Kate Middleton's Mom Carole Made a Sweet Secret Delivery: 'She's Incredibly Kind'
Kate Middleton's mother, Carole Middleton, has proven to be a caring neighbor during the coronavirus pandemic.
The famous grandmother of the royal children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis secretly looked after a resident affected by COVID-19 near the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, about 50 miles west of London.
"Her neighbor was very sick with the virus and she visited her every day with homemade soup," a close source told PEOPLE. "She just left it on her doorstep and nobody knew about it."
The mother of three and the grandmother of four (including Pippa's son Arthur) "did it simply because they thought it was right," added the nearby source. The neighbor has since recovered completely.
This week's PEOPLE cover story exclusively mentions that Kate's mother's portrayal of being intrusive is "undeserved" in a recent issue of British Tatler magazine.
"No way would you describe her like that," says the nearby source at Carole, 65. "She's an incredibly friendly person."
