Did anyone see Popbitch this week and the story about Kate, William and Rose Hanbury?

‘Rural rivals’ is journalist code for ‘wife vs OW’ apparently. Has William been playing away?

I find quite a lot of the April Fools blinds horrible. Some rumours they have made up and then explained away as April Fools have been really awful and not funny in the least.

Not funny at all. I really sincerely hope William doesn't have a mistress that would be horrible, I wouldn't wish that on anyone. I would hope he'd see what it did to his parents marriage and his mother especially and keep it in his trousers.

tenbob, which Sophia Money-Coutts article?

And who is 'PW'? and is 'PC' Prince Charles? <<mind boggles if so>>

I generally think the stories about it are all nonsense but then Giles Coren (Times journalist) sent a rather direct tweet on the subject (confirming the rumour) which he swiftly deleted. Odd thing for a posh food critic at the Times to bother to tweet though. So the Royals are human and imperfect.

My own (based on nothing!) opinion is that he perhaps developed an embarrassingly obvious crush on this woman and so Kate has stopped them socialising in her company and the gossip spiraled from there.

Someone on another thread on Mumsnet said R's dh was playing away.
Perhaps W was getting too sympathetic, so K put a stop to their close relationship ?
I've seen Mumsnetters post how their dhs have been helping women going through relationship problems and then getting romantically involved with the distressed woman or fearful their dh might be drawn in.
A friendly shoulder to cry on then escalates...

Giles Coren is another member of the Soho Private Club... he was at the opening party of Soho Amsterdam with various 'slebs' and Harry and Meghan.

There were news reports today of legal action against any UK press publishing rumours about the 'royal affair'.

That twitter thread is fab. So Giles Coren says it's all true?

HowlsMovingBungalow Thu 11-Apr-19 18:19:23

Yup and he then deleted his tweet although he is known to be a goady mouthy twat on twitter.

KitNCaboodle Sat 20-Apr-19 23:20:41

Oh Rage, that’s whet my appetite but alas only one paragraph for this pleb too.

Hepzibar Thu 25-Apr-19 20:54:27

This is gaining credence. PW affair trending on Twitter.

If true it's very sad.
