Kate Middleton's Parents Building Granny Flat

Would You Want Your Baby's Grandparents to Build a "Granny Flat"?

Not to be outdone by their future grandchild's royal paternal grandparents, word out of the UK is that Kate Middleton's mum and dad are adding a "granny flat" to their home. The Middleton's estate — where Kate grew up — in the village of Bucklebury, Berkshire sits upon 18 acres, certainly spacious enough for visiting relatives. The addition is said to include a room for the royal couple's nanny, as well as a four-car garage.

Prince William and the duchess have been spending a lot of time with the Middletons throughout Kate's pregnancy, including a Christmas stay and now a family babymoon in Mustique.

What do you think of Kate's parents' home addition: well-intentioned or over-involved? Would you like it if your parents or in-laws did the same?

I'd say the Granny Flat (if it isn't being done with Will & Kate's blessings) could be a red flag of grandparents looking forward to being a greater influence in this child's life than the parents might welcome. It's already a bit against the couple's declared wishes -- when Kate's pregnancy was first announced, they said flat out they weren't planning on a nanny, but the Middleton's are building a room for one anyway? Hmmm... I know Kate is close with her parents but they may wind up smothering her as she settles into her roles of wife, new mother, and future queen.
