As per a section of netizens, it is being believed and spread that it is the Babydoll singer who infected Prince Charles with the virus. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that Kanika Kapoor, before lodging in Lucknow, was back from the UK and she allegedly even hid her travel history with the travel authorities.
A lot of people flooded social media with memes that blamed Kanika. However, a little fact check and Google research and we found out that NO, those pictures of Kanika Kapoor greeting Prince Charles aren’t latest but from the year 2015 and 2018.
