Why Is Kate Middleton Furious At Reports That She’s Feuding With Her Neighbor?

It’s a new day, which means another member of the British Royal Family is in the middle of an alleged feud. Tabloids are reporting that Duchess Kate Middleton is fighting with her good friend and neighbor, Rose Hanbury. However, the Duchess of Cambridge is not having it.

The rumors started buzzing when The Sun claimed that the duchess and Hanbury had a falling out –and Middleton reportedly asked her husband, Prince William to have Hanbury “phased out” of their friend group. Now –Royal reporter Richard Kay has told the Daily Mail that there’s no truth to these reports. Kay has also said that both sides are so upset that they have “considered legal action.” Since royals get caught up in tabloid gossip all the time, why is Kate Middleton so upset about this particular rumor?

This is why Kate Middleton is so upset about rumors that she’s fueding with her neighboor

Duchess Kate Middleton has known Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley for years. Hanbury and her husband David live at Houghton Hall just a few miles from Anmer Hall –the Cambridge’s country home. The tabloids began running with rumors of a rift between Hanbury and Middleton when unfounded gossip hit the media that Prince William had cheated on Middleton.

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.

Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury are threatening to sue

After battling rumors that she was feuding with her sister-in-law Meghan Markle –Middleton is fed up with tabloid rumors. 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.”

Were Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle ever feuding?

There was never really an issue between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. The two ladies don’t have much in common, but the women have made more of an effort to be a part of each other’s lives. A royal insider told Vanity Fair,

They might not have a huge amount in common, but Kate has no issue with Meghan. She wants them to get along, not just for Harry’s sake but because two royal sisters-in-law at loggerheads wouldn’t be good, and Kate knows that. For Kate, it’s about keeping their relationship professional and putting on a show of togetherness. There are no bad feelings, and I think Kate was keen to put an end to these rift rumors. She has no problem with Meghan, and she has made it clear to Meghan that she’s there for advice or whatever Meghan might need.
