A senior royal has been branded on social media as the #PrinceOfPegging after a rather "salacious" claim shared by a gossip account raised eyebrows and inspired a flood of jokes.

There's no denying that regular folk are wildly interested in the sexual preferences of "the beautiful people." The trending hashtag #PrinceOfPegging is a testament to just that, aside from Google searches for the meaning of "pegging" spiking by a whopping 400 percent. Nonetheless, swathes of netizens are still confused about the ongoing trend and its origins, with many expressing their surprise on social media.

It all started after celebrity gossip page DeuxMoi shared a message about an alleged "British Royal extramarital affair." It read, "This is so salacious I’m almost too shook to share with you (But will anyway). This British Royal extramarital affair is an open secret in London and amongst the English aristo set, and is the talk of every party, I was told the real reason for 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 and in fact prefer her husband getting his sexual needs fulfilled elsewhere, as long as things don’t become emotional, which was the case with the last woman. #PrinceOfPegging."

The message left royal fans scratching their heads, with many wondering who it was referring to and some drawing their own conclusions. It wasn't long before the hashtag #PrinceOfPegging dominated Twitter.

"Imagine being the person who has to explain 'Pegging' to the Queen. #PrinceOfPegging," one quipped.

"I wanna go back to 20 minutes ago when I didn’t know what #PrinceOfPegging meant," another wrote.

In fact, many have no clue what pegging actually means. For the uninitiated, it is a sexual practice that reverses conventional roles and sees the woman wear a strap-on sex toy to penetrate the man’s behind. The neologism "pegging" was popularized after it became the winning entry in a contest held by Dan Savage in his sex advice column 'Savage Love'. The author came up with the contest after realizing there was no common name for the sex act.

While the hashtag #PrinceOfPegging is arguably catchy and has a royal ring to it, not everyone is amused. Fans of the senior royal being targeted have noted how the attacks came just days after controversial British biographer Tom Bower dropped his bombshell book 'Revenge' about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex -- and could very well be Twitter's own, curated revenge fantasy over their treatment. "This has as much evidence as anything in Tom Bower’s book so I guess we should all take it as fact? That’s how this works right?" one disgruntled fan tweeted of the ensuing grapevine.

While one's sexual preference is not anybody's business, it's worth noting that the senior royal in question has been in the discussion since 2015. Some claim he has been interested in pegging since his college days. However, there is no evidence of truth to any of this, especially considering it was popularized by one of the most notorious celebrity gossip pages on the internet, DeuxMoi.

While DeuxMoi's focus on mundane gossip has often been described as "toothless," they have amassed a huge following in recent years.
