Prince Harry Met Melania Trump And Sparked Conspiracy Theories
They couldn't come from more opposing backgrounds, yet Prince Harry and Melania Trump united to open the Invictus Games - a sporting event to help those wounded, injured or sick from military action.
HRH Prince Henry Of Wales is, obviously, a member of the Royal family. Melania, now First Lady of the United States, has her roots set in an apartment block in a Slovenian town.
When they met on Saturday to discuss the Invictus Games, Prince Harry's hand gestures sparked conspiracy theories.
The two-pronged holding of his suit, has prompted many to suggest he sides with the devil, and the symbol is that of its horns.
The 20-minute meeting featured around 19 minutes of unspoken action, but the first minute, with Prince Harry exposing only his index and little finger, has been the centre of attention.
He holds the posse for a good ten seconds as well, suggesting that it wasn't an accident as no correct was made.
Likeness has been made to Gene Simmons, the Kiss frontman, who has popularised the symbol during his concerts.
One Twitter user wrote: "Need more proof Prince Harry is the anti-Christ? Look at his right hand. The sign of the devil. He kept his hand there while taking pictures."

Another added: "First thing I noticed when I saw this photo is Prince Harry doing the devil's horn/satan hand sign. Also in the video, it was intentional."
Away from the chatter of collaborating with the underworld, both were delighted to open the third Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada.
Melania said in a statement: "In just two short years, the Invictus Games have allowed thousands of injured and wounded servicemen and women from many different countries to participate in adaptive sports competitions -- something that should be lauded and supported worldwide.
"I am honoured by the opportunity to represent our country at this year's games."
A body language expert told the Daily Mail how the pair looked nervous and resilient as they met.
Patti Wood said: "He [Prince Harry] started with his hands clasped and he's gesturing very low to the body. It felt like he needed to protect himself during the interaction.
"It's proper etiquette but it's interesting because it assumed there's something to be a little bit concerned about."
She compared it to when the Prince met Michelle Obama in 2015. There he seemed a lot more relaxed and 'much more comfortable'.
The games, which opened on Saturday, run for seven days and sees 17 countries, including the UK, compete in 11 sports.
