It's not that surprising after the Middletons had such problems getting the building permits for the additions they wanted to do to their existing property. Although I do believe they were finally given permission, it was a PR mess and obviously wasn't going to be met kindly the next time. This is a better solution, and I'm sure William wants his children to have a very secure and private environment at his in laws. He obviously loves that family and wants his children to have a comfortable environment that fits the security needs necessary.

Why do the DM and the Telegraph think this is any of our business? If they don't feel safe in their current home; which is understandable given that we've heard stories of people walking up to their front door and loitering at the end of their drive; then they should move. Who cares if William is helping them financially or not? They're just as much a part of his family as the royals.

If the above article - specifically where it quotes Carole Middleton in 2008 - is to be believed, then the Middletons are concerned for all 3 of their children. While there are certainly benefits to being in-laws of a future King, there are also undoubtedly drawbacks - and chief among the drawbacks would be the loss of your family's privacy.

William has shown that he is committed to having a good relationship with his wife's side of the family. And since strong family relationships enhance good marriages, I say good for him.

I am thrilled for them! I have always wondered why this hadn't happened sooner. Makes complete sense to me - particularly because of the need for safety and privacy. It looks like they have lucked-out with a gorgeous place - right where they have lived all these years. Perfect.

It's also occurred to me with all this discussion of why William and Kate are not buying a country house - that this, in effect, is their country house. The couple will come here for some of their country vacations. What better place for Kate to come with her children to be totally relaxed, surrounded by her close-knit family, when William is off and away - and one day Pippa's children and James', too, if either are so inclined.

A good move in my book.

P.S. Stranger than strange - what do people make of the 'anti-monarchist tract' on Party Pieces On-Line mentioned in the article? A bit odd.

The Good and the Bad. Their business has improved, good. They will all be hounded by the press for the rest of their lives, bad. As long as there is a balance, and it works for them, I hope they are all happy. After all it is their daughter, and after all these years, they are pasted the Prince thing. They think the boy is good. There name is out there. Speculation will follow them on every thing. The Middletons just need to stay above board and ignore it which it crops up, and it always will.

There's a new face for James Middleton's cake business!
According to Richard Kay, Katie Readman (who once partnered with Lady Natasha Rufus-Isaacs in the company Beulah) is now posing for James.

In the article she mentions that it's weird to find her bikini-clad picture on cupcakes, but said she agreed because he is such a close friend.

Wonder whether she gets paid by the cake?

Pippa looks like she is dressed in a very conservative way. Wonder if that's because she is still attempting to keep a low profile?

While I like the outfit, she must have been sweltering in that heat. I agree with Mirabel that she might be dressing in a conservative manner to keep under the radar since the gun incident in Paris.

Perhaps she is just picking up some things she left there?

But if they have reconciled, we will know soon enough; I don't think the press have lost interest in Pippa.

I really can't believe what I read in the papers anymore, unless there's a photo of the couple in a lip-lock!
