The royal family has always been a source of fascination. Fans around the world are eager to hear details about the family and love to hear juicy gossip. It is therefore not surprising that Prince William's alleged affair is such an obsession. Although the rumors began almost four months ago, they are still not completely extinct.
Add to all, William's story with his parents' affair, and the news has all the makings of a Lifetime movie – or at least a season of The crown. But while the public wants to know if the rumors are true and all the details are dirty, there is a good chance that we will never know what has happened.
Case rumor of Prince William
It is interesting to note that there is no evidence of a case. The "facts" are circumstantial, speculative and simply invented. Nevertheless, many people think there is a possibility of truth behind the rumors, given the past of Prince Charles.
According to sources, William had an affair with a woman named Rose Hanbury. Hanbury and her husband are close friends of William and his wife, Kate Middleton, and live nearby. They share many common friends and interact frequently.
The rumor is based on an alleged confusion between Kate and Rose. Apparently, both had a major fight and Kate refuses to have anything to do with it. This fight is the only thing that caused the tabloids to speculate that William had an affair.
The British royal family is still recovering from the past
It's hard to forget the scandal that surrounded the palace more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Charles and Princess Diana announced the divorce. In 1993, it was revealed why.
Charles had an affair with his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. The two men met in the early 1970s and continued to see each other even after being married.
The public was not aware of the case at the time Charles and Diana divorced. But the following year, revealing tapes were leaked, sharing graphic details about their relationship. This whole ordeal sent shock waves through the whole family and created endless fodder for the tabloids.
The effects of the scandal have been lasting and one could even say that they are still being felt. The case was a nuisance for the palate and a black mark on the couple. Although Charles and Camilla were married in 2005, many people still struggle to accept it.
Silence is the best answer?
Nobody wants to repeat what happened when Charles's affair was revealed. The royal family is well aware that talking about the scandal will only continue to keep it on the news. As such, they made no comment on the alleged case. Although the reports initially began in March of this year, they are slowly starting to fade.
The family probably hopes that bigger stories will overwhelm what were just rumors. The birth of Baby Archie and the appearances of Prince Harry have definitely distracted the story of this affair.
The more we will see the family smile, as we did at Trooping of the Color and in their garden photos, the more the public will see them as a happy family and forget the case. At least, that's what the family counts for. Until proven otherwise, we will probably never really know if something has happened.
