Princess Kate left her one-year-old son George with her mother earlier this month and the thrilled Carole Middleton wasted no time in doting on the darling little prince.
According to People on Thursday, Kate's mother, Carole Middleton, looked after George while William and Kate were in New York in order to give Maria Borrallo, the nanny, a break.
Carole took her grandson to a farmer's market outside of Bucklebury, where she lives with her husband and George's grandfather Michael Middleton.
George sported a small tweed jacket as Carole brought him around the market, allowing the boy to sample the different foods and even partake in some crafts. He especially liked a stall which offered some delicious Christmas pudding for which the boy had two whole servings.
Carole was thoughtful and attentive when it came to her grandson, boasting of him to others and watching him with a natural maternal instinct. The villagers were rather pleased to get a view of the royal child, whom they watched with joy from a respectful distance.
On Dec. 25 Carole and Michael attended church for Christmas at Sandringham Estate with their daughter, her husband, and Queen Elizabeth. They spent the holiday at Amner Hall with the couple and even went hunting with William, though the pregnant Kate stayed behind to watch after George.
Princess Kate is expected to give birth to her second child in April.
