Last month, it was reported that there was a falling out between Kate Middleton and a woman from her inner circle, Rose Hanbury. This month there are rumors of an affair between Rose Hanbury and Prince William.
Who is Rose Hanbury?
Rose Hanbury has been close to the royal family for a long time. Her grandmother was actually one of the bridesmaids in Queen Elizabeth II’s wedding to Prince Phillip in 1947. Rose Hanbury is a former model who became Marchioness of Cholmondeley following her marriage to the seventh Marquess of Cholmondeley in 2009. Rose briefly dated Prince William years ago, although after marrying she became a part of his elite crew.
Rose is part of the ‘Turnip Toffs’ a group of British aristocrats that live near one another. They hang out, have garden parties and spend time with their children. Rose herself, has three children as well.
The history between the two sparks jealousy
A royal family source gave a unique insight into the affair allegations.
“Kate is extremely jealous of Rose. She has been told William has carried a steaming torch for Rose for years and has even confided to friends that she was ‘the one that got away’, Rose has an aristocratic pedigree that has made them an ideal match, William has raised eyebrows with his comments of her grace and beauty.” An Insider stated.
“Kate sees the friendship in an entirely different light now, She thinks about William flirting with Rose, and she’s jealous and suspicious. Kate confronted William, demanding to know the truth about his relationship with Rose, but he just laughed it off, saying there was nothing to it.” Another source added.
Kate and Rose had a falling out
Last month Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury had a falling out. It is unclear on the exact reason why.
“It is well known that Kate and Rose have had a terrible falling out. They used to be close but that is not the case any more, William wants to play peacemaker so the two couples can remain friends, given they live so close to each other and share mutual friends. But Kate has been clear that she doesn’t want to see them any more and wants William to phase them out, despite their social status,” An inside source claimed.
Are the allegations true?
According to a source, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not happy with these rumors. They are concerned for Rose Hanbury. A source stated that Kate and William typically ignore these rumors but with this one they couldn’t.
“Kate and William generally ignore these sorts of nasty rumors, But this one has really rocked them, that’s why lawyers are involved. The rumor is so ugly and so false, they couldn’t just ignore it.” A source said.
These rumors definitely hit at the wrong time as Kate and William are about to celebrate eight years of marriage. No other claims or responses have been made. For further updates, stay tuned.
