Kate Middleton’s mom, Carole Middleton, has a new monthly job involving her grandson Prince George.

Clemmie Moodie, a journalist for The Sun, revealed that the grandmother of five escorts Prince George and his classmates across the road each month as part of a school initiative. The 63-year-old wears a yellow jacket while on the job.

“The grandparents are encouraged to get involved and be a part of daily school life. There’s a Rota for a couple of jobs, and lollipop lady’ing is one of the most popular. Carole has no airs and graces, and really gets stuck in – she is very popular with staff and pupils alike,” a source said.

Carole has a close relationship with her grandchildren, and she is most likely already bonding with Prince William and Middleton’s youngest child Prince Louis. But in author Tom Bower’s book, “The Rebel Prince: The Passion, Power, and Defiance of Prince Charles,” it has been revealed that there were some plans to snub Carole years ago.

“After his own marriage, William chose to retreat with Kate to Norfolk, where they could preserve their privacy. They also preferred to spend Christmas with their parents rather than at Sandringham with the other royals. The distance between Highgrove and Norfolk isolated the Prince from his grandchildren, and allowed Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, to take charge,” Bower wrote (via Express).

The author revealed that Prince Charles became worried that the Middletons will usurp him, and the future King’s aides picked up on this fear. As a result, they decided to ignore Carole on several social occasions. Prince William was upset over the snub that he consulted Queen Elizabeth II.

To make up for Prince Charles’ aides’ mistake, the Queen invited members of the press to Balmoral so that they could take photos of her driving around with Carole.

Bower’s claims have not been confirmed by Prince Charles or any member of his staff.
