Prince William and Kate Middleton have had an interesting year. The two are being groomed more than ever for their future roles in the monarchy. As speculation that the Queen’s retirement is imminent continues, all eyes are on them. William and Kate have been more public in their moves as a result. For every success of the year, however, the couple has been plagued with a number of unflattering rumors.
Many of those rumors circulated around two incidents that some suggest have some overlap. One is rumors that crept up in late spring that Prince William was unfaithful. Media outlets named Kate’s friend Rose Hanbury as his alleged mistress. The other is the well-documented and much speculated about rift between William and brother Prince Harry. Some suggest that the rift is simply because William felt Harry was moving too fast with Meghan Markle, but others think there’s much more at play than that.
All of these rumors of troubles within the Cambridge marriage have now been fueled by an awkward moment caught on camera. During A Berry Royal Christmas, viewers noted a moment that saw Kate seemingly shrug off an affectionate touch from her husband.
