Find out why Carole Middleton accompanied new mum Kate Middleton to the North where Prince William has returned to duty
Kate Middleton‘s mother Carole is proving her worth as a live-in nanny as she accompanied the Duchess and her newborn back up to their Anglesey home this week.
Kate returned to the North Wales farmhouse – with her mother in towe – to follow Prince William back to their former North Wales residences where he is resuming his duties as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.
The new nan hasn’t left her daughter’s side since Kate chose to stay in her parents’ Berkshire mansion, four weeks ago, almost straight from giving birth at the Lindo Wing in St Mary’s hospital.
The Duke and Duchess are said to be ‘immensely grateful’ to Carole who has helped an overwhelmed Kate with the care of their new son since they made the decision to be without a nanny for Prince George.
The Duchess has been staying at her childhood home with her parents as she becomes accustomed with motherhood and reports say this is where she ‘just feels safest and most secure’.
As well as being a close friend and support to Kate, Carole is reportedly the only person who can get Prince George to go to sleep – a trouble Prince William remarked on at his recent visit to the Anglesey Agricultural Show.
The Prince of Wales said Prince George had caused the new parents a few sleepless nights but had now settled down into a routine.
So it seems the marvellous nanny’s work was done with the Prince settled into an effective sleep pattern and so Prince William dropped his mother-in-law at Bangor train station for her to return to her Berkshire home.
When the Prince of Wales finishes his Anglesey duties in mid-September, Kate and William will take Prince George back down to Kensington Palace, their new family home, which is thankfully a lot closer to the Middletons.
So while Carole enjoys a little peace and quiet, we’re really hoping Kate will be getting into the swing of things by herself.
