Royally peeved Kate Middleton has banished one of her closest girlfriends from her inner circle over her too-close-for-comfort friendship with Prince William!
The Duchess of Cambridge is feuding with gorgeous former model Rose Hanbury, because she believes her husband, William, is crushing on the 35-year-old knockout!
“Kate’s extremely jealous of Rose!” a well-placed Buckingham Palace insider told RadarOnline.com. “She’s been told William has carried a steaming torch for Rose for years — and he even confided to pals she was the ‘one that got away.’”
Before her marriage, willowy brunette Hanbury was besieged by admirers, according to sources.
“Rose has an aristocratic pedigree that made them an ideal match — and William has raised eyebrows with his comments about her grace and beauty,” said the insider.
