The rumors surrounding Prince William and Rose Hanbury’s alleged affair have resurfaced once again, causing a stir on social media. With comedian Stephen Colbert recently adding fuel to the fire, the speculation around the so-called ‘Katespiracy’ has only intensified. But, where is Kate Middleton and are Prince William’s affair rumors really true? Let us find out together!

Rose Hanbury: Who Is the Alleged Rumor Affiliate?

Rose, aged 40, formerly a model, is officially known as Sarah Rose Cholmondeley, Marchioness of Cholmondeley. She is married to David Rocksavage, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, and they have three children: 15-year-old twins Alexander Hugh George Cholmondeley, Earl of Rocksavage, and Lord Oliver Timothy George Cholmondeley, as well as an 8-year-old daughter, Lady Iris Marina Aline Cholmondeley.

Rose previously worked as a researcher for Michael Andrew Gove, a Member of Parliament and the current Secretary of State for Leveling Up, Housing and Communities. Currently, she manages her husband’s estate. The couple met in Italy in 2003, became engaged six years later, and married in a private ceremony at Chelsea Town Hall in London in 2009.

The Start of Prince William’s Affair Rumors

Speculation about an affair between the future King of England and Rose emerged in April 2019, initially sparked by a U.K. tabloid amid rumors of tension between Rose and Kate. This speculation intensified when Kate appeared distant towards William during a public outing around the same time. Additionally, Rose’s attendance at King Charles’ coronation last May raised eyebrows, although there were no photos of her with Kate, who married William in 2011. Despite the rumors, Kensington Palace never addressed them, and royal expert Omid Scobie briefly mentioned the allegation in his book but expressed skepticism.

The royal expert emphasized the damaging nature of unchecked rumors, stating that if left unaddressed, they can spread globally before any attempt to counter them. Despite Kensington Palace’s silence, the speculation about an affair between the future King of England and Rose Hanbury persisted. The royal expert, though careful in his book, acknowledged the sensitivity of the subject and admitted there is no evidence beyond gossip. Hanbury finally broke her silence, vehemently denying the rumors through her lawyers in a statement released on March 18.

What the Palace Had to Say About Prince William’s Affair Rumors

Scobie suggests that the palace indirectly addressed the rumor of an affair between Rose and William by using Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as scapegoats amid their rift with the royal family. He finds it intriguing how the palace handled the situation, especially as U.K. journalists searched for evidence to validate the affair rumors. Scobie believes that even the mere existence of such rumors could negatively impact William’s reputation. Despite efforts to quash them, the rumors persist on social media, causing ongoing damage. Scobie finds it particularly damning that the palace appeared willing to sacrifice Harry to divert attention from the affair allegations against William.
