Reports have surfaced in the National Enquirer that the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, are enjoying time apart, and are allegedly 'heading for divorce'.
And in a further blow, Carole has reportedly moved into Kensington Palace - and it doesn’t look like she’s leaving any time soon!
'Kate thought she was just staying for a few days, but that was six weeks ago,' a royal source claimed to the National Enquirer.
'Things look really bad between her parents. Kate really fears they could be headed for divorce.'
Carole, 63 and Michael, 68 are said to be on the verge of breaking up for good after a series of bitter rows, with NE claiming that the pair’s alleged fighting is causing a huge strain on Kate and William’s marriage.
'The kids love having their grandma there, but William is desperate for her to leave,' continues the insider.
'The last thing a young father preparing to be king needs around the house is a mother-in-law.'
None of the parties concerned have yet to respond to the Enquirer’s sensational claims.
