Queen finally meets Kate Middleton’s parents

London, April 21 (ANI): The Queen and Prince Philip hosted Kate Middleton’s parents, Michael and Carole, “at a private lunch at Windsor Castle” on Wednesday, confirmed Buckingham Palace.

It is apparently the first time the Queen, who is official host and in whose name the gold-embossed wedding invitations have been sent, had met the couple, reports the Guardian.

The fact she had hitherto reportedly “not yet felt the need” to meet them raised some eyebrows.

But proper social niceties were observed when the Middletons, self-made millionaires through their party planner mail order business, made the short trip from Bucklebury, Berkshire, to the gathering, described by a discreet source as having enjoyed a “warm atmosphere”. (ANI)
