Carole Middleton is “indispensable” to her daughter Kate and her son-in-law Prince William when it comes to keeping them ordinary, according to a royal expert.
- Carole Middleton regularly "whizzes" to Kate and William's Kensington Palace home to help with George, Charlotte and Louis’ bath time and bedtime.
- The Duchess of Cambridge's mom is said to play a key part in keeping the couple's family life "ordinary".
- This royal news comes after it was revealed that Meghan Markle's moment of "independence" on her wedding day was achieved with the help of Prince Charles.
A royal expert has revealed that Carole, who appeared to be Kate's double in an old photo shared by her recently, bypasses security when she turns up at Kensington Palace, with staff being so used to her visits to see her grandkids.
It's also been claimed that Carole and her husband, Michael Middleton, play a vital role in keeping Kate and William's family life in line with a sense of normality, with Carole “whizzing” round in her Land Rover to help out.
Speaking on the True Royalty documentary Kate Middleton: Heir We Go Again, royal pro Katie Nicholl explained, “One of the things that allows William and Kate to be so ordinary is the presence of the Middletons in their lives.
“Carole is a regular through those golden gates at Kensington Palace. She whizzes through in her Land Rover. There is no security because everybody knows her. She turns up to help with bedtime and bath time.
“She is absolutely indispensable.”
Carole recently branched out in her career by launching a royal-inspired work project that mirrors the Cambridge family's eco-friendly mindset.
Kate and William have been increasingly environmentally focussed in recent years, with the future King even fronting the Earthshot Prize 2021.

Now Carole has followed in their footsteps and teamed up with Big Blue Ocean Cleanup to launch sustainably sourced party ranges for kids as part of her partyware business, Party Pieces.
Speaking about her King and Queen of the Sea party line, Carole said, "I am excited to be supporting the incredible work that Big Blue Ocean Cleanup does to protect our oceans.
"At Party Pieces we want to make it easier for people to celebrate consciously—our new sustainably sourced ranges help to protect the planet without compromising on the magic of parties."
