What is ‘Prince Of Pegging’? Gossip Account DuexMoi Spreads A Royally Baseless Rumor

Recently Twitter sparked a hashtag “#PrinceofPegging” trend, confusing many internet users. The viral trend led to people searching about the practice of pegging after a gossip account ‘DeuxMoi’ raised brows with a royally baseless rumor.

Well, “the royal” in question could very well be Prince Wiliam and “the old-fashioned” wife Kate Middleton who doesn’t mind her husband getting sexual needs fulfilled from elsewhere. Even though the rumor is debunked, people are interested in knowing all about “Prince Of Pegging”. Read on to learn all about it.

What Is Prince Of Pegging?

 

‘Prince of Pegging’ is a trending hashtag on Twitter that pokes fun at a male celebrity getting involved in the sexual act called pegging. While the hashtag remains the number one searched term on the social media platform, turning it into a cultural phenomenon, “Prince Of Pegging” is nothing new.

The practice of pegging has already been referenced in various television shows and movies, including Deadpool, Broad City, The Bold Type and many others. If you ask about the origins, the term was first popularised on the internet by a winning entry in Dan Savage’s column ‘Savage Love’.

Now if you dive further into its meaning, pegging is another term for “anal sex”, though to the act of a cis, straight woman anally penetrating a cis, straight man with a strap-on dildo. This term alone, however, ignites the question of whether the term pegging reinforces harmful stigmas associated with queer sex.

In the current scenarios, Prince of Pegging refers to the claims spread by a gossip Instagram page Deuxmoi about an apparent extramarital affair between a royal who participates in pegging while his wife is okay with it. And guess what, to everyone’s surprise, the targets of this, now debunked rumor, are Prince William and Kate Middleton.

How Did The Rumor Start?

#PrinceOfPegging got viral in response to an alleged royal affair. It all began when the gossip account DuexMoi shared an Instagram story on Wednesday that was created in response to an alleged royal affair. The gossip account DeuxMoi shared in an Instagram Story on Wednesday (July 27) that a “British Royal extramarital affair” is “an open secret in London and amongst the English aristocrat, and is the talk of every party.”

The post contained an anonymous submission, “I was told the real reason for the affair was the royal’s love of pegging, which the wife is far too old-fashioned to engage in. The wife doesn’t mind her [the affair partner] and in fact prefers her husband getting his sexual needs fulfilled elsewhere, as long as things don’t become emotional, which was the case with the last woman.”

However, the internet formed an opinion and decided that the blind item referred to Prince William (merely speculation), thus, the #PrinceOfPegging hashtag was born, and the jokes began rolling in. So why Prince William? I’ll explain to you why!

Why Is Prince William The Target?

If you are not aware, tabloid rumors of an alleged affair between Prince William and a woman named Rose Hanbury (pegged!) kept surrounding the royal couple for at least two years. Some publications even suggested that this is the reason why Prince Harry is now estranged from his brother.

Now, Harry and William’s father Prince Charles famously cheated on Princess Diana, and Harry blames his father’s affair with his now-wife and queen consort Camilla Parker Bowles for Diana’s death. But coming back to Rose, she is Kate’s close friend, and even looks a lot like her, not to say that William got confused that way, eh!

So, Rose Hanbury is a member of a generations-old landed gentry family in Britain and is married to the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, David since 2009. in 2009. Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister recently named her daughter Rose. And fans were outraged by this, but Kate is not. While there is no proof for such rumors, fans are happily enjoying the jokes and memes surrounding the controversy.

Considering the popularity of this hashtag trend, Twitter users flooded the platform with enormous tweets, which included memes and mockery-based opinions, mostly targeted toward Prince William. For instance, one user tweeted: “There is nothing wrong with prince William and his *alleged love for pegging. The problem is that he threw media hate to his brother and sister-in-law so that his affair would be kept out of the press.” Here are some of the tweets:

Jokes Apart, Pegging Is Hurtful…

Even though the #PrinceOfPegging rumor about Prince William may be debunked, the jokes have spiraled into blatant homophobia. Many people made jokes about how only gay men enjoy anal sex and that any man who enjoys it must actually be gay. However, this conclusion has resulted rather harmful to the queer community.

The current trend reinforces the stigma around sex and certain sexual acts. While anyone can enjoy anal sex, regardless of sexual identity, it does harm queer people. Internet users are using the idea of queerness as a slur or insult, adding to a long list of ways, the LGBTQ+ community has been taken down for ages.

In this regard, Adult-sexuality and pleasure educator Goddess Cecilia says “framing the act of pegging as “gay” in a derogatory way only leaves us all open to homophobia. Much of the homophobic tweets show how little comprehensive, inclusive, and affirming sex education has been available. As an act, anal stimulation is not reserved for one gender or one sexuality.”

Now, there is no official source that confirms Price William’s extra-marital affair or anything about pegging, one thing remains clear. While there is a slim possibility that the Prince might even be looking at these jokes, there are many queer people out there whose sentiments continue to get hurt. So yea, what’s funny to us, is hurtful to them. Beware!
