Amid a raging debate about Kate Middleton's whereabouts ever since her surgery in January, rumours of an alleged romance brewing between Prince William and Rose Hanbury have started circulating online. Putting an end to all those rumours, Rose, via her lawyers, denied all such reports. But who is this mystery woman?

Rose Hanbury is a 40-year-old former model. She’s officially Sarah Rose Cholmondeley, Marchioness of Cholmondeley.

She and her husband David Rocksavage, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley are parents to three children.

It’s widely reported that Rose’s family has a long history with the British royal family. Apparently, her grandmother, Lady Elizabeth Lambart, served as one of Queen Elizabeth II's bridesmaids when she married Phillip Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh, in 1947.

Rose and William’s affair rumours started circulating in April 2019. At the time, a UK tabloid reported that Kate and Rose, who were good friends, had a fallout with each other because of the rumours.

The same rumours have made a return as some netizens feel William and Kate's marriage could be on the rocks owing to his alleged romance with Rose and maybe that's why Kate is away from the public eye.

On March 18, Rose Hanbury’s lawyers said that any and all reporting of improper relations between Prince William and Rose Hanbury "is completely false."
