Royal Family Desperately Tries to Dismiss Rumors Prince William Cheated on Kate Middleton

In his new book, Omid Scobie claims that The Firm 'pulled out all the stops' to end the speculations that the Prince of Wales cheated on his wife with the couple's onetime friend Rose Hanbury.

AceShowbiz - Kensington Palace was allegedly desperate to quash rumors that Prince William cheated on wife Kate Middleton with his former friend Rose Hanbury. In his new book, royal expert Omid Scobie claimed that The Firm "pulled out all the stops" to end the speculations.

Omid revealed in "Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival" that press secretary Christian Jones tried to get The Sun, which was the first news outlet to report the alleged affair, to stop making articles about the story. "Christian was so desperate to stop [the rumor] and made it his mission to do so," he stated.

The author added that Christian admitted to him that the whole ordeal was "stressing" him out. At the end, the press secretary allegedly promised a journalist from the news outlet other royal-related scoops "in exchange for standing down on the rumors."

Omid wrote that by June 2019, The Sun "suddenly pulled reporters off the hunt," as a high-level courtier spilled to him that "Christian helped make it end." Shifting its focus from Prince William's infidelity coverage, the tabloid started writing "a series of revealing stories" about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Omid recently shared that he had to be "very careful" when addressing the alleged affair which took place when Kate was pregnant with her third child, Prince Louis. "For legal reasons there are so many things that one can't go into, but I thought it was really important, even if a rumor is a rumor," he explained. "And I really don't see proof that there is more to this than just a tittle-tattle."

He claimed that the rumors have run rampant for years because William and Kate "never addressed it," adding, "Those rumors will never go away even though there's no truth to suggest that they are true."

The Prince of Wales' lawyer, however, spoke up about the rumors in 2019. "In addition to being false and highly damaging, the publication of false speculation in respect of our clients' private life also constitutes a breach of his privacy pursuant to Article 8 of the European Convention to Human Rights," attorneys at London law firm Harbottle & Lewis told British publications at the time.
