Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton are back in the headlines as news of a feud between them is circling. The strained relationship of the Queen and the Duchess are fuelled further by the appearance of Kate?s mom, Carole Middleton at the Balmoral Estate. It looks like the Queen doesn?t care to see Kate?s clingy mother.
The Queen has been urging Kate Middleton and Prince William to visit the Balmoral Estate but without Carole. However, there have been reports that the Duchess refuses to visit Queen Elizabeth?s vast estate in Scotland without her mom. It has always been known that Kate always had her mom by her side during troubling times. In the end, Mr. and Mrs. Middleton were left with no choice but to appease the Queen. This was?after Kate failed to appear in several royal engagements.

Carole and husband Michael were spotted spending time with the Queen in Balmoral. They even attended Sunday service with the royals at nearby Craithe Church on Sunday. Kate and William have been?married since?2011. And since then, the Middleton family has been constantly having their share of the spotlight in the tabloids.
Carole, along with her two children, Pippa and James are reported to have been struggling to fit in the celebrity and royal world. She?even has a reputation of being a London social climber who demands celebrity treatment and paparazzi attention everywhere she goes.
The Queen was recently photographed at the wheel of her Range Rover.?She had chauffeured Kate?s mom from a picnic and one of the family?s favorite past times, country shooting.
However, the Middletons? presence in the Balmoral estate does not mean that the Queen has accepted them with open arms. It might unfortunately mean that Kate Middleton?s relationship with the royals are getting more and more strained that her family has had to intervene.
