Prince William: Expert on 'assurance' given to Carole Middleton
Carole is currently the proud grandmother of five - three from Kate and now two from her youngest daughter, Pippa. Kate's mum told Good Housekeeping magazine that she tried not to interfere with her grandchildren's upbringing, saying she had confidence in her daughters' abilities as parents. Carole explained: "I feel it is my children's role to pass on what they think is important to their children."
She added: "I've learned to be a wise grandmother, I hope.
"I know how hard it was for me bringing up my own children, that you invest a lot in them, and don't really want a know-it-all granny out there."
Carole went on to reveal that she enjoys "mucking" around with her grandkids, when she sees them.

"I feel it is my children's role to pass on what they think is important to their children."
“I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground," she said.
"As long as I am able to, that’s what I’ll be doing.
"I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides.”
