Kate Middleton

Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton, is one glam grandma in her 60s


Carole Middleton celebrates her birthday on January 31. Next year she will be 67 but she still remains as stylish as ever, with a permanent sunny smile and fresh-faced glow.

Carole Middleton proves that the 60s really are the new 40s.

Carole spent her milestone 60th birthday on the Caribbean island of Mustique alongside daughters Kate, and Pippa as well as husband Michael and son James. Her son-in-law Prince William and the then only child, Prince George, were also present. Aside from the gorgeous beaches, another perk of Middleton’s favourite vacation spot is the ban on paparazzi. The family who has been visiting the island for several years can relax poolside, on the beach or their balconies with no prying eyes.

Even though it is her daughter who is now the royal, the entire family is in the spotlight. The mom of three (Carole) would do anything for her kids. “Carole is smart, savvy, discreet and always available for her children,” Ingrid Seward writes for HELLO! magazine, “Like a lioness with her cubs, she has protected them, none more than Kate, who needed her the most.”

It is easy to see why William has grown very fond of Carole and Michael. He has insisted upon giving his in-laws an unprecedented level of access to royal events.

Those who have met her say that Mrs Midi, as she’s called fondly around their Bucklebury, Berkshire circles, is discreet but friendly and fun too. She loves chatting about fashion and horses.

“Camilla and [Prince Charles] have entertained the Middletons on several occasions and Camilla was said to be pleasantly surprised to discover Carole’s lively and entertaining personality,” Ingrid notes.

Carole, a hands-on grandmother to George, Charlotte and Louis, has always been there for William and Kate’s needs. She certainly has some experience with handling kids. For now, the lovely lady is enjoying the sun, sand in her mid-60s.
