How Perfect Carole Middleton Made Other Parents At School Feel Inadequate

Carole Middleton is the subject of a major profile in this month’s new edition of British society mag Tatler, who have a special royal baby edition out tomorrow.

In the piece, a parent whose child was at school with Kate and Pippa at Marlborough College, says that even then the perfect Middletons had a way of making other people feel inadequate.

The mother told Tatler magazine: "There was always something slightly galling about having your child at school with the Middletons. Every pristine item of their clothing would have a beautifully sewn-in name tape, for instance. There were huge picnics at sports day; the smartest tennis rackets, that kind of thing. It made other families feel rather hopeless."
