Kate Middleton just had an awkward reunion with Prince William’s alleged fling, Rose Hanbury. The two women attended Queen Elizabeth II’s state banquet on Tuesday night.

According to multiple publications, Kate and Hanbury didn’t interact with each other throughout the entire event. They were also seated quite far apart because they sat at different tables.

Hanbury attended the state banquet with President Donald Trump because her husband, David, Marquess of Cholmondeley, was also there. The latter holds the role of Lord Great Chamberlain and is a regular at state banquets and other ceremonial occasions.

The Marquess of Cholmondeley sat close to Kate since they both hold official and important titles. But Hanbury sat at a different table with the other guests. The sitting arrangement is not surprising since this is usually organized depending on the roles and titles.

But some royal fans are still convinced that Kate and Hanbury sat far away from each other to avoid any awkwardness between them. “Whatever the truth about them supposedly falling out, the attention during the evening would have been humiliating for Kate,” a source said.

Kate and Hanbury’s attendance at the state banquet came in the heels of rumors that Prince William had an affair with Hanbury while he was already married to Kate. However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have not confirmed nor denied the rumors.

Daily Mail’s Richard Eden also previously described Hanbury as a rival to Kate’s rural crown. He said that Kate sees Hanbury as a rival even though this may seem bizarre to other people because the mom of three is slated to become the future queen or queen consort.

Rumors about Prince William and Hanbury’s alleged affair started a few months ago after it was reported that Hanbury had a falling out with her good friend, Kate. But royal experts denied the rumors, and royal expert Richard Kay said that Prince William and Kate are considering legal action to ensure that no other fake news about their marriage or an alleged fling will be published.

“Both sides have considered legal action,” Kay said. “These hurtful rumors of a fall out are simply false,” he added.
