Prince William’s Alleged ‘Mistress’ Rose Hanbury Meets With Queen Camilla

According to Us Weekly, Rose Hanbury has kept a low profile since rumors circulated about her alleged affair with Prince William. The gossip started while the public was speculating about where Kate Middleton was after she stopped making public appearances at the end of Dec. 2023. Kate Middleton later revealed that she was diagnosed with cancer following her abdominal surgery in Jan. 2024. She shared that she was started preventative treatment, but she didn’t say what type of cancer she was diagnosed with. As previously reported, Rose Hanbury used to be part of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s close circle of friends. She and her husband, David Rocksavage, the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, are also neighbors of the royal couple. However, in the late 2010s, it was alleged that William and Kate had severed ties with Hanbury. This apparently was due to affair rumors circulating at that time as well. Rose Hanbury released a statement through her legal team that the Prince William affair rumors are “completely false.”
