Doing her royal doodies? A new photo has surfaced of a woman dressed in all black, walking her dog outside of Kensington Palace -- outside of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's home at Kensington Palace to be exact. The woman in the photo looks a lot -- no, a lot -- like Meghan Markle. And now that the photo has been posted to Twitter, royal fans are freaking out over the fact that "princesses pick up poop, too." 

Poo? Who knew!

  • Entertainment writer Lisa Petrillo was walking by Kensington Palace when she noticed Meghan -- or is it "Meghan"? -- walking a pup. 

    "So incredibly enough, walking by @kensingtonroyal we spotted this beautiful, woman with a familiar air outside the entrance to the private residence where Harry & Meghan live. MEGHAN!? Her dog was doing his business. She couldn’t have been sweeter. ," she wrote.

  • Naturally, Petrillo got a lot of responses on the photo of the supposed duchess.

    "Stop! I'm insanely jealous," one Twitter user wrote, while another simply said, "Pooparazzi!"

    Unfortunately for Petrillo and the royalphiles of Twitter, it turns out that this is NOT Meghan after all. 

  • TMZ reached out to the palace, and evidently the photo is not of the Duchess of Sussex.

    "A source at the palace tells us the photo posted by the reporter is not Meghan and it's not her dog either," TMZ reports, adding, "The mess is someone else's s**t."

    Womp womp. 

    To be honest, it would be a little surprising if the photo was in fact of Meghan, because A) she was letting her dog poop right there out in the open and B) that's neither of Meghan's dogs. 

    According to reports, Meghan moved one of her dogs from the US -- a beagle named Guy -- with her to London, and she and Prince Harry got a dog recently -- a Labrador retriever named Oz. The little white guy in the photo is neither. 

    But again, the woman in the pic really looks like Meghan. 

  • It's incredibly rare to see a candid photo of Meghan Markle, so it's no surprise that fans were up in arms.

    Unfortunately it was just some random woman and her random dog pooping. 

    Royals, man. They make everyone a little nutty.
