Carol Middleton, Micheal Middleton
The Middleton family is at war with each other as less famous relations charge Carole of being too posh for family events at more normal Middleton households. Contrary to common belief, the Middleton family is fairly extensive and Carole is being accused of cutting her less wealthy relations out of her life as Carole flaunts her status as grandmother to the future King of England.

Despite the hype as a close family, (“thick as thieves” as a documentary described them) the Middleton family is in fact a much larger family than often portrayed, with lesser known relations who work as solicito...

After a few photos of some of the boys posing in their suits, Madonna uploaded a photo of her sneakers to either side of the same type of ...
