Is there another royal feud brewing? If you want to believe the tabloids, then yes! Kate Middleton is no stranger to rumors of feuds, making us wonder if there is some grain of truth to it all. Over the past few months alone, Middleton has been accused a number of times of being in a fight with her sister-in-law Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. Now, The Sun now claims Kate has another “rival,” Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. Other publications have called this rumor rubbish and reported that both Kate and Rose “have considered legal action but because none of the reports have been able to offer any evidence about what the so-called dispute is about, they have chosen to ignore it.” Who is Rose Hanbury?
Rose Hanbury was born on May 7th, 1978 in London to Lady Alexandra Coke (née Lowndes) and David Hanbury. Her father was a Conservative politician who served as a member of Parliament from 1983 until 2001. Rose’s mother Alexandra was an interior designer who designed furniture for Buckingham Palace and had three children with her husband before she died from cancer when Rose was just 14 years old.
