Kate Middleton is a hands-on mother to three doting royal kids -- Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Carole Middleton, her mom, also prides herself on being a hands-on grandmother.
Previously, Carole Middleton said she wants "to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground" to keep up with Kate Middleton's children with Prince William. She added that, as long as she is able to, that is all that she would be doing.
However, new reports suggested that Kate Middleton has grown tired of Carole's output after happily relying on her to help out with child-rearing. The wife of Prince William allegedly ordered her own mother to butt out of her family's day-to-day business. Keep on reading to know more details.
Kate Middleton Not Talking To Her Mom For 3 Months Now?
Star Magazine, in its upcoming May 9, 2022 issue, reported that Carole Middleton's meddling ways became so "irksome" that Kate Middleton cut off all contact. An unnamed source told the entertainment news publication that the mother-daughter pair has not been on speaking terms for three months now.
The royal insider said Carole Middleton is a "very pushy mother." It added that close pals of Kate Middleton called her "Controlling Carole" due to her constant interfering in her daughter's affairs.
The magazine reported that the alleged tension between Kate Middleton and Carole Middleton can be traced to the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Duchess of Cambridge had previously relied on the help of her mom in raising Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
However, after being on the lockdown with the royal kids, Kate Middleton is reportedly happy to discover she could take on more than she thought. The better half of Prince William reportedly realized how freeing it was to not have to deal with Carole Middleton's "overbearing" behavior.
A tipster claimed:
"It was the first time in Kate's life that she got to be with George, Charlotte, and Louis full-time. The Duchess embraced every minute of it and realized she can do without her bossy mother trying to take over."
It added that, while Kate Middleton pulled away, Carole Middleton clung tighter. The mother-in-law of Prince William allegedly turns up at their Norfolk country residence, Amner Hall, to surprise the family unannounced.
The informant stated:
"Kate would be in the Middleton of a Zoom call or homeschooling the kids, and it would be Carole with a suitcase expecting to stay over. She'd walk into the house like she owned the place and try to take over the homeschooling and tell Kate how to dress the kids. It irritated William to no end."
The news outlet claimed Kate Middleton and Prince William used to love the Middletons' $6 million-worth manor in Bucklebury as they both can enjoy a taste of "normal" life there. However, the "privacy-loving" Duke of Cambridge allegedly started to bristle as Carole Middleton overstayed her welcome.
An unidentified source said:
"William didn't want Carole there at night after kids were put to bed. It's only the quality time he gets to spend with his wife."
Besides her being "very pushy," it was claimed that Carole Middleton's attempts to cash in on the names of Kate Middleton and Prince William to boost her company are "hugely embarrassing" for the Duchess of Cambridge. Star Magazine reported that Carole's party planning business presently offers a collection celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth, marking her 70th year on the throne.
An insider claimed:
"Carole selling tacky Platinum Jubilee products is hugely embarrassing for Kate. Kate can't take any more humiliation and told her mom to stop pushing her products onto William's family."
When Carole Middleton refused to grant Kate Middleton's request to allegedly stop making money off the royals, Prince William reportedly stepped in. The informant claimed:
"William offered Carole an ultimatum. Now time will only tell whether they can repair their relationship."
Both Kate Middleton and Carole Middleton have yet to comment on the reports saying that they have not been on speaking terms for months already. So, devoted supporters of Prince William's wife should take all these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.
Kate Middleton's Stoicism During Breakup From Prince William Cemented Role As Future Queen
Meanwhile, an expert claimed that Kate Middleton's stoicism during her 2007 breakup with Prince William might have cemented her role as future Queen in the eyes of the royal family. To recall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went through a very public split 13 years ago, roughly five years into their relationship.
Kate Middleton, who later revealed after she and Prince William got engaged that she was not happy about it at the time, admitted that the brief split turned out to be for the best. The Duchess of Cambridge previously said:
“Actually, it made me a stronger person. You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realized. I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you’re younger. I really valued that time, for me as well, although I didn’t think it at the time.”
ToDiForDaily.com founder and creator Kinsey Schofield said that Kate Middleton's behavior during her breakup with Prince William made her a "no brainer" for the role of "future Queen."
She told Express UK:
“Kate was probably a sure thing because, despite being considered a commoner, [Kate and William] were together for such a significant amount of time. [The royal family] knew she was a good girl, they knew she wasn’t talking to the media, because in between those breakups, she was so stoic and kept her mouth shut and in all of the photographs of her during the breakup, she’s looking ahead. She just handled herself so well throughout the rollercoaster that was her and Prince William’s dating history leading up to their inevitable marriage. It made Kate a no-brainer—she was the future Queen.”
Prince William, for his part, also acknowledged their 2007 breakup. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said he and Kate Middleton were "trying to find their own way," describing it as "a bit of space" that "worked out for the better."
