Are Kate Middleton and Prince William fighting over resurfaced affair rumors? One tabloid claims a rumored past fling cast a dark shadow over Middleton’s recent birthday celebrations. Let’s check in on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
This week, Star reports things are turning sour between Prince William and Kate Middleton. Apparently, old infidelity rumors are plaguing the couple once again, and they’re struggling to come to terms with the overtly negative media attention. A UK journalist recently accused the duke of burying reports of his alleged affair with socialite Rose Hanbury back in 2019.
“A royal shouldn’t be afforded extra protection from scrutiny than any other public figure,” the journalist tweeted. And now, Middleton is starting to question William’s loyalty all over again. “Not only have the rumors resurfaced, but Kate’s insecurities also have too,” an insider confides.
“She’s been arguing with William again and checking up on him to see if Rose is trying to reconnect.” But William insists there’s never been anything romantic between him and Hanbury, and Middleton should pay no mind to the rumors. “They’ve learned from their mistakes and communicate more openly,” the tipster explains. “So that’s what she’s trying to do.”
This is an incredibly weak story, to say the least. First of all, Hanbury and William’s rumored affair was never confirmed, and the story was never very strong, to begin with. Back in 2019, after rumors of tension between Middleton and Hanbury surfaced, many people came to the conclusion that their alleged feud was over William.
The story snowballed from there until a great many outlets were reporting the affair as fact. But neither the Cambridges nor Hanbury ever commented on the matter, and the rumors eventually dissipated. Now, this magazine claims Middleton’s birthday was somehow ruined because someone decided to tweet about the old rumors.
We’re just not buying it. Since tabloids and gossip sites seem to be the only ones talking about this tweet, it’s likely that the Cambridges haven’t even heard about it. Besides, we’re sure Middleton and William resolved any issues these rumors brought up years ago, and they likely had no effect on Middleton’s 40th birthday celebrations.
We know better than to trust Star when it comes to Prince William and Kate Middleton. Back in 2019, the outlet claimed Middleton left William over the affair rumors and moved in with her mother. Then the magazine claimed William was trying to “leapfrog” over his father and take the throne.
The publication also alleged Middleton and William had “baby fever.” And then, the outlet reported Middleton and Meghan Markle were set to have a “showdown” at Princess Diana’s statue unveiling. Obviously, Star isn’t the most reliable source when it comes to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
