A video posted to the "Covert Geopolitics" YouTube channel in November 2019 purported to capture a "fully naked 'Filipino looking child' escaping from a window of the Buckingham Palace in the middle of the day." The clip was accompanied by a voice-over narration that consisted of a long diatribe about "pedophiles" and "Satanists." Our partial transcript below gives a general idea of what the narrator tried to convey (minus the profanity):
What's up? I mean, the top floor [of] Buckingham Palace ... just a naked-looking Filipino kid, you know, tied a whole bunch of sheets together just ... just for the heck of it. Yeah, that's it. Just for the heck of it. He's willing to try to escape naked, leap out of that floor, while a parade is going by. What has happened to that kid that he's willing to do that? Imagine that.
In the video, an almost completely naked man (minus a sock) was seen climbing down a bed sheet, on the side of the palace from a window. Blogs and news agencies from Daily Mail to Cosmopolitan covered the video not knowing whether it was real or fake while users took to the comments to share their opinions.
In the full tabloid video [below], viewers see that the naked man was actually escaping from Princess Eleanor's (Alexandra Park) chambers, once again putting her back into the spotlight. "The renegade royal has been spotted dancing wildly at a late night club and snogging at least one member of the cabinet," the narrator explains.
