The alleged romance between Prince William and Rose Hanbury was given more credibility outside the United Kingdom than within. There they know that Kate Middleton and the Marchioness of Cholmondeley have been considered close friends for many years. The couple were invited to the coronation of Charles III and the couple’s son, Oliver, was a page at the ceremony alongside Prince George.

This Wednesday the closeness of the Cholmondeley family with the British royal family was once again evident when little Oliver Cholmondeley once again held the position of royal page for Charles III. The event took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral, where almost 2,000 people gathered for a solemn ceremony of the Order of the British Empire.

The Marquesses of Cholmondeley, David Cholmondeley and Rose Hanbury, own the lavish Houghton Hall, less than ten minutes by car from the second residence of the Princes of Wales, Anmer Hall, adjacent to the well-known Sandringham estate. They are part of the group of friends of the Princes of Wales when they are on a country retreat and also participate in the ceremonies, since David Cholmondeley was an honorary page of Queen Elizabeth II and served as Lord Great Chamberlain of England from 1990 to 2022.

King Charles has spent the last 48 hours with a lot of action, as he has attended up to four official events in a few hours. Since he announced his cancer, the British monarch was holding events with few participants and the majority inside Buckingham Palace, something that has changed in the last few hours.

On Tuesday afternoon he presented his first official portrait painted since he was crowned at Buckingham Palace. That same day he held his first investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle, it was the first time he had attended them since last December. While some members of his family have replaced him.

And on Monday he starred with Prince William in a meeting to remember, the father officially transferred the position of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps to his son, during a visit to the Middle Wallop aviation center, in the county. of Hampshire. It was one of the first public events in which they were seen together since the king announced his cancer.
