Kate Middleton’s mom, Carole Middleton is reportedly very protective of her children and grandchildren.

In its Jan. 3 issue, New Idea claimed that the matriarch wants to talk to Meghan Markle when the latter visits the United Kingdom for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee in June.

A source claimed that when the two women cross paths, Carole will confront Markle about all the lies that she’s been spreading about Prince William’s wife.

“Carole is a real mama bear with her children, even when one of them is the future queen. Her blood boiled when she heard Meghan on Oprah accusing Kate of making her cry,” the source said.

The insider also claimed that Carole asked the palace staff for Markle’s itinerary so that she can have an idea when she can talk to the latter.

“As the mother of the future queen and the grandmother of the future king, Carole has a certain power at Kensington Palace. A lot of the team there are putty in her hands and would be only too happy to help. Carole doesn’t care if she has to intercept Meghan in the halls of Windsor Castle. She will make sure she gets a chance to speak with her,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt due to a number of reasons.

First, there’s no indication that Markle has plans to go to the United Kingdom and attend the queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Even if she wanted to attend the event, she won’t be allowed to do so because it’s unlikely for the queen to invite her.

And even if Markle is in the United Kingdom, it’s unlikely for Carole to want to have a word with her. After all, Carole has been staying out of the limelight for years.

There was a time when she and her husband Michael were accused of being too involved in their grandchildren’s life. After which, they decided to lead a low-key life away from the media.

In fact, Carole has not sat down for interviews in years. And she has not also commented on Markle and Middleton’s alleged feud.

If Middleton wanted to get the truth out there in the open, she can do it herself because she’s an adult and her mom doesn’t need to speak up for her.
