Rose Hanbury's Image Rehab Reignites Prince William Affair Rumors

Rose Hanbury’s Image Rehab Reignites Prince William Affair Rumors

In 2019, The Daily Beast revealed that a U.K. media outlet had received a legal warning from the royal family’s lawyers. This occurred after the outlet reported on Prince William’s alleged affair with Rose Hanbury. Royal expert Duncan Larcombe noted, “The use of a legal letter by William as a future king is very much a move of last resort.” He also mentioned, “While traditionally, the British royal family would not take specific legal action — the old saying was ‘never complain and never explain’ — William and Harry are willing to do it in their own way.”

It appears that the parties involved in the affair rumors are particularly desperate to keep them at bay. Yet, the situation becomes more intriguing, as some media outlets may not just avoid the rumors but also speak positively about Hanbury. When gossip about the alleged affair first emerged five years ago, there seemed to be a subsequent push for positive stories about the marchioness. The media notably highlighted Hanbury in a better light — reporting on her outfits at events and even suggesting that she and Kate were still friends.

The same pattern appears to be happening again with the resurgence of the rumors in 2024. The royal family might not simply want to quash the sordid rumors; they may also be attempting to rehabilitate Hanbury’s image. If that is the case — which remains uncertain — then a significant royal scandal could be on the horizon.
