Kate Middleton will decide to move back home with her parents after she gives birth to her first child in July, changing the traditions of the royal family.

The Duchess of Cambridge told her friends she wants to spend her post-birth days with her mother Carole Middleton and her father Michael Middleton while adjusting to the new lifestyle of being a mother, Yahoo reported. Her parents, who own a private countryside estate, would provide a safe place from the public eye and pressures of royal life as the new mother gets to know her baby, Middleton reportedly claimed. She will plan a six-week stay without help from a maternity nurse, moving away from royal tradition.

"Kate just feels safest and most secure [when she's with her family]," a source told the Daily Mail.

Middleton has broken royal tradition before, when she and her husband Prince William spent Christmas at her parents' $7.39 million Georgian home last year instead of at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.

The royal was recently named the best-dressed pregnant celebrity by Vanity Fair. In its ranking for the world's most fashionable expecting celebrities, the magazine placed Alec Baldwin's wife, Hilaria, in second place and another Brit, Peaches Geldof, in third place.

Big U.S. names like Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz also made it into the top ten.
