An appointment necessary?
« on: September 18, 2017, 07:13:21 AM »
If Prince William and Catherine are at Buckingham Palace, do Michael and Carole Middleton have to make an appointment to see them?

William and Kate are rarely at Buckingham Palace, Trooping of the Colour balcony appearance, Diplomatic receptions and any State Visit banquet held at BP, aside. The Cambridges' homes are at Anmer in Norfolk and KP in London, and my guess is, if Kate wants to see her mother and father or vice versa, they ring up and arrange a meeting there or at her parents' home..

Would Carole be able to drop in unexpectedly if there was a dire circumstance?

Why wouldn't Carole be able to pop in? It's not as if the Cambridges live amidst great pomp and ceremony. That will come later in their lives.

 The Queen apparently remarked after a visit to Anmer at how much the life of the family revolved around gatherings in the kitchen, (which was probably how Kate was brought up.) That says a pretty informal sort of life to me, though certainly not one that the Queen/PP and Charles/Diana and Charles/Camilla followed.

The only things that would prevent unheralded popping in by the Middletons IMO, would be the long drive up from their home to Norfolk, (it's quite a distance, though not so long to KP) and the fact that the Cambridges' engagement calendar will, after this baby's birth,  be getting quite full.

@Curryong-I agree and the only other thing that might draw them there on an informal basis would be to visit with QEII and the DoE or to use the palace swimming pool.

I think she comes and goes as she pleases. She is now helping Kate through her illness

Does not the staff have to know who is arriving and the precise time of the arrival?

If Kate's at home and members of her family call they'd phone first and then she probably tells the staff 'My mother/brother/sister are coming some time this morning' and they'd then know.

Security would have to have some advance notice, but the Cambridges don't appear to live as formal a life as QEII.
