If you were on Twitter last week, you might have noticed a rather intriguing hashtag trending:

As we reported at the time, #ThePrinceOfPegging was a reference to a rather salacious rumor about Prince William.

The gossip page DeuxMoi alleged that Prince William was engaging in an extramarital affair.

Not only that, the site claimed, he had a very specific reason for doing so:

Allegedly, William likes to be on the receiving end of anal sex from a cis woman, which of course requires the use of a strap-on dildo.

Making the situation all the more scandalous was the claim that Kate knew about her husband’s backdoor affair and was totally fine with it.

DeuxMoi describes the situation thusly:

Will and Kate Sip Some Wine
Are Prince William and Kate Middleton planning to have a fourth child? That’s the conclusion some fans have reached based on the couple’s recent behavior.

“This is so salacious I’m almost too shook to share with you (but will anyway).

“This British royal’s extramarital affair is an open secret in London and amongst the English artisto set, and is the talk of every party and newsdesk.

“At a recent media party, I was told the real reason for the affair was the royal’s love of pegging, which his wife is far too old fashioned to engage in.

“The wife doesn’t mind her and in fact prefers her husband getting his sexual needs met elsewhere, as long as things don’t become emotional, which was the case with the last woman.”

Obviously, that’s pretty scandalous stuff, but why did everyone jump to the conclusion that the peggee was necessarily William?

As The Cut points out, William is just one of several living princes within the Windsor clan.

Prince William and Harry
Prince William and Prince Harry don’t get along very well anymore. They may not even be on speaking terms.

(The site also posits the theory that the late Prince Philip was into pegging — and while we suppose that’s possible, it seems unlikely.)

So who else might have earned the Prince of Pegging title?

It can’t be Prince Harry, since the alleged pegging has reportedly been happening throughout London, and Haz lives in Montecito, California with wife Meghan Markle.

Then there’s Prince Charles, who’s not too old for pegging per se — but his sex life has been making tabloid headlines for about 40 years, so we probably would’ve heard about this preference by now.

Aside from William, the prince most likely to have inspired this rumor is Prince Andrew, who’s certainly no stranger to deviant sexual behavior.

In fact, the palace would probably love to find out that Andrew has developed a taste for being pegged by consenting adults.

Prince Andrew
One of Prince Andrew’s accusers recently filed a civil suit against him.

After all, this is the guy who recently paid off his sexual assault victim (who was in her teens at the time of the attack) using money that he had borrowed from the Queen.

But Andrew divorced Sarah Ferguson back in 1996, and the pegging reports clearly state that the recipient is a married man whose wife is accepting of his fetish.

That places the finger of blame back on Prince William.

And who knows — in today’s more permissive sexual environment, William might not even mind that word of his fetish is gotten out.

Although he’d probably prefer that stick that finger of blame somewhere else! Zing!

Sorry, we couldn’t resist — a feeling we’re sure William is familiar with!
