Royal baby to spend first six weeks with Middletons


Britain's Prince William and Duchess Catherine's baby will spend its first six weeks with the Middletons.

Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith revealed the royal baby ? who’s due in July ? will live at the home of the duchess' mother, Carole Middleton, initially, which he thinks is a "genius" idea because it will relieve pressure from the Duchess of Cambridge.

He said, "You just know that the baby is going to be introduced to the public fantastically well. And the fact that they're taking the baby to Carole's for the first six weeks is genius.

"Carole's a brilliant mom ? she is 10 years older than me and practised on me ? and I think it's the right thing to do. It will take the pressure off Kate."

The entrepreneur believes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make "fabulous" parents and he praised Catherine for helping the royal family to become "more accessible".

He added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, "Kate's doing brilliantly in that role. She's made the royal family more accessible. And you throw a baby into that mix ? they're going to do it fabulously."
