In September, the Invictus Games were held in Toronto, Canada. The games were attended by a variety of world leaders, but not President Trump. However, Melania Trump went instead, and got to meet Prince Harry.
Hold up for a minute. What are the Invictus Games, you may ask. "The Invictus Games is an international sporting event for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, both serving and veterans. The Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect of all those who serve their country," says their website. There you go. You're now informed. But you're going to have some questions about what Prince Harry is doing.
Harry and Melania were even seated by each other at the games. As a result, there are plenty of pictures of the two of them interacting with each other. But one such picture set the Twitter rumor mill on fire.
This is one of such pictures that show the two side-by-side. We think Prince Harry might look like he's at a high school graduation, according to that facial expression. Melania looks like she just walked off a photo-shoot, of course. But this isn't the picture that everybody was talking about.
The picture in question is this photo op between the prince and the first lady. Since it's not a candid shot, they were each able to make a deliberate pose. But something about Harry's pose seemed a bit odd.
Some people thought that Harry was giving the sign because he himself is some sort of Anti-Christ. But would the real Anti-Christ be so obvious when it comes to his hand gestures? Seems like he would try to be more discreet.
Someone thought Harry was flashing the devil horns in order to join some sort of "club." However, Harry's already in a pretty exclusive club, known as The Royal Family. Which means that he should be pretty much all set, club-wise.
And someone else thought that Harry is already in some sort of devil horn club, and he was giving a signal to fellow club member Donald Trump. However, the biggest theory was that Harry wasn't showing support for Trump, but was instead doing the opposite.
This person gave Harry the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he's saying the Trumps are evil, or maybe he's just rocking out to some Slayer that's playing over the PA system. Both theories are equally likely.
Most people talking about Harry's devil horns were merely joking around. But a few people thought he was definitely making devil horns for real, and were legit offended by his actions. Could they maybe have a point?
However, sometimes the simplest explanation is the best explanation. He probably just nonchalantly put two fingers on the inside of the jacket for comfort, and didn't think anything else of it. But that kind of takes the fun out of things, doesn't it?
It also seems unlikely that Harry would give the devil horns to troll Melania when they would be sitting together at the games. But then again, this photo of Melania makes it look like she's not too happy sitting by the prince. So it's possible that the hand gesture could have made things a bit awkward after all.
Kate Bennett, a White House correspondent, may have the answer that we're looking for. She said that He "was reaching in to unbutton his coat to sit down, but the cameras kept clicking so he still had his hand in there in that weird way."
Others say this could be a self-comfort cue, if you're not buying the fact that you just rest your hand there to unbutton your coat and never leave it. It seems like Harry might rest his hand there on the regular.
Do you give up? Perhaps there's no real explanation for this strange hand pose after all. But from this picture, it appears he freed his hand from its suited position. Oh, well. Maybe it will stay one of the world's greatest mysteries.
