The scandal that shook the British royals could have an end. The alleged relationship between Prince William and Rose Hanbury began to appear in the media in 2019, but in recent weeks it took more boom, what is true in everything that is said?
Going through the history of this rumor we can draw the conclusion that it is all unfounded speculation and there are some details about Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, Prince William that give away that there is no alleged romance.
Are Rose Hanbury and Kate Middleton still friends?
With the publication of the alleged photos of Prince William kissing Rose Hanbury, it was said that Princess Kate Middleton asked to remove the Marchioness from her closest circle of friends.
Recall that Rose and her husband, David Rocksavage, seventh Marquess of Cholmondeley, were practically neighbors in the county of Norfolk, where Prince William and Kate have a country residence, Anmer Hall, a gift from Elizabeth II on the occasion of their wedding. In addition, Rose, her husband, and three children live on the impressive property of Houghton Hall.
However, after that controversy, the following months served to see that they were not as distant as it was said. Rose and her husband attended a religious service in early 2020 accompanying the Prince and Princess of Wales.
But that was not all, photographers captured the Marquise chatting animatedly with Michael and Carole Middleton, Kate’s parents, something that would never have happened if William and Rose’s romance had existed.
Did Prince William cheat on Kate?
Another detail to consider in William’s alleged affair is that, according to Kate’s request, Rose was also not allowed to attend any royal event, but Hanbury was present at the state banquet that Queen Elizabeth II hosted in honor of Donald and Melania Trump on the occasion of their state visit to the U.K. Rose was seated next to Prince Harry.
In 2022 Marquise and her husband attended the service together in honor of the Queen’s late husband, Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The recent movements in the positions in the monarchy also suggest that everything is a rumor because, with the death of Queen Elizabeth the Marquis of Cholmondeley was unemployed, he was the great chamberlain of the British Royal House. Now King Charles has decided to give him a new position, he will be the new private secretary.
As reported by Richard Eden in the Daily Mail, the 62-year-old Marquess’ new job will be to attend important royal and state engagements. He will also represent the king at various royal functions.
If that wasn’t enough, Charles has also given an important role to one of the marquise’s sons. Lord Oliver Cholmondeley, 13, will be one of the Pages of Honor at the upcoming coronation of the British monarch.
Everything suggests that William and Rose’s romance was a malicious rumor rather than a proven fact.
