Duchess Catherine: Rare appearance with her family
Duchess Catherine, 39, is rarely accompanied by her own family on royal appointments. But at the “Royal Variety Performance” her parents Michael Middleton, 72, and Carole Middleton, 66, obviously made an exception. As pictures of the event show, Kate and Prince William, 39, were accompanied by the two and took a seat together in a box in the Royal Albert Hall in London. Duchess Catherine’s brother James Middleton, 34, and his wife Alizée Thevenet, 32, also did the honors.
The fact that Kate’s family rarely takes part in royal events is by no means a sign of a bad relationship. On the contrary: Duchess Catherine and Prince William have a special bond with the Middleton. Above all, Carole is supposed to be a special caregiver for her son-in-law, who had to lose his own mother much too early. At the “Royal Variety Performance”, however, Kate’s family members seem to have deliberately held back. While the 39-year-old fascinated in a breathtaking glitter robe, her mother and sister-in-law chose subtle dresses in black. James and Michael Middleton obviously didn’t want to cause a stir either and opted for simple, if elegant black suits.
