Kate Middleton’s parents meet Queen Elizabeth for the first time, just days before the royal wedding, as Kate Middleton introduces her parents to the queen.
The queen, 85, and her husband, Prince Philip, 89, had lunch with their grandson’s future in-laws, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton, at Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, according to the spokeswoman for the Buckingham Palace.
Sources described the atmosphere at the lunch, which took place nine days before the wedding of William and Kate on April 29, as cordial.
Michael Middleton, 61, and his 56-year-old wife do not live far from Windsor Castle, in the county of Berkshire, where they have a mail-order business selling party accessories.
It was not clear if Prince William was present during the meeting of her grandmother and his future parents in law.
