Kate Middleton Goes Medieval on Former Friend: I Will End You, Bish!

by at .

Well, it looks as though Kate Middleton's latest rivalry is making tabloib headlines across the pond.

No, we're not talking about Kate's feud with Meghan Markle -- believe it or not, that cold war seems to have been resolved.

Or at least it's resolved enought that the duchesses were able to figure out a way to keep it out of the press.

Anyway, Kate has more pressing matters to attend to these days.

For example, there's the issue of Rose Hanbury, who's up next on the list of crossed-off names Kate presumably carries around in her purse.

Rose Hanbury

Rose is the the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, which is apparently a real thing, and not just some preporsterously fancy-sounding title that the Brits made up to see if we're still paying attention.

The UK press has dubbed Rose Kate's "rural rival" and reports that the ladies no longer get along have been corroborated by multiple sources.

But at one time, Kate and Rose were as close as can be.

Both were fixtures on the North Norfolk social scene, and their clique was dubbed the "turnip toffs," because -- again -- the Brits are just testing us at this point.

At 37 and 35, respectively, Kate and Rose are close in age, and they used to enjoy double dates with their husbands, Prince William, 37, and David Rocksavage ... who is 58.

Hey, sometimes to earn a royal title you have to conquer a foreign adversary, and sometimes you have to fondle some old guy's junk.

So what happened that caused the Turnip Toffs to disband?

Well, unfortunately, details from the British tabloid press are uncharacterisitically vague on that point:

“It is well known that Kate and Rose have had a terrible falling out," one insider tells The Sun.

They used to be close but that is not the case any more."

It seems William has been doing his best to bring the Root Vegetable Crew together again -- but to no avail:

"William wants to play peacemaker so the two couples can remain friends, given they live so close to each other and share many mutual friends," says the source.

"But Kate has been clear that she doesn’t want to see them any more and wants William to phase them out, despite their social status.”

We like to imagine that Rose begged Kate for another chance, but Kate just cruelly turned her back like that scene at the end of Goodfellas where Ray Liotta stands there crying while Paul Sorvino just fries up some sausage and peppers like a boss.

It's possible that Kate is less badass than we imagine, but she also might be way more badass. Ya never know.
