  • Kate Middleton's mother, Carole Middleton, has given her first ever interview, which was published by The Telegraph this weekend.
  • As well as opening up about her royal grandchildren—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—Carole also took the opportunity to discuss both of her sons-in-law. While Kate is married to Prince William, Pippa got married to James Matthews, and recently gave birth to her first baby.
  • Kate and Pippa's mom discusses the pressures she faced having had one of her daughters join the royal family.


To celebrate her business, Party Pieces, on its 30th anniversary, the Middleton matriarch decided to give her first ever interview, which ran in The Telegraph. Having remained private, despite the fact that her daughter is now the Duchess of Cambridge, Carole Middleton has finally given the world an insight into what family life is like with the royals.

Having already revealed how she helps grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte celebrate the holiday season, Middleton explained that her family is the most important thing in her life. She explained, "They come first and that will always be the case, even when I have more me time."

And it seems that Carole is particularly enamored with both of her sons-in-law, and even discussed the Duke of Cambridge during the interview. Kate and Pippa's mom revealed, "I have two lovely sons-in-law and I hope I'll have a lovely daughter-in-law." Carole was, in fact, referencing the fact that Kate and Pippa's brother, James, is apparently currently single.

The Middleton matriarch also added that her "biggest fear" as her children married royalty and moved away was that she'd "lose my family, but we've stayed close," which is lovely to hear.
