A new profile story has just been published about the Duchess of Cambridge, detailing everything from Kate Middleton's inner circle to her romance with Prince William. It also took a look at the future king's relationship with his in-laws, Carole and Michael Middleton, Kate's parents.

According to the feature, which appears in the new issue of Tatler, William has been welcomed into the family (who have an unreal home in Bucklebury) with open arms. The piece, written by journalist Anna Pasternak (who previously penned a book based on Princess Diana's affair with former army officer James Hewitt) describes them as a tight-knit unit too.

"In William's eyes Carole and Michal can do no wrong," Pasternak says, before quoting an anonymous source. "[According to a friend of the Middletons] 'He absolutely adores them. Michael is charming. Really king, soft and gentle. William loves going to the country to stay with them. Their family life is so soothing for him as it's so different from his own family.'"

It also adds in that, "Another country grandee says: 'I've heard that Prince William is obsessed with Carole. She's the mummy he always wanted.'"

However, in response to the magazine running said article, Kensington Palace have issued a statement saying: "This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication."

Tatler refute this denial from the palace and say they were in contact with them in regards to running the story. So, err, yeah... jury's still out on that front. But if it is true, then it's lovely to hear that William feels so at home with Kate's parents.

Recently, Carole and Michael Middleton have been locked down in their beautiful Georgian-style manor, with an expansive garden (meaning there's plenty of room for little George, Charlotte and Louis to play in when they visit), with Kate's brother, James, and his fiancé. It's believed that they purchased the house in 2012 and it's where Prince George spent the first few weeks of his life.
