Carole Middleton, 69

The Princess of Wales' mother Carole Middleton always looks so sophisticated when we see her at official royal outings - it's clear to see where her daughter Kate gets her sense of style from.

Carole has seven grandchildren to keep her busy: William and Kate's three children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, nine, and Prince Louis, six, and her daughter Pippa's three kids, Arthur, five, Grace, three, and Rose, one. She's also grandma to her son James' little boy, Inigo, seven months.

Carole has previously revealed her joy at playing with her grandchildren, telling Good Housekeeping: "I want to run down the hills, climb the trees and go through the tunnel at the playground." She added: “As long as I am able to, that’s what I’ll be doing. I cook with them, I muck around dancing, we go on bike rides.”

Honestly, life makes me happy and I’m very aware of how lucky I am. I’ve worked hard all my life, nobody has given me anything on a plate, but I wake up each morning thinking how fortunate I am. I’m very fit and healthy now – knock on wood – and I try to look after myself."

Our hearts are broken, and I am having to learn to live without my only daughter. We truly love all of you, and we feel your prayers. Thank you so much for caring so deeply for our family."
