Rumors about a royal affair are swirling online, and Twitter’s Rude Astrology account has an epic and nerdy tweetstorm explaining it. There are also, of course, many memes.
After the gossip that Prince William allegedly cheated on his wife began spiking in recent days, people tore into the 36-year-old Duke of Cambridge. One Twitter account, in particular, brilliantly trolled the monarch for reportedly cheating on the mother of his three children.
The Rude Astrology Twitter account built a reputation for its amusing take on astrological signs. Tweets tearing into people’s personalities, money-spending habits, and sex lives based on their sign gained @Rude_Astrology its more than 93,000 followers. It’s most recent royal thread has been spreading like wildfire.
Here's Kate's Chart. First thing to notice here is that Kate is currently going through a Saturn square, but Saturn also rules her south node and Sun in Capricorn, so this is double the intensity for her about duty Vs. what she needs as an individual emotionally. pic.twitter.com/bPQ8Lif4aW— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
The thread began by breaking down Kate’s astrological sign, and what it means for her emotional and spiritual wellbeing. “Kate also went through a nodal return recently, so this is about a tendency to be enclosed on herself,” the thread read. “To give too much or ‘fix’ especially in romantic partnerships.”
Kate also went through a nodal return recently, so this is about a tendency to be enclosed on herself, to give too much or "fix" especially in romantic partnerships. Her Sun on the sn also speaks of a tendency to define herself based on attachments to romantic partners— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
so, Kate here is being presented a choice of whether she should stay and carry the burden of duty especially as she has children and we all know once you marry into the royal family, there's no way out or to choose what she needs which is honoring her emotional needs as a woman.— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
this is going to get an even bigger attention and especially more difficult for Kate as May closes in with Saturn retrograding on the exact point of its natal square, so there's a lot of rehashing for her. The one issue here is that -under the pressure- she's blaming herself.— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
“So,” the thread surmised, “Kate here is being presented a choice of whether she should stay and carry the burden of duty especially as she has children and we all know once you marry into the royal family, there’s no way out or to choose what she needs which is honoring her emotional needs as a woman.”
Rude Astrology also noted that Kate will be rehashing old problems. “The one issue here is that—under the pressure—she’s blaming herself,” it theorized.
The thread then moved on to William.
now on to William. As you can see here, William also has a south node in Capricorn and is going through a Saturn square to his Pluto (ruling the MC of public image), his MC is also getting an opposition from Uranus in Taurus (upheavalrevolution) pic.twitter.com/hRoqUUfG0K— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
he becomes his father.— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
“As you can see here, William also has a south node in Capricorn and is going through a Saturn square to his Pluto. … William has his 8th house in Leo ruled by Sun in Cancer in the 7th house at 0 degrees, so William’s sex drive is inspired by his father (who’s surprised?), but it’s bigger than that because William has always been pushed to be like his father or better, so under pressure he becomes his father,” the Twitter wrote.
For all the astrological laymen out there, the complicated jargon may come across as confusing. Luckily, Rude Astrology was nice enough to break down what each sign means.
the thing with William is that he's insecure about his abilities, socially, sexually and as a man, he also hasn't dealt with much of what happened in his parents' marriage, so instead of dealing with it as a tragedy, he dealt with as the norm becoming his father in the process— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
William developed a shell to deal with what he went through that made him use his entitlement and position to make up for his insecurities trapping Kate in the process just like his mother felt trapped and he feels trapped himself.— Rude Astrology (@Rude_Astrology) April 26, 2019
The thread then went on to break down what William’s motivations may have been, based on his astrological sign. It’s a surprisingly deep dive into the Duke’s psyche that closed out on a rather harsh note. “The question here is: ‘Will Kate stay or defy the odds and divorce him?'” It then goes on to answer it’s own question. “I think for the time being, Kate is staying,” it said. “She’s going to act like everything is normal because this is her duty. But Kate will divorce him in a couple of years.” Oof.

I think for the time being, Kate is staying. She's going to act like everything is normal because this is her duty.
But Kate will divorce him in a couple of years.
People online have been eating up Rude Astrology’s unique take.
Wow… That last tweet… AND I’m actually literally eating popcorn (with M&Ms).— Nene J. Phillips (@NeneJPhilly) April 26, 2019
Prince William memes
The off-beat Twitter page wasn’t the only place with thoughts about William and Kate and what their future holds. Many people have decided that it’s time to “cancel” William, now that news of his rumored infidelity is known. This has stirred memes across the social network.

Cheating is disgusting to me in any situation but I won't get over this affair coz Prince William cheated with NO hairline. How dare he.— the ebony falcon (@Lindyyay) April 25, 2019
I know Mueller, Greta Thunberg, Brexit, and Fleabag are the pressing topics of our modern times but I am still not over the Prince William affair and I cannot, will not, let it go.— sorourke (@sorourke15) April 24, 2019
Many people were shocked to hear of the reported affair, particularly in the U.K. According to conversations online, many U.K. newspapers avoided reports of William’s alleged cheating, instead choosing to focus on any and every misstep by Meghan Markle. So in effect, British citizens learned about their prince’s alleged and rumored affair via Americans on Twitter.
Has anyone taking into consideration that maybe the American media is reporting on Prince William's "affair" because they sick and tired of the UK's media reporting on Megan Merkel every move and turning her into a villain?

meghan markle will breathe and the british media will start slut shaming her for no reason but when prince william has an affair they barely talk about it— dansa sjw (@maergery) April 24, 2019
Prince William and the royal family have been reportedly fighting to keep the rumors under wraps. With @Rude_Astrology’s thread, however, that task just got more challenging.
