• Andy Cohen is regretting his royal speculations
  • He spread some rumors about Kate Middleton's absence

Among other comments made on Instagram, Cohen had written on X (formerly Twitter) that a reported sighting of Middleton amid rumors of her disappearance was fake. "That ain’t Kate…." his message read.

He continued, "I wish I had kept my mouth shut, and we are all praying for Princess Kate and King Charles. And so, I just had to say that right at the beginning. It’s the first opportunity back in front of a live microphone."

The late night host is one of many celebrities who has taken to social media following the news of Middleton’s cancer diagnosis to express their regrets over adding fuel to conspiracy theories surrounding the princess being missing from the public eye.

The viral conspiracies began shortly after the palace announced that Middleton had been released from the hospital following an unspecified abdominal surgery in January.
