Everything To Know about Rose Hanbury, the Close Friend of Kate Middleton & Prince William

Chances are, if you’ve been glued to all of the royal drama over the past few years, the name Rose Hanbury is probably very familiar to you. Also known by her married name Marchioness Rose Cholmondeley, Rose is the woman that’s been linked to those infamous (and debunked!) cheating rumors with Prince William.

For those that don’t know, Kate Middleton and Rose Hanbury were considered best friends for years. However, after news came in that the two mysteriously drifted from one another, many were scratching their heads. Over the past couple of years, cheating rumors have swirled around William and Rose due to different reports, living only a few blocks away from each other, and the fact that the two couples have appeared in public together a few times.

The Palace has denied these rumors but they keep swirling back. However, the royal family’s continued relationship with Hanbury, and the fact that her son son Oliver played a prominent role in King Charles’ coronation ceremony in 2023, prove that the rumors have been put to rest.

In April 2023, however, sources told Us Weekly that the affair rumors only strengthened Middleton and William’s connection. “It forced [Middleton] and William to sit back and examine their relationship, which they realized they should have been doing more often,” the source said. “They’re still going strong,” another source added. “Regardless of their ups and downs, they love each other dearly and their kids are the most important thing in their lives.”

Regardless of the rumors, Rose reportedly continues to be a prominent member of the Cambridge’s inner circle.
