The Middletons are known to have been welcomed with open arms by the Queen after Kate's mother Carole rode shotgun with the Queen, who personally Chauferred Kate's parents around in her Range Rover in 2016.

Carole, who was pictured in the front seat of the car, was driven by the Queen, during her summer holiday stay with husband Michael at Her Majesty's Scottish Estate, Balmoral.

Both the Queen and the Middletons are known to be big fans of outdoor pursuits, such as shooting, hunting and fishing so it feels natural that the extended family should make an appearance at the celebrations for the Queen's epic milestone.

HELLO!'s royal correspondent, Emily Nash, said in 2016: "I think there is a genuine affection towards Kate and her family."

"William loves them and clearly wants them to be very much a part of his family life with George and Charlotte, and his grandmother clearly appreciates this."

William and Kate are due to head to Wales next Saturday during the bank holiday weekend, so whether the Middletons will be part of the celebrations or not, grandmother Carole may help with babysitting duties for her daughter and son-in-law as she has many times before.

Both parties share an undeniable love for the three very special youngsters – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Carole and Michael are besotted with their grandchildren, while the Queen is always thrilled to welcome a new member to her growing family.
