Tommy Muscatello aka Thomas Mace-Archer Mills (1979-2023)

Tommy Muscatello, who called himself Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills, pretended to be British and use this pretense to be an "expert" on British royalty. His pretense collapsed in 2018 following the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex when the Wall Street Journal and other newspapers and magazines published details about his ruse.

The cause of death is not included in the obituary, but 43 is far too young to die.  May he rest in peace.
