The talented entrepreneur founded her company back in 1987, after struggling to find reasonably priced and attractive party supplies for her own children's parties, and it grew into a thriving business.

Carole also shared the news on Instagram

Carole remains a doting mum to her three grown-up children: Kate, 39, Pippa, 38, and James, 34, who tied the knot earlier this month – with the most special tribute to his mum.

James Middleton married Alizée Thevenet on Saturday 11 September, after postponing their wedding day twice.

Alizée was a beautiful bride, with pictures shared exclusively with HELLO! showing the 32-year-old wearing a white floor-length gown featuring a Bardot neckline and embroidered detailing.

The gown not only perfectly tied in with their destination wedding, which took place in Bormes-les-Mimosas, famous for being one of the most beautiful villages in the Côte d’Azur, but it also happened to be the exact dress that James' mother Carole Middleton wore on her big day with Michael.

"My something borrowed was in fact my dress from my mother-in-law Carole who last wore it 41 years ago on her wedding day in June, 1980," financial analyst Alizée explained.
