First Ever Interview Of The Duchess Of Cambridge’s Mother, Caroline Middleton, Gives A Sneak-Peek Into An Interesting Family Tradition She Shares With Her Grandkids
How often do we think about the Middletons? Even when we do, we assume they live the high life, having a blast in luxury and whatever else in-laws to royalty do.
However, we know better now thanks to an interview Caroline Middleton, Kate’s mother, granted to The Telegraph.
During the interview, the businesswoman revealed that, even though Kate got married to Prince William, they are still a close-knit family. She went ton to describe the 2011 royal wedding, which drew millions of viewers from all over the world, as a ‘family event.’
Also, she opened up about a quirky family tradition. Every Christmas, the famous grandmother revealed what she likes to do for her grandchildren - George, Charlotte, and Louis - during the holidays.
She explained that each grandchild usually get their own tree in their rooms and free rein to decorate it to their hearts’ content. She sure likes to have lots of Christmas trees around the house!
There is no doubt that this would be exciting for any child. One can only imagine what Charlotte’s tree would look like.
However, we wonder who will decorate Prince Louis’, since the youngest of her grandkids is not likely to have his say yet.
It is refreshing to get a glimpse of the grandmother’s relationship with the little ones, considering how much the media has focused on the Royal Household’s influence on them.
The interview also had the older Middleton talking about her children’s upbringing.
She added that having Prince William as a son-in-law has been incredible, though she looks forward to having a daughter-in-law, a reference to James Middleton, Kate’s unmarried brother.
It’s rare to get a glimpse into Carolin Middleton’s world, but it’s an opportunity we’re glad for.
