Yesterday I wrote about the story, which took over royal gossip circles this weekend – it has been brewing for several months originating in the English landscape with "Turnip toffs". As I said, it is Big Little Lies, royal edition. Probably Princess Kate used to be good friends with Rose Hanbury, Cholmondeleys Marchioness, but now they are no longer tight and apparently Kate has pushed Prince William to purse Rose and her husband from their circle of friends.
Throughout the reporting, no one has been able to say what it is about. They are still talking about a rift – but they will not follow up with the reason for the rift. Which … is unusual. Because as if a source comes to you and is like, hi, Kate and Rose are no longer friends, the natural and logical next question is … why?
As you know, royals usually do not attempt to close all rumors. They typically try to ride it out. In his column for the Daily Mail, which I covered yesterday, Richard Kay noted that both William and Cholmondeleys have "considered legal actions" and that adds another intrigue law here ̵
Rose's husband is older. Rose is attractive. And William is royal. And the nobility, you don't know, it's not rare for these people to have an affair. Smokes about an affair between Will and Rose have simulated. Today, people have whispered about the opportunity, but no one wanted to say it out loud. Until …
The above tweet has since been deleted. This is a screenshot. The royal agency is busy today.
Giles Coren is a well-connected member of the British media. This is not a random person Twitter egg. That said, Giles Coren is also known to be a smoker. He has a reputation for being deliberately provocative and seeking controversy. So he burns a fire that has smoldering, and well, everyone now looks to see if it's going to blow, or if House Cambridge can somehow contain it.
Everyone in England is talking about it right now. And it reminds me of last summer and Beckhams. Do you remember that? how a divorce from Beckham was imminent. It seemed to start without any credentials, anywhere online, a rumor from a place that David turned up by Harper's teachers. For some reason, members of the British media picked it up and began chatting about it within these circles, thereby giving it legitimacy. And just like in this case, confirmed Twitter accounts were also tweeting like, getting ready, a Beckham message coming, they're done.
They were not finished. They were never done. And I remember at the time I was calling some of my friends working in the UK entertainment and our sources, and we were all amazed. WTF is going on? Because all our contacts said the same thing – that it was a social media fire rooted in nothing. But the British tabloids locked it up and ran with it, and it took weeks before the truth arose – which is that Beckham's was fine. Is still fine. There was nothing there again. Although everyone bought it.
So … is that what happens here with Will and Kate? Or is there anything more scary among the root birds in the English landscape? Will be interesting to see what the next step is. I've heard that journalists are over Cholmondeleys. That they call someone and everyone tries to track something down. Being over Rose Hanbury's home, trying to get a newer picture of her.
However, this plays out, let it be a lesson – that the gossip comes out of aristocratic circles, those who live on large farms with bubbly lawns with fancy old surnames and 18 titles, may be as fragile as those they look down in their nose. In fact, they can even be more waste. Idleness and wealth can take depravity to the next level.
