The royal family in the UK has quite enough going on without getting into Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming interview, thank you very much — or so Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge’s mom Carole seems to be saying.

Carole describes herself as being a hands-on grandmother, and cherishes her time with Prince William and Kate’s kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, as well as Pippa and James’ son Arthur. But the COVID-19 pandemic has made distance necessary, and Carole hopes things will look very different in the coming year.

While there may be stormy waters on this side of the pond, Kate and William can at least look forward to welcoming their kids’ new cousin
