After rumors of a royal affair with Prince William and a “rural rival” with Kate Middleton emerged earlier this year, Rose Hanbury was spotted not wearing her wedding ring. While attending the recent state banquet at Buckingham Palace, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley seemed to forget her band, which she usually wears.

While walking the hall and wearing a stunning white gown with a plunging neckline, Hanbury was photographed without wearing her wedding ring. The photo surprised everyone as she is usually seen donning the band in past events.

Hanbury was on the guest list with husband David Rocksavage, the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, for the lavish state banquet in honor of U.S. President Donald Trump. However, the Cholmondeley couple was seated apart.

Rocksavage was seated on the table near the Duchess of Cambridge and next to Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester. Hanbury, on the other hand, was on the other side of the room, close to the Duke of Cambridge and next to GCHQ chief Jeremy Fleming.

Rocksavage and Hanbury have been married since 2009. They only had a very brief engagement. The 35-year-old former model announced their engagement in 2009. A day after the announcement was made, they got married.

Rose was only 25 at that time, while Rocksavage was 48, 23 years her senior. After four and a half months, she gave birth to a twin, Alexander and Oliver, Earl of Rocksavage and Lord Cholmondeley, respectively. Their third child and only daughter, Lady Iris, was born in 2016.

Back in the days, Hanbury was a model represented by the same modeling agency as Kate Moss. She also worked for former Conservative leadership candidate Michael Gove as a researcher.

On the other hand, Rocksavage is from the line of Sir Robert Walpole, the first Prime Minister of Great Britain. He was the Page of Honor to the Queen at the tender age of 14.

Rocksavage started acting as the hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain to Her Majesty in 1990. The role made him in charge of the Palace of Westminster. This requires him, and his wife, to be present at formal state occasions like the recent state banquet.
