Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is going to move in with her parents after giving birth (according to The Daily Mail, so who knows really). Good for her! The move isn’t going to be permanent, of course. She plans on spending the first 6 weeks there with her baby (girl?), and no nurse.
In a break with royal tradition, Kate, 31, will not employ a maternity nurse after the July birth.
Instead, she has told friends, she will live with her parents for at least the first six weeks after leaving hospital.
Kate says she ‘just feels safest and most secure’ with her family and believes that no one could be better placed to teach her about bringing up a baby than her mother, who has three children of her own.
She will particularly need her advice and moral support when Prince William returns to work as a helicopter pilot after taking his paternity leave.
Sources have confirmed that William and Kate’s plans to move into a new apartment in Kensington Palace in time for the birth have hit a huge stumbling block.
This follows the discovery of asbestos – which has to be cleared before the couple themselves, let alone a new-born child, can set foot inside.
Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, recently bought a £4.85million Georgian manor in rural Berkshire with plenty of space for their first grandchild to run around.
A recent visitor said Carole, who is ‘over the moon’ at the prospect of being a grandmother, is busy overseeing the redecoration of the house – including the installation of a new kitchen and ‘nursery-style’ room.
‘Carole fully intends to be part of this baby’s life and Catherine, for her part, plans to spend a lot of time with her parents, especially while she is waiting for the new apartment to be completed,’ they said.
[William and Kate] had hoped to move into their new home, the 57-room Apartment 1A – well before the arrival of their first child.
Wait, what the hell do they mean by “57-room”? Do they mean 57 rooms?? What??
So anyway, it’s nice to know that even Fancy-Ass Kate Middleton is moving back in with her parents, at least for a little while, even though it’s in a mansion, and not really like anyones’ life at all, yeah, never mind. Unless she’s in there nursing her baby while watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which I don’t think ever happened and ever will. I mean, come on. No way she’s a fan of that mess.
