CB and I recorded the Gossip with Celebitchy podcast yesterday (it will be out on Monday!) and we talked in depth about the Prince William-Duchess Kate-Marchioness of Cholmondeley drama. This week, the drama has been pretty quiet, which is actually a sign that there’s something there and William is using his power to silence the speculation in the British press. If there was nothing there and it was just idle, unsubstantiated gossip, the Cambridges wouldn’t care enough to shut it down. In Touch Weekly – an American tabloid, obvs – decided to put the drama on the cover (thanks to LaineyGossip). I will try to get this issue this weekend to see if there’s any interesting tea, but I suspect In Touch doesn’t have much.
Radar Online has also been trying to get in on the action. To be clear, we stopped trusting Radar years and years ago. But again, they’re one of the few outlets saying ANYTHING, so what do they have to offer? Sources say that the whole Rose-Kate beef isn’t about an affair per se, but it’s about Kate’s jealousy because Kate knows that William has always “carried a steaming torch for Rose for years,” and that William referred to Rose as “the one that got away.” Kate allegedly thinks that William just liked to flirt with Rose and Kate is “jealous and suspicious” even though William claims there was “nothing to it.” It’s true that William has known Rose for years, and they might have even dated and fooled around more than a decade ago. Would they still? You decide.
And finally, this was a weird little story which came out this week – the Cambridges spent £15,000 to add a 950-foot hedge to the back garden of Kensington Palace, so that they would have more privacy as they were coming and going, especially by helicopter.
