Who Is Rose Hanbury’s Husband? Meet David Cholmondeley

David Cholmondeley

There has been a lot of discourse over whether or not Prince William and Rose Hanbury had an affair. We’ve covered the rumour multiple times on Project Fangirl. In this post, however, we wanted to talk about David Cholmondeley, the husband of Sarah Rose Hanbury.

Known as the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley, David Cholmondeley was born to the previous title holder, Hugh Cholmondeley, the 6th Marquess of Cholmondeley. From his 1960 birth until 1968, David was known as Viscount Malpas, and then he was known as the Earl of Rocksavage. He often works alongside King Charles III at Buckingham Palace whenever His Majesty is there.

Upon his father’s death, David Cholmondeley became the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley in 1990. He has had a lot of association with the British royal family since childhood, as his father was Lord Great Chamberlain until his death. David Cholmondeley, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley was a page of honour for the late Queen Elizabeth II until he outgrew the position. He was also credited as David Rocksavage when he was a filmmaker.

Moreover, David also served as Lord Great Chamberlain until the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 2022. He was later made a permanent lord-in-waiting to King Charles III.

David Cholmondeley Marries Sarah Rose Hanbury

In 2009, David married fashion model Sarah Rose Hanbury at the Chelsea Town Hall. Rose would become known to the public as Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, rather than her married name of Rose Cholmondeley. They later welcomed twin boys Alexander and Lord Oliver Cholmondeley. Alexander, the eldest of the two, is the current Earl of Rocksavage, while Oliver is referred to as Lord Oliver. They also have a daughter, Lady Iris, who is a year younger than Princess Charlotte.

Oliver was a page of honour to King Charles III alongside His Majesty’s grandson, Prince George, during the coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla.

The Cholmondeley family lives at Houghton Hall, which neighbours William and Kate’s Amner Hall. Rose and The Princess of Wales are considered good friends and share patronage at the East Anglia Children Hospices.
