Did Prince Harry Know About Prince William’s Alleged Affair With Kate Middleton’s Best Friend?

Something may be amiss in the royal family. Though the world’s attention has been on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as they await the birth of their first child –Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton might be dealing with a crisis in their marriage. In late March 2019, rumors began buzzing that Middleton and her best friend and neighbor, Rose Hanbury had a massive falling out.

According to The Sun, the duchess asked Prince William to have Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage, who is the Marquess of Cholmondeley “phased out” of their friend group. Though the royals and Hanbury are both denying the rift –now there are rumors that Prince William and Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, were having an affair.

This story may be true or false, but there’s a growing number of allegations going around in England that Prince William had an affair with Marchioness Rose Hanbury. Hanbury is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley and her husband is David Rocksavage, the Marquess of Cholmondeley. After rumors began to spread about the alleged affair on Twitter yesterday, Kensington Palace allegedly began to make people delete their tweets. Reportedly, Kate Middleton has banned Marchioness Rose Hanbury from she and Prince William’s circle of friends. A spokesperson for Duchess Kate has said that she and the Marchioness were never good friends and have only been to each other’s houses a few times. (They live a few miles from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s country house.) But a source says that they were in fact particularly close. Another source says, “No one understands quite how things have come to this,” but people believe that it has something to do with Prince William. Hanbury even attended their wedding. I’ll see what developments arise concerning this story and post more if need be. *******Update: A source close to the palace says that the rumor of a feud between the women isn’t true and that it left them “baffled” to hear about it. The source also says that, “Both wives are hurt by the suggestion that there is any argument or even a coolness between them.” #dukeofcambridge #duchessofcambridge #princewilliam #katemiddleton #rosehanbury #davidcholmondeley #marchionessofcholmondeley #marquessofcholmondeley #celebrity #news #celebritynews #celeb #celebbelle Image: Stephen Pond/Getty Images

Did Prince William have an affair with Rose Hanbury?

Rumors that Prince William had been cheating on Kate Middleton with Rose Hanbury began when Giles Coren, a well-connected member of the British media tweeted that he had details about the alleged affair. He tweeted and then deleted, “yes. it is an affair. i haven’t read thee piece but i know about the affair. everyone knows about the affair, darling.” Though well-known, Coren isn’t exactly a sound source. He has a reputation for seeking controversy and being intentionally provocative.

Though we don’t know exactly what transpired — journalist Nicole Cliffe claims that the reason why the Cambridges and Rose Hanbury are up in arms and threatening legal action is because there is some truth to these allegations.

However, a source told royal reporter Richard Kay, “these hurtful rumors of a fallout are simply false. William and David [Rose’s husband] were in touch with each other over the weekend, not knowing whether to laugh or complain. Both wives are hurt by the suggestion that there is any argument or even a coolness between them. They have plans for future events involving their charity.”

Did Prince Harry know about Prince William’s alleged affair with Rose Hanbury?

For months, there have been rumors of feuds and rifts between the Cambridges and the Sussexes. Though Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton never had an issue with each other –it has been said that Prince William and Prince Harry had a falling out in 2016 when the older prince warned his brother about moving too fast with the former actress.

Now, Cliffe is saying that the source of the brothers’ rift might be this alleged affair. She tweeted, “Wills would absolutely have told Harry about the affair, And I think that Harry was like ‘this is exactly what ruined our childhoods.”

Could this be the real reason Prince Harry has distanced himself from Prince William? After all, the Duke of Sussex adores his sister-in-law. We’ll probably never know, but we certainly hope it’s not true. The Palace will instead shift to focusing on the arrival of Baby Sussex while Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton take on more royal events.
