Heidi told The Mirror that she had another “job” as a teacher at a dance and musical theater group, so it would have been impossible for her to be at the farm shop.

There has obviously been some speculation about whether it was Kate and William in that footage and stills,” she told the outlet. “In fact, my own social media has gone crazy as people think it is me, but I know it is not. I was at work at the time so I know that is not me. I 100 percent believe that it is Kate Middleton and William in that video.”

Heidi added that the photos confirm Kate “is alive,” noting that the conspiracy theories have “gone too far now.”
