Kate Middleton's uncle has confirmed she'll move in with her parents for the first six weeks after the royal baby's birth
Kate Middleton will return to her family home in Berkshire for the first six weeks after the royal baby’s birth, her uncle, Gary Goldsmith has confirmed.
In an interview with the Telegraph, the businessman said it was ‘genius’ for the Duchess of Cambridge to move in with her parents, so she can stay out of the spotlight for those first precious weeks.
‘The fact that they’re taking the baby to Carole’s for the first six weeks is genius,’ Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary explained.
‘Carole’s a brilliant mum – she is 10 years older than me and practised on me – and I think it’s the right thing to do. It will take the pressure off Kate.’
A separate source told the Daily Mail that the secluded Middleton family home is where Kate feels ‘safest,’ and will keep her away from prying eyes until she is ready to return to London.
‘Kate just feels safest and most secure when she’s with her family, ‘ the insider said.
It’s thought Kate Middleton will return to her family home in Berkshire, to prepare for the royal arrival at the beginning of July, ahead of her July 13 due date.
Reports suggest the Duchess could even choose to give birth at a hospital local to the Middleton family home, after it was revealed her family are in favour of the idea.
‘Kate’s family want the baby to be born at the Royal Berkshire Hospital,’ a family friend told the Telegraph.
‘Their thinking is that she will be based at her parents’ house during the later stages of her pregnancy and they do not want her to have to travel miles to Paddington when she goes into labour.’
It’s thought Kate’s surgeon-gynaecologist Alan Farthing, who also looks after the Queen, will travel to whichever hospital the the Duke and Duchess choose.
Last week, insiders said that, contrary to reports, Kate Middleton has prepared a ‘small nursery’ for her newborn, as she didn’t feel it was ‘worth the money’ to splash out on a lavish baby theme.
‘They have a small nursery prepped,’ a source told US Weekly. ‘But it’s humble. Kate felt it wasn’t worth the money to go all-out.’
