Things have been complicated in the royal family on multiple fronts.
The relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has reportedly caused some friction with his family members — most notably Harry and his brother, Prince William — while at the same time, the older sibling himself has reportedly been going through awkward motions with his wife, Kate Middleton.
Recently, there have been various rumors pointing towards a possible cheating scandal in that part of the family with close friend Rose Hanbury.
According to sources, Prince William might not have been entirely faithful to his wife.
However, this has not been confirmed yet, and William himself has maintained a distance from the rumors too.
It does not look like Duchess Kate has been affected too much by these rumors herself, as she was recently spotted celebrating their anniversary.
Many people, who spotted the couple, noted that they looked great together and that it was evident that there was still a lot going on between them.
It does not look like Kate is mad at Prince William in any way. Entirely, on the contrary, she appears genuinely in love with him from what observers have been able to tell.
Neither of them has commented on the rumors in public so far, and it does not make sense that they would, given their public status.
Many people have expressed disappointment at those responsible for the rumors in the first place, although it is not clear where they might have originated from so far.
In the meantime, the various issues of the royal family have continued to brew.
An insider told Hollywood Life: “Kate and William generally ignore these sorts of nasty rumors, but this one has really rocked them, that’s why lawyers are involved. The rumor is so ugly and so false, they couldn’t just ignore it.”
The source added: “And it doesn’t just hurt them, they are very concerned for Rose. She’s a married woman with children, and she’s not used to this kind of public scrutiny. She’s a friend of not only Kate’s but also the entire family, so this is upsetting for everyone.”
Another person close to the royal family continued with: “The rumors bother Kate. They don’t feel good, even though she doesn’t believe them. What is being said about William makes Kate feel uncomfortable, and she believes in her marriage, not the nasty rumors floating around. She trusts William and doesn’t want to give the rumors any attention.”
Do you think William cheated on Kate?
