Reports have emerged this week that the Duchess of Cambridge has had a falling out with one of her closest friends, Rose Hanbury. As one can imagine, such reports have now become international news.
So now we present to you everything we know about what’s apparently happened.
Kate Middleton's rift with Rose Hanbury.
According to The Sun, Kate, 37, now considers Hanbury, 35, a "rural rival". Apparently, William, 36, has offered to mediate between the women, especially as he is close to Hanbury's husband, David.
It's further been reported Kate has instructed William that Rose needs to be "phased out" of their social circle.
The Sun quotes a source as saying, "It is well known that Kate and Rose have had a terrible falling out."
So who exactly is Rose Hanbury?
Apart from bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Duchess of Cambridge, Rose is the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, and is married to her husband, David Rocksavage, the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley. David, at 58, is 23 years older than his wife.
The couple live at Houghton Hall, in King's Lynn, in an 106-room estate, which is only five kilometres away from the country residence of Kate and William, Anmer Hall.
Hanbury is a model who was once signed with Storm agency. She is connected to the British royal family via her paternal grandmother, Lady Rose Lambert, who not only attended the Queen's wedding to Prince Philip in 1947, but was also a bridesmaid.
