Last month, The Sun reported that a list of demands had been released among Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Frogmore Cottage neighbors regarding how they should interact with the royal couple. The so-called rules included not asking to see their son Archie and not petting their dogs. However, we now know the true author of the list is not the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

According to Mark Di Stefano, a BuzzFeed UK reporter, the list was created as a spoof and handed out by a local resident. Di Stefano also acknowledged that "Private Eye," a British news and current events magazine, made the big reveal. His tweet discussing the matter can be seen below.

The excerpt, which was shared on Twitter, read, "... the list was a spoof organized by a very distinguished local resident fed up with the expanding bubble shielding H&M from reality and, far more importantly, restricting dog walkers' access. It was indeed handed out at a residents' meeting, but only as a joke."

According to Harper's Bazaar, the "disgruntled neighbor's joke got taken entirely out of context, and the royals received a slew of abuse as a result."

Due to all of the rumors that surround the British royal family, it really should come as no surprise that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now come up with a new plan on how to control their public perception moving forward.
