Does Carole Middleton like Prince William?

Prince William — and the rest of the royal family — has brought an immense amount of change to Carole Middleton and the rest of her family. And, because of that, many want to know: Does Carole Middleton like Prince William? In the past, the royal mother-in-law has kept quiet about her thoughts on the future king but she recently revealed what she really thinks of her daughter’s beloved husband.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have spent Christmas with her

Traditionally in the royal family, all royals must spend Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II at Sandringham House. However, Prince William and Kate Middleton have famously broken the tradition to spend the holidays with the Middletons in Berkshire. While we are sure Carole Middleton and family understand when they can’t join, the gesture certainly shows the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s respect and love for the Middleton family.

Carole Middleton helps out with the grandkids

Despite the fact that her daughter is a duchess with all the royal help at her fingertips, Carole Middleton still helps out with her grandkids. Kate’s mother was in and out of Kensington Palace after Prince Louis’s arrival earlier this year and offered an immense amount of help with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

She thinks the royal family events aren’t normal

Carole Middleton lives a somewhat normal life, but she knows her family — and the events she attends — isn’t normal. “It isn’t normal maybe to go to Louis’ christening or Catherine’s wedding, but, in the end, they’re all family events,” she told The Telegraph. Despite her family’s connection to the royals, Carole Middleton tries to keep her life as normal as possible.

Family first

It’s no secret that family is important to Prince William and Kate Middleton. And, perhaps a lot of their family values stem from Kate’s side of the family, especially Carole Middleton who once told The Telegraph, “Make sure whatever you do doesn’t compromise your family, because that becomes untenable.”

Carole Middleton’s family values are without a doubt ingrained in the Duchess of Sussex, as she often puts her family first. And, despite a busy schedule and access to nannies, she makes sure to still spend time with her kids.

She was afraid of losing her daughter

As her kids grew up, Carole Middleton had a lot of fear that they would move on and grow apart from their parents. “My biggest fear was that I’d lose my family, but we’ve stayed close,” she told The Telegraph. However, even after her daughter married the future King of England, the Middletons have remained close.

Today, Carole Middleton even attends royal family events (some of which don’t have anything to do with her daughter and grandchildren) and is often invited to royal family gatherings.

Carole Middleton thinks Prince William is ‘lovely’

Royal family fans want to know: Does Carole Middleton like Prince William? While the Duke of Cambridge has brought a lot of change to the Middleton family, she welcomes him with open arms and thinks highly of him. “I have two lovely sons-in-law and…I hope I’ll have a lovely daughter-in-law,” she said. While it’s not a flat-out example of her thoughts, there’s no doubt that her comment about her sons-in-law is an indication of her feelings towards Prince William.
