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.
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.
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.
