Prince William cheating on Kate Middleton may be just another royal rumor, but it would be totally understandable if the fear has crossed the Duchess of Cambridge’s mind. With Prince Andrew’s sex scandal currently making headlines, and William’s father, Prince Charles, admitting that he cheated on Princess Diana in the mid-1980s, it’s quite possible that Kate is worried that the same thing will happen to her.

Celeb Dirty Laundry states that Kate Middleton is “traumatized” by the royal scandal surrounding Prince Andrew “because it makes her fear that Prince William will go the way of the rest of the senior royal males.” Not only is there a history of men in the royal family having mistresses, but British Royals states that Princess Diana also admitted to having a five-year affair with horse riding instructor James Hewitt during her marriage to William’s father.
Penny Junor’s 2013 biography Prince William, Born to Be King reveals that Prince William was cautious when it came to committing to Kate, and had “very real worries” that he would not be able to love just one woman. In 2007, they stopped dating for several months, but BBC News reports that they “rekindled their relationship” the same year. Although they ended up getting married in 2011, their relationship wasn’t without issues prior to their wedding.
“The problem was William: he had very real worries about whether it was possible to love just one woman. After his hurricane childhood, he was understandably cautious about committing to a relationship.”
Years before her death, William’s mother, the Princess of Wales, told BBC News that her husband, Charles, had an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles just three years after they married in 1981. The Prince later confessed to the affair, but claimed it didn’t happen until 1986. In 2005, eight years after Diana’s death, Charles and Camilla married.
Should Kate Middleton be worried about Prince William cheating on her? With a second baby on the way, all eyes are on the royal couple, so it might be harder for him to stray without the media catching on. Recent photos from the Christmas holidays show a glowing Kate alongside her very happy husband, so it’s likely that any rumors that are circulating about William cheating are untrue.
Us Weekly reports that Kate is celebrating her 33rd birthday today, and she is enjoying it in the company of her husband, Prince William, and their adorable son, Prince George. The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly having a low-key day at the Anmer Hall on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, where she has been staying with William and George since the holidays.
