Kate Middleton’s mother ‘very worried’ over her daughter’s health – she ‘clucked around like a mother hen,’ expert says

Kate Middleton’s mother 'very worried' over her daughter’s health – she ‘clucked around like a mother hen,’ expert says.


While the Princess of Wales is recuperating from her abdominal surgery, her loved ones provide her with the much needed support.

Her husband, Prince William, is balancing between his royal duties and taking care of the kids, which includes taking them to school and to various of their activities, among the rest.

But among those who are there for Kate at all times are her parents and her siblings.

parents started their company, Party Pieces, the future Princess was just a five-year-old girl. As they were preparing for the celebration of her birthday, they realized that the market lacked elegant tablescapes, as per the Vanity Fair. This was how the idea for a business was born. Thanks to their company, the Middletons made millions and were able to provide great life for their three children, Kate, Pippa, and James, and that included boarding schools.

“Party Pieces was literally born at our kitchen table, so I suppose the ‘big break’ moment came when I realized there were lots of other parents looking for more affordable and imaginative partyware and that I had correctly identified a gap in the market for quality products that added something special,” Carole, Kate’s mother, told SheerLuxe.

“It was so exciting knowing I had a business idea that could work.”

Not only Carole and her husband Michael were involved in the rise of the family company but their children too.

“Pippa wrote our ‘Party Times’ blog, James did the cakes when he first left school and Catherine developed our first birthday and baby category,” Carole revealed.

“My husband and I were young and a little inexperienced, but very enthusiastic, so we didn’t worry too much.”

It has been reported by a few magazines that nowadays the Middletons’ company is not doing well and that they are $3.3 million in debt.

When Kate started dating William and later became part of the royalty, her mother feared that she would “lose” her because she believed the royal life and the Firm would “swallow” her. Of course, at the time, she kept those thoughts to herself.

Even before she got involved with William, Kate experienced bullying. While attending the all-girls boarding school Downe House for which her parents paid around £28,000 pounds in tuition, Kate experienced a very hard time. According to her former classmates, she was often teased and bullied and she felt like she didn’t fit there.

A friend at a later school, Gemma Williamson, previously told the Daily Mail, “Apparently, she had been bullied very badly, and she certainly looked thin and pale. She had very little confidence.” Kate’s former classmate Emma Sayle said the princess hated that her school was “cliquey.”

“It is a very cliquey school, and there was a lot of pressure,” she told RSVP Live, as quoted by Express.

“The girls were all high achievers, and there were lots of girls with eating disorders. Everyone wanted to be the best, the fittest, the prettiest. I think Kate was miserable from the start.”

“Being especially slender and a head taller than her peers, she stood out for the wrong reasons and was teased for being gangly and lanky,” royal expert Katie Nicholl added.

Later on, Kate experienced bullying again. This time, by William’s friends.

Speaking on Vanity Fair’s DYNASTY podcast last year, royal expert Katie Nicholl – author of The New Royals – described how William’s “snooty” friends whispered “doors to manual” when Kate arrived at one of West London’s nightclubs.

The prince’s aristocratic friends who were referred to as the “Glosse Posse,” a reference to their Gloucestershire roots, didn’t feel like Kate was on their level. However, she never rose to the “derogatory” comments made towards her, but decided to ignore them.

“It was never water off a duck’s back, but she has extraordinary strength of character and resilience. I’ve never once seen or heard of her losing her temper,” a royal aide told the Sunday Times Magazine.

William never let anyone mock Kate. When his friends didn’t treat her right, he would stop the insults right away. According to a 2021 article published by Daily Mail, “[William] flies off the handle at any sign of Kate being patronised and stamps that out very quickly. It’s one of his triggers,” a royal source said.

“Over the years, many people have come up with great ideas for her, but if they are put across in a dismissive way, they’ve got pretty short shrift from him.”

“When Kate felt isolated from his life, he confronted the ‘friends’ who were not only abusive toward her but also her mother, mocking her English [and] calling her ‘door to manual’ as she used to be a hostess. [William] made it clear he didn’t tolerate disrespect to [Kate] or his in-laws,” royal expert named Canellecitadelle on Twitter shared.

One time, people referred to Kate’s family as to “the en masse Middletons.” This was because the family would show up to an event in a “pristine” Land Rover, bringing with them all the things that come with an upper-class picnic.

“The snootiness of the upper classes leveled at what they called the ‘en masse Middletons,’ this idea that the Middletons would turn up for a picnic at a social event for example and they would turn up in their pristine Land Rover that had been newly polished and they had a brand new Fortnum and Masons hamper, all of the paraphernalia that comes with an upper-class picnic,” Katie Nicholl explained on the DYNASTY podcast.

“But of course, [they were] alongside the sort of true aristocratic double baron titles that turn up at these events, in their muddy Land Rovers, with their moth-eaten blankets that are full of holes and some sort of oddly cobbled together picnic with hardboiled eggs rather than M&S finest.”

As time passed by, Britons started showing their appreciation for Kate, and today, she’s high on the list of favorite members of the Firm.

Now that Kate is recovering from her surgery, which the public believes was quite more serious since the Palace failed to provide more details, her mother is by her side and helps around the children.

But Carole is said to be worried for her daughter’s health.

According to former BBC Royal correspondent Jennie Bond, Carole Middleton was “very worried” about her daughter and “clucking around like a mother hen.”

In 2018, on her birthday, Carole spoke with The Telegraph about her “biggest fear” of losing a family member.

“My biggest fear [as her offspring grew up] was that I’d lose my family, but we’ve stayed close.” She went on: “There are times when they say, “Can you do this, or that?” and I can’t quite. But they like the fact that I work,” she said, as per Birmingham Live.

“Her parents are an enduring factor in the upbringing of their grandchildren,” a source told People Magazine. “And they will be a reassuring presence when she goes back to Windsor to recuperate.”
