Jimmy Kimmel is now weighing in on those Kate Middleton conspiracy theories!

During the Tuesday, March 19, episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the comedian said the royal has caused a stir in the past few weeks — but people don't have the same kind of connection to Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump.

She’s gonna be out quite a bit and she loves his country and she wants a great and she says hello.”

According to body language expert Judi James, the two seemed uncomfortable with one another.

"From courtrooms to the campaign trail, Trump can produce the body language poses of an arrogant, confident alpha no matter how great the pressure. But here with his wife Melania he suddenly looks awkward, boyish and even subtly submissive," she told The Mirror.

"Melania gets to walk ahead here while Trump follows with his arms straight down at his sides and his chest dropped rather than raised in a splay. He seems to talk to her before applying an odd beaming smile with clamped lips," James added.
