Carole Middleton was spotted on a fun day out with her grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The doting grandmother and husband Michael Middleton were seen out and about with their two eldest grandchildren Prince George and Princess Charlotte, while the duo’s mum attended a Wimbledon match (though don't worry, Carole didn't miss out on the tennis fun as she was spotted at a match the next day).

A royal fan spotted the foursome out on Saturday at the Englefield Summer Fete, close to the Middletons’ family home in Bucklebury.

The onlooker told People that the adorable family seemed as though they were having a wonderful time.

There seemed to be no sign of little Prince Louis, who last week was seen leaving his mum in hysterics with a cheeky move he made.

The Middletons’ youngest grandchild, nine-month-old Arthur - who Pippa Middleton welcomed last year with husband James Matthews - was also nowhere to be seen, despite the fact that Pippa was also out at Wimbledon with sister Kate.

But presumably the two tots were enjoying some father-son time with their respective dads.

The weekend day out took place while the Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a ladies day out at Wimbledon with her younger sister Pippa Middleton and her new sister-in-law Meghan Markle.

This is the second time this week that the two Duchesses have been spotted out together, after they were both seen with kids in tow at last week’s King Power Royal Charity Polo Day.

Royal fans were excited to get their first glimpse of baby Archie out in public, as he was cradled by his mother while the young family watched Prince Harry and Prince William participate in the polo game.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis also enjoyed the day out, with the elder two children dabbling in a bit of sport themselves.

The royal duo were seen having a kick-about with a football, before trying their hand at polo and practising their mallet technique.

Now that they’re on their summer holidays, I’m sure we’ll see a few more fun family days out coming up!

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
