Meghan Markle Conspiracy Theory (2021)

In March 2021, Oprah Winfrey interviewed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in the aftermath of their decision to step down as working members of the British royal family. Markle was attacked relentlessly by the British right-wing media and across social media platforms and seemed to be getting blamed for every problem in the UK. WOTW designed and printed 500 bogus conspiracy theory booklets that 'proved' Markle was in fact responsible for the pain and suffering of the British people throughout history. The booklets were handed out in London on the day the interview aired in the UK.

The piece played with the idea of fake news and the phenomenon of wild conspiracy theories such as QAnon being cooked up in people's bedrooms and then circulated as fact.
