Rose Hanbury Spotted Without Her Wedding Ring Amid Prince William Cheating Rumors

Rose Hanbury’s marriage might be on the rocks. During a recent state banquet with members of the royal family, Hanbury dazzled onlookers in a gorgeous white gown – but a missing ring completely stole the show. Amid rumors of a major cheating scandal with Prince William, the former model appeared at the engagement without her wedding ring, sparking more speculation that her marriage of ten years might be over.

Rose Hanbury attends banquet without a ring

Hanbury attended a state banquet at Buckingham Palace last week in honor of Donald Trump’s visit to London. Dressed the impress, Kate Middleton’s former friend wowed visitors with a revealing gown, but it was her bare ring finger that drew the most attention.

Hanbury has never been afraid of wearing her ring to public events, which sparked speculation about the status of her marriage to David Rocksavage, who also carries the title of the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley.

Hanbury and Rocksavage have been married for over ten years and share three children: Alexander, Oliver, and Lady Iris. The two live close to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s rural estate and have developed a close bond with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

According to the Daily Mirror, the couples often have playdates together and are a part of the royal family’s inner circle in the Norfolk area. This closeness, of course, is what has fueled the rumors of an ongoing affair between Hanbury and William.

Inside Rose Hanbury’s rumored affair with Prince William

Hanbury and Middleton have always been viewed as close friends, but that all changed earlier this year when rumors surfaced of a growing feud between the neighbors. Inside sources claimed that Middleton wanted to “phase” the couple out of their inner circle, a move William reportedly resisted. Insiders say that William tried to get Middleton to play nice with Hanbury, but he was unable to broker a peace agreement.

“It is well known that Kate and Rose have had a terrible falling out,” an insider dished. “They used to be close but that is not the case anymore.”

The rumors of a feud quickly morphed into reports of an affair. Sources claimed that the real reason Middleton wanted to ditch Hanbury was because she and William were hooking up on the side. The couple has not addressed the cheating scandal, and some sources saying there is nothing to the rumors.

Rose Hanbury’s appearance at the dinner without her wedding ring, however, has not helped quell the reports. It is unclear if Hanbury’s marriage is in trouble, but not wearing her wedding ring at a royal engagement was clearly a mistake.

Why was Hanbury at the banquet?

As it turns out, Hanbury’s husband is required to attend important royal engagements. As the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, Rocksavage is supposed to do things like dress the king during coronation and serve the monarch water before the coronation dinner. Given his duties, Rocksavage was also at the recent banquet and appeared alongside his wife. Apart from the missing wedding ring, the couple gave no indication that something is amiss.

Rocksavage inherited his titles, as well as a multi-million dollar estate some 27 years ago. Hanbury, meanwhile, used to work in the modelling industry and was employed by the same agency that represented Kate Moss. She also has close ties to the royal family.

Rose Hanbury’s grandmother, Lady Rose Lambert, was a close friend of Queen Elizabeth and served as her bridesmaid in her wedding in 1947. At the most recent banquet, Hanbury and Middleton were seated feet from each other, though it is unclear if they had time to interact.

Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury consider taking things to court

Amid the cheating scandal, inside sources say that Middleton and Hanbury have considered going to court over the rumors. Both parties apparently think the reports are absurd and believe they might have a case against the press.

So far, the royal family has yet to discuss the rumors in public, so it is difficult to tell what they are planning behind the scenes. It is possible that Middleton and Hanbury opt to remain silent on the subject in the hopes that it all goes away. Unfortunately, as long as Rose Hanbury keeps attending royal events, the rumors will likely persist – especially if she keeps leaving her wedding ring at home.
