the live telecast to more than 20 million people. The livestream was not removed to be edited either.

Fact #2 : This Viral Photo Was Edited

This photo showing Death / the Grim Reaper with a scythe was edited from the original screenshot.

In the original screenshot, the figure is only carrying a staff or rod. The fake news creator added a blade to the end of that staff / rod, to make it appear like it was Death / the Grim Reaper.

Fact #3 : It Was A Verger, Not Death / Grim Reaper

Newsweek settled the matter by simply contacting Westminster Abbey, which identified the figure as a verger – a member of the abbey community who assists with religious services, but is not a member of the clergy.

A verger is sometimes seen carrying a rod before a bishop or dean as his symbol of office. That could explain what the verger was carrying – a rod, and not a scythe.

So no, it was not Death or the Grim Reaper, but simply a lay person who was helping out during the coronation.

This is just another example of fake news about the British royal family, although I have to point that most people did not really believe that it was Death or the Grim Reaper.

However, here are other examples of genuine fake news about the British royal family…
