Kate Middleton will be taking her tiny bundle of joy home to her parents’ house in Berkshire for the first six weeks after the royal baby’s birth in July, her uncle Gary Goldsmith has revealed.
In a bid to avoid the stress of the spotlight straight after the birth, the Duchess’ relative told The Telegraph about Kate’s plans to catch up on some much-needed R&R with her newborn by moving back to her family home where mum Carole, dad Michael and of course, husband Prince William will be on hand to help.
“The fact that they’re taking the baby to Carole’s for the first six weeks is genius,’ the 27-year-old businessman said. “Carole’s a brilliant mum – she is 10 years older than me and practised on me – and I think it’s the right thing to do. It will take the pressure off Kate.”
Despite’s the fact that Kate’s decision means she’ll be breaking with royal tradition, Gary was full of praise for his niece’s perfectly princess-like behaviour. “Kate’s doing brilliantly in that role”, he said. “She’s made the Royal family more accessible. And you throw a baby into that mix – they’re going to do it fabulously. You just know that the baby is going to be introduced to the public fantastically well.”
July 13th (Kate’s due date) can’t come quickly enough. We’re already dying for our first glimpse of the little one!
