Royal Family News: The Middletons Are More Influential to the Cambridge Kids Than the Royal Family
A new documentary features the opinions of several experts who question the impact that The Firm has on their upbringing.
Channel 5 will air the documentary When the Middletons Met the Monarchy, on Saturday.
Royal watchers Jennie Bond and Tom Quinn assert that Carole and Michael Middleton will end up spending the most time with Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.
Royal Family News: Who Has More Influence On The Cambridge Children?
Quinn said, ‘I suspect everyone thinks that in terms of the children, the royal family will inevitably have the most influence, but that is entirely wrong because they are, “too formal and stuck in its ways.”
Bond said there is “tension” in the family and Kate will turn to her mother Carole for, “help, advice, and guidance,” over the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
She said, “I suppose there is a little tension at times between who gets to see the grandkids the most. Kate will always turn to Carole for help, advice guidance, and just get together and romping around with the kids – possibly before she would get together with Camilla and Charles.”

Quinn revealed that Charles was stunned when the couple chose to have their country home in Norfolk, more than 200 miles from his home of Highgrove in Gloucester.
And Richard Kay discussed the importance of Carole and Michael to William.
“Prince William has said, “Look I am not always going to be available for the royal family, I have another family and that is Mike and Carole Middleton and that is very important to me and Kate and my children.”
Michael and Carole Middleton met while each was working for British Airways. He was an aircraft dispatcher and she was an air hostess. They married in Buckinghamshire in 1980.

Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl chimed in to agree to say, “William made it clear the Middleton’s couldn’t be cast aside.”
Royal watcher Ashley Pearson stated that the Cambridge children will have a “modified” royal childhood, more in line with Kate’s upper-middle-class childhood in the quiet village of Bucklebury in West Berkshire.
