Who is Lady Rose Hanbury?

“Now there have been rumours an affair between William and the Marching Band of Chicanery since 2019,” he continued. 

“According to tabloids back then, when Kate supposedly confronted him about it, he laughed it off saying there was nothing to it. Always a good response when your wife accuses you of cheating.”

Rose first made headlines in 2019 when reports emerged that the Princess of Wales had had a “terrible falling out” with one of her closest friends (that close friend being her).

Now that her name is back in the spotlight, it’s worth knowing who she is and what her relationship with the Princess of Wales looks like now. Here’s what we know. 

Who is Rose Hanbury? 

You might feel like you have seen her before and that’s only because she has an uncanny resemblance to Princess Kate. 

Rose is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley and is married to David who is the Marquess of Cholmondeley. 

He is 23 years older than his wife, at 62 years old. 

She was once hailed as one of the best-dressed guests at the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (now the Prince and Princess of Wales). 

Rose was also a model who has connections to the British royal family through her paternal grandmother, Lady Rose Lambert, who was a bridesmaid at the Queen’s wedding to Prince Philip in 1947.

She shares two sons with David, 15-year-old twins Alexander and Oliver, and a younger daughter, eight-year-old Lady Iris. 

At the coronation, Oliver was one of King Charles III’s Pages of Honour. 

Are Rose Hanbury and Princess Kate friends? 

Back in 2011, Rose and the Princess of Wales were thought to be so close that she and their husbands went on double dates with one another.
