Carole, Middleton, the mother of three, gave an insight into what it’s like to attend a royal event in her interview with the Telegraph.
After Catherine married William she became the Duchess of Cambridge, and now, Princess of Wales, but to the doting mum Carole, she is simply her daughter.
Carole Middleton, the mother of Catherine, has been a part of the royal family for over a decade. In a recent interview, she opened up about what it’s really like to attend royal events and the pressures that come with it.
As a regular attendee of royal weddings, state banquets, and other high-profile events, Carole Middleton has had to navigate the intricacies of royal protocol and etiquette. She admitted that it can be intimidating at first, but with time and experience, she has become more comfortable in these settings.
One of the most challenging aspects of attending royal events, according to Middleton, is the scrutiny that comes with it. The media and the public pay close attention to what she wears, how she behaves, and who she talks to. As the mother of the future queen, she is often in the spotlight, and there is a lot of pressure to get everything right.

Middleton also revealed that there are many unwritten rules that one must follow when attending royal events. For example, it’s considered impolite to leave a table before the queen or other senior members of the royal family have finished their meal. It’s also important to know how to curtsy properly and address members of the royal family by their correct titles.

Carole also spoke about another famous royal event – Prince William and Kate’s wedding back in 2011 – and how Kate had gone to her for advice. “We talked about music… everything. I was involved lots with both Pip’s and Catherine’s weddings,” she said.
“But I think the most important thing, as a parent, is to listen to what your daughter wants. You can have all the ideas in the world, but it has to be about them. And don’t muscle in on the guest list.” Carole also revealed her nerves before the wedding: “Like every mother, I wanted to look my best, make my children proud and enjoy the day. I honestly don’t think I was any more stressed than any other mother-of-the-bride.”
Despite the challenges, Middleton emphasized that attending royal events is also a great privilege. She has had the opportunity to meet and interact with some of the most important people in the world, and to witness historic moments firsthand.
She also revealed that the royal family is very supportive and welcoming and that they go out of their way to make sure everyone feels comfortable and included. She described the queen as “an incredible role model” and praised her for her dedication to public service.
In the interview, Middleton also talked about how she prepares for royal events. She said that she tries to choose outfits that are appropriate for the occasion but also comfortable and practical. She also pays attention to her posture and body language and tries to project confidence and poise.
