One of the latest major scandals surrounding the British royal family are the rumors of an alleged affair, between none other than Prince William and one of the closest friends of his wife Kate Middleton, a woman named Rose Hanbury.
Why are these news so shocking? First of all, because William and Kate have always appeared to be the perfect couple. They only have eyes for each other, and they have now been together for almost two decades. Furthermore, they have three adorable young kids, and will eventually become king and queen. Naturally then, royal fans were devastated to learn about the current rumors, wondering if the alleged terrible affair actually took place. Many also wonder if it is actually possible that William cheated on Kate before.
What were the affair rumors about?
If we stop and think about the number of people Prince William interacts with each day, it is almost easy to see how such rumors can start and spread like wildfire. All it takes is one badly timed photograph, and we have the beginning of an incessant chatter regarding a potential infidelity in the family. However, things did not really go down like this.
During the recent weeks, Kate was supposedly turning her back on Rose, known as the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. The two ladies have been close friends for years, so it seemed rather unusual that the Duchess of Cambridge would want to to cut Rose out of her life like that. As the situation escalated, rumors were spreading everywhere that the real reason was the cheating of William on his wife with Rose, and Kate therefore wanted her completely out of every possible scenario.
Is history repeating itself?

The #RoyalVisitGermany continued today in the city of Leipzig, where The Prince and The Duchess were welcomed by crowds of local residents and visitors outside the Old City Hall. TRH signed Leipzig’s Golden Book and visited two churches: St Thomas’s Church and St Nicholas Church, which is the oldest and largest church in the city. St Nicholas Church is known as being a key location in the events of the “Peaceful Revolution”, the events which led to the division of Germany in 1989 and German Unification a year later. Tens of thousands of people marched peacefully from the church through the centre of the city. The Prince of Wales laid a white rose at the memorial column commemorating the Peaceful Revolution.
Maybe some royal fans think these rumors have additional weight is that cheating scandals rocked the royal family before. William’s father, Prince Charles, had an affair with his current wife Camilla Parker-Bowles, while married to Princess Diana. Diana was a fan favorite, and everyone hoped she would become the future queen.
Because of her husband’s inability to stay true to his marriage, vows and love, their marriage ended, and people around the world were resentful of him. Therefore, William and Rose rumors might be true since he may be capable of repeating his father’s mistakes.
Are the Prince William affair rumors true?
None of these rumors have been confirmed however, and there is no evidence anywhere. William and Kate are not at all bothered by what people are saying and thinking, and they are interacting with each other the same way they always have, and seemingly always will. There were no statements released, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do not appear have any problems in their marriage. This then hopefully means rumors of this alleged affair will die down sooner rather than later, and everyone will move on from them.
Did Prince William have any other alleged affairs in the past?
As nobody really knows what goes on in the personal lives of the members of the royal family, it does not seem like the Prince has ever been unfaithful to her dear wife and mother of his kids Kate. He pursued her when they students at the University of Saint Andrew’s, during the early 2000s. Since then, he has never been known to cheat on his partner. It is possible William understands how hurtful it would be when someone is unfaithful to their significant other, and he does not seem like he would ever do such a thing to his wife. The rumors are only rumors at the end of the day, and we should remember William and Kate do not want to address them directly, meaning they are untrue.
