Sad news to hear. Catherine's childhood friend, Isobel Kennerley, passed away back in May:

It's very sad to hear that Isobel Kennerley passed away, but was she really a friend of Catherine's? I did Brownies with a bunch of girls when I was a kid, too, and couldn't tell you today what any of their names were, except for one that I stayed in touch with for many years.

I agree, it's the DM making a story out of nothing. I doubt Catherine has seen this girl in 20+ years, which is through no fault of her own, it's a shame that the DM has dragged this up about this woman for no reason other than a headline.

Me too.
It was all so long ago; does Kate even remember this girl?

It's sad news to hear; but I agree. The Daily Fail seem to like making mountains out of molehills. I stopped reading their articles a while ago, because the spelling mistakes and nasty headlines irritated me. I only look at the photos now - it's a shame they're so good.

I believe Isobel's mum gave the interview on Isobel's life (which included being a childhood friend of the Middleton girls as a result of shared interests) but it was aimed specifically about her death and what she had to deal with and how much better these situations could be handled.

Said he once dated Pippa, though that is not true. Were friends at University. Went to Eton with Harry and William.

One of his bars is definitely interesting (for anyone who doesn't know, Inception group is a group of drinking clubs). It has a statue of David where the alcohol comes out of....well let you use your imagination. And their is a fresco of a nude orgy (with the owners faces painted in the fresco)

His brother Alex owns Paddle 8, the company Eugenie worked for in NY. Alex was married to Misha Noonoo who is a friend of Meghan Markle, and is rumored to have been the one to introduce her to Harry.

Anneke works in marketing for de Gournay which makes custom wallpaper.

According to his twitter, he will be opening three new locations of his chain called 'Mr Fog's' which is of course named for Phinease Fogg (around the world in 80 days)

So been stalking his twitter out of boredom. Mainly business posts but boy do they have an adorable dog.

Yes I can find one small mention on twitter of a son named Freddie in January.

Cant find anything on how old Anneke is. Any real detail, other then her job, I have not found.

At the last state dinner, Harry sat next to the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. (Several forum posts mentioned what a striking couple they made).

She is married to the Lord Great Chamberlain, and here is an adorable portrait of their three children.

From the "England & Wales, Civil Registration Birth Index, 1916-2007" database in Ancestry:

Anneke Julia Von Trotha Taylor, born 1986 Quarter 1, Portsmouth Registration district, mother's maiden name Brown.

also: Maximilian Michael C Von Trotha Taylor, born 1988 Quarter 3, Southampton Registration district, mother's maiden name Brown.

According to this source Anneke had a birthday party on 14 January 2016:

I've met her! A few years ago, a travelling exhibit about Houghton Hall came to my city and I went to a preview tour of the show. The Lord Great Chamberlain actually was there leading the tour with the curator and the Marchioness just sort of mixed in with us in the crowd as we followed on through the show. The end of the exhibit area opened into another travelling show, one of modern portraiture, and she was surprised to spot her grandmother on the wall. She exclaimed, I happened to be the person standing next to her at the time, and we ended up chatting for a few minutes about her grandmother and some of the other portraits in that exhibit.

She seemed much younger than her husband, young enough that my first impression was just "trophy wife." But in conversation, albeit a brief one, she was quiet, intense and seemed very smart. She was honing in on some very interesting details of the art, anyway.

They like to drum up drama, and the more the better. Adding the 'falling out with her best friend' certainly upped that

I know they are friends with the couple, but I hardly recall Rose being on the level of 'best friend' status with Kate. But of course they need to up the bond to make the story even more steamy.

It's embarrasing as well how the media presume that the ultimate punishment for those out of favour would be getting put out of William and Kate's social circle. It's not medieval times for goodness sake, I'm sure they will survive and that's if they actually care at all

If the story is true, wonder what the quarrel was about?
The two women have something in common,since Rose and her sister Marina were compared to Kate and Pippa as Wisteria Sisters by the tabloids.

It seems like this is the tabloids having a slow news day and wanting some gossip. I first read the rumour in the Mirror and found it quite hard to believe -especially considering that the only photos shown of the two friends together were very warm and welcoming!
