Update—4:45 p.m., March 18: We have video proof! On Thursday afternoon TMZ published a video of William and Kate’s shopping trip. The video appears to be taken from a distance and shows the Princess of Wales dressed casually in black leggings and a zip-up athletic jacket with hot pink accents, with her long hair worn down and straight. She carries a shopping bag and appears light on her feet; she shows no sign of pain or discomfort related to her surgery. Prince William walks by her side in a similarly laid-back look of jeans, a navy coat, and a baseball hat worn low over his brows. Of course, the video has already caused cries of “stunt double,” though once again, those claims are unsubstantiated.

ORIGINAL STORY—11:19 a.m., March 18

Kate Middleton was allegedly spotted out and about with Prince William on Saturday, March 16, according to The Sun.

The princess reportedly visited Windsor Farm Shop, which is located approximately one mile from Adelaide Cottage, where she has been convalescing following her abdominal surgery earlier this year.

Per the outlet, Middleton looked “happy, relaxed, and healthy”—and we’ll just have to take their word for it, since there were no images from the outing.

At any other time in history, it would be sort of, kind of, believable that the Princess of Wales could get away with an outing sans paparazzi photos. However, when the whole world has been shouting “Where’s Kate Middleton?!” at the top of their lungs, the idea that no one snapped even the grainiest, blurriest photo or video is a bit suspect.

The 42-year-old is not expected to make any public appearances on behalf of the royal family until at least the beginning of April, according to Kensington Palace, which stated that she would be in recovery until Easter (March 31).

This sighting comes after two blurry paparazzi photos (which were picked apart and called fake by conspiracy theorists on the internet) of Middleton were published earlier this month. The princess also shared a photo of herself with her children on the UK’s Mother’s Day; that image was later recalled by photo agencies due to evidence of heavy-handed photoshopping. The princess later apologized for her amateur photo editing.

Perhaps after all the hullabaloo online, Kensington Palace went to extreme lengths to ensure there were no photos of this latest outing? I mean, you can’t claim “photoshop” when there’s no photo….
