Kate Middleton's Mom Is Already Very Involved In Her New Baby's Life

Some parents have a strict no-guests policy when they first bring their newborn home, choosing instead to relax and get to know their child a bit before entertaining outside visitors. We can imagine Kate Middleton and Prince William do not have that luxury because their new baby girl is also the country's newest princess. Kate and Will have been at their Kensington Palace home for just one day, and have already welcomed a slew of family members—though you may be surprised to hear who hasn't met their baby yet.


Kate's mom, Carole Middleton, has reportedly been the most involved member of either family so far. She stepped up to the plate and watched Prince George while Kate and Will were at the hospital giving birth, and she and Kate's younger sister, Pippa Middleton (whom we hear may also be chosen as godmother to the princess), returned to the palace on Sunday, with dad Michael right behind them, to visit their new granddaughter again.

Other Sunday visitors included Prince Charles and Camilla and Will and Kate's good friend Emilia Jardine-Paterson, who is little George's godmother.

Prince Harry is working in Australia at the moment and hasn't been able to meet his new niece yet, but called them right after she was born and put out a statement letting the world know she is "beautiful."

It's a bit surprising to learn that Queen Elizabeth has yet to meet her great-granddaughter, but at the same time, she's 89, for God's sake. We're sure she'll get around to it as soon as possible. And she did sweetly wear all pink at her first public appearance after Kate and Will gave birth.

We're glad to hear Kate and Will have so much support and help because transitioning to two children can feel more like going from one to five children overnight.

Would you be happy about entertaining so many guests so soon after giving birth?
