I agree; it's great to read a complimentary first-hand account. The simple truth is refreshing.

Baby Kate is adorable:) and Carole seems to be a very good mum

I wonder if the old "friend" asked permission from the Middletonsor warned them about it.

The photos of Carole Middleton and her baby Catherine and the account of her neighbourly friendship with George are very lovely.
They show that Carole is a bright, positive role model for any women - well done to her for being a great mother, home maker and business women.
Carole and Michael are portrayed as solidly on the same page and supportive of their friends and family.

How silly. Catherine comes from a wealthy middle class family. Almost any old English family would have some very distant links to someone who had a title but that does not change the fact that they themselves come from a middle class family.

It doesn't make her a noble but she's not the street urchin that some of her critics like to portray her as
I'm sure as heck am not related to any earls or former Prime Ministers hahahha
It just a bit of trivia, I think its pretty interesting.

^^^^^
its like the class system run amuck, as if someone is saying she is not enough on her own so these extremely tenuous links to the aristocracy (which many middle class families would have) are needed to make her acceptable,

I have a slightly different take. Critics use information like this to argue that the royals have been deceiving us all by describing Kate as just a normal middle-class girl. That they're trying to pull the wool over our eyes by suggesting that the royals are modern and moving with the times, when really Kate is just another upper class semi-aristo like all the other recent women to marry into the RF.

Critics are critics. The BRF can never win in the eyes of some. One group of people think royals should only marry other royals, or what's the point of having to curtsey to 'commoner' royals.
Others think its good to have a middle-class princess and that its a move forward.
Personally I like my royals to be posh and for me Catherine is the best of both worlds.

I would rather see royals marry for love, regardless of the social class. But part of the marriage is taking on the job of being royal, and the Duchess is doing a great job, middle class or whatever.

This was a school assignment for some children. Catherine thanked them for the information. Nothing more, nothing less.
