In response to claims regarding the Prince William affair, Rose Hanbury speaks out

What a wonderful moment to be a royal fanatic.


Throughout history, there have been countless well-publicized royal scandals. At various times, the British monarchy’s ongoings have dominated media headlines and sent the people into a frenzy.


Undoubtedly, the current situation is one of the most alluring. In addition to capturing the public’s attention since January with the story of Kate Middleton’s miraculous recovery from an unexplained abdominal operation, King Charles was also shockingly diagnosed with cancer. Not to mention the ongoing scandal surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.



In most other decades, the media’s main focus would have been on the reigning monarch’s battle with cancer. Thus, it says volumes that all other subjects have been essentially driven into the background by the whirlwind of rumors surrounding Kate.


One could claim that the royal family is solely to blame for the extraordinary attention paid to Kate’s recuperation. Apart from stating in January that the Princess of Wales was having a “planned abdominal procedure” and that she wouldn’t be able to return to work until after Easter, the Palace has been so frugal with its updates that they have provoked suspicion.

The public is still unaware of the exact condition Kate was experiencing that necessitated surgery. The fact that Kate hadn’t been seen since Christmas until last week added to the confusion.


And while the lack of hard evidence fueled conjecture to the breaking point, the scandal surrounding the picture of Kate and her kids that was made public in the UK on Mother’s Day shook things up so much that conspiracy theories gained attention from people all over the world.

One of the most widely discussed theories was that Kate and Prince William were going through marital problems, which had forced Kate to step back from the spotlight until a resolution could be reached.

We wouldn’t be doing our jobs properly at this point if we didn’t clarify that there is still no solid evidence to support any and all rumors that William and Kate’s romance is in trouble. Nevertheless, the subject has drawn enough interest from the public to prove that they are, at the very least, quite curious.


The central issue behind the alleged marital discord between William and Kate is the suspicion that William had an affair with Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley.

Rose and her spouse, David Rocksavage, the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, are said to have been part of William and Kate’s social circle for a while. Once upon a time, the always trustworthy Sun newspaper attempted to dispel rumors that Kate and Rose were having a falling out, which led to a considerable number of people believing Rose and William’s affair was the reason.

And it appears that the scandal is still blazing, even after The Sun revealed the aforementioned details around five years ago.



Amidst the media frenzy to discover Kate Middleton’s whereabouts last week, numerous pieces were written on Rose. Some news sites even faced accusations of “soft-launching” the Marchioness to set the stage for when her rumored affair with William became public knowledge.

Naturally, the ludicrous rumors seem to be exactly that—ludicrous. Nevertheless, Rose Hanbury was troubled enough to come out of her silence and assertively refute the existence of any affair.

As per reports, Business Insider reached out to Rose’s lawyers this weekend for comment. “The rumors are completely false,” was the response they received.


There you have it, then. case closed, at least for the time being.
