Kate Middleton’s mom seemed to have confronted Prince William during the time he appeared to be procrastinating about proposing to her daughter.
Carole Middleton, according to the Daily Mail, had a serious conversation with the Duke of Cambridge before Christmas 2009, when the couple visited the Middletons for the holidays.
A new book titled, Kate: The Future Queen by Katie Nicholl, claims that the future Queen’s mom was “jittery” that the William and Kate were not yet engaged and wanted to be sure her daughter was not being taken in by the royal.
From all reports William adores Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael, so much so that they fled London to their more quiet home immediately after the birth of their son, Prince George.
The new family stayed out of the public eye for the first few weeks of the Prince’s life, in Bucklebury, were Kate grew up.
But things were a bit tense in 2009, according to the book and Kate Middleton’s mom Carole had no qualms in pulling the future King aside to let him know of her worries.
Prince William reassured her that there would be a proposal very soon and she would have her grandchildren as well.
Earlier in their relationship, William’s father, Prince Charles had urged his son to make up his mind, and told him that if he couldn’t, he should let Kate go.
The couple split for a while in 2007, but reconciled after tabloids published pictures of William partying with other women and Kate seemingly sticking her tongue at him looking fabulous while hanging out with girlfriends.
All of that didn’t seem to break the bond between William and Kate and they finally got engaged the following October and in keeping with his promise, Kate Middleton’s mom has been very involved in the care of little George thus far. She recently babysat when her daughter made her first public appearance last week.
