When the children are away: Carole Middleton enjoys day at the races as red rose Pippa dazzles at friend’s wedding
As Pippa Middleton dazzled at a wedding in Scotland yesterday afternoon, her mother Carole showcased her own style as she enjoyed a day at the races yesterday afternoon. Prince William's mother-in-law joined friends at the exclusive Veuve Clicquot Owners & Trainers bar at Newbury Races to watch racehorse of the moment Frankel deliver another flawless performance. Mrs Middleton looked smart in a camel brown V-neck dress, cut above the knee and paired with a black tailored jacket.

All aboard! Queen invites Middletons on her royal river party to celebrate Diamond Jubilee | Mail Online

The Middleton family have been invited by the Queen to join the royal party at the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. The Duchess of Cambridge’s parents Michael and Carole will sail on the Elizabethan, a replica 1890s Mississippi paddle steamer, at the event on June 3, the Daily Mail can reveal.

Although the duchess and husband William will be accompanying the Queen on a gilded barge, it is expected that the Middletons’ other children, Pippa and James, will join them on the Elizabethan.

Hopefully the same courtesy will be extended to Sophie's father and Camilla's children.

Well the Queen has invited Carole and Michael Middleton - as well as Sophie's Dad - to ride in the carriages at Ascot in the past. So there's no real reason to think she won't invite Sophie's Dad along on one of the barges. The Queen is said to be very close to Sophie.

This is a lovely gesture. Demonstrates yet again that Her Majesty is very supportive of her grandson's choice and wants Catherine's family to feel involved and welcomed.

I agree with you. Her Majesty is very fond of the Countess of Wessex, and it would be very lovely to see Mr. Rhys-Jones on one of the barges during the Jubilee Pageant.

Well I was wondering if Catherines parents would be invited to be a part of the celebrations. Im glad to know they will be. Afterall, they are the parents of the future Queen of England. Im glad they are not being left out.

Duchess of Cambridge's parents take 'adult’ approach to the internet
When Michael and Carole Middleton began selling mini-skirted French maid outfits and other risqué fancy-dress costumes, it was clear that they were no prudes. Now, the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents have demonstrated that they take a broad-minded approach to the worldwide web.
Mandrake can disclose that the couple’s mail-order company, Party Pieces, has signed a highly lucrative deal with a German internet giant to take advantage of the interest in their firm, which has increased hugely since their daughter married Prince William. Under the terms of the deal, the Middletons will pay any website that brings business to their company. They have stated that they are happy for firms selling “adult” products or services to benefit.

From the front the house reminds me of one of the houses used as the set for the house of the Bennets in 'Pride and Prejudice'. Maybe it was even 'Lost In Austen'.

But it makes sense to me - the family must be desperate for privacy. I wondered why they weren't moving into a house they could make a refuge.

I was a bit shocked to hear they are going to move, as they just went to all the trouble to have plans approved to have their house attachment added on too..but who knows if any of this is true at all...

Maybe they'll keep one house for themselves and the other for the children to use - sort of a guest house.

Looks more like a Georgian house than mansion. But it still is very, and after paying $5million I hope everything in that house is up to date for them.

I would do the same if I were Prince William. The issues of privacy and security protection will be even more essential once the Cambridge couple have children.

I see nothing wrong with this scenario, and there's no reason why William shouldn't help out his in-laws especially if it benefits the family all around.

I want to know how they even know this information. I doubt either party would be inclined to tell their friends about it. It sounds like an educated guess to me.
