The royal biographer and commentator Duncan Larcombe declared to The Mirror that Carole and Michael have acted as a ‘safety net’ for George, Charlotte and Louis, in addition to offering unconditional support to Guillermo, whom they consider their “adopted son.” It was said that the couple were ‘destroyed’ by Kate Middleton’s cancer diagnosis, but that they had come together to support both her daughter and the prince during these difficult months.

“Everyone has rallied around her, especially around her young family. Carole and Michael have put a security blanket over the children to protect them. At times like this, it’s tremendously important to Kate. It is crucial to be very attentive to the children.”

Although the Middletons have long avoided the spotlight and have rarely spoken about the princess or the royals to the press, the family has hinted at their close bond on several occasions.

Carole and Michael Middleton have been a “safety net” for the Welsh family while Kate Middleton recovers from her chemotherapy, according to royal experts.

Proud to be a grandmother, Carole declared that she will always have an active role in the lives of Princes George, Louis and Princess Charlotte: “I want to run in the fields, climb trees and go down the slides at the playground,” she told Good Housekeeping. “As long as I can, that’s what I’ll do. I cook with them, I dance and we go on bike rides.” Thanks to the Prince and Princess of Wales’s move to Windsor last year, Carole and Michael are closer to their grandchildren, and recent rumors that George may follow royal tradition and attend Marlborough College, his mother’s alma mater, it would mean he won’t be far from his Berkshire residence.

Carole and Michael have been present at several notable royal events, including Harry and Meghan’s wedding in 2018 and the late Queen Elizabeth’s funeral in 2022.

Without a doubt they will have the late queen very present today. Royal Ascot held a very special place in the heart of Elizabeth II, whose passion for racehorses led her to celebrate more than 20 victories at the prestigious event. King Charles and Queen Camilla have inherited many of the late Queen’s thoroughbreds and will be watching her horses compete all week.
