A source close to Meghan Markle today dismissed “insane” and “harmful” social media claims that she wore a microphone during her historic walk in Windsor with Harry, William and Kate.

The extraordinary claim was shared widely on Twitter due to a small rectangular mark on the waist of the Duchess of Sussex’s understated black dress.

Her critics began to wildly guess whether she was wearing a microphone, suggesting it was due to the pair’s $100 million deal with Netflix.

But amid an online response from her supporters claiming it was clearly just a series of small pleats at her waist, a friend of the former Suits star also dismissed it.

A source close to Meghan told Page Six: ‘This is insane and actually damaging to her. She wasn’t wearing a microphone, of course.’

“It’s literally a crease in her dress,” commented one Twitter user. Another wrote: ‘You are pathetic’ to those who thought she was wearing a recording device, beeper or microphone.

Wild theory erupts about a device hidden in Meghan Markles

A rectangular fold at the waist of Meghan’s black dress led many critics to suspect she was wearing a microphone.

“What is Meghan hiding under her dress?” one person tweeted.

“The waist circumference definitely looks like a microphone suit,” said another.

Others wondered if she was shooting the moment for her upcoming Netflix documentary.

‘Is Meghan Markle wearing a microphone to use the Queen’s death for her Netflix reality show?’ one tweeted.

“Meghan was wearing some kind of device that you could see the square outlines of during the walk. Probably for recording purposes,’ said another.

Others also disputed the “insane” claims, suggesting it was a medical device instead.

“I wear a continuous glucose meter and my sensor is the same rectangular shape,” one said.

Others said it could be a belt under the dress, or just how the dress wrinkled when moved into certain positions.

“It’s just creases in the dress, nothing else,” one person wrote.

“Maybe she’s wearing her belt on the inside and that’s the buckle. I often wear my belt on the inside with the buckle off the center. I’m sure a lot of people do,” added another.

Another said it may have been a ‘beeper’ to communicate with her staff.
