Just a month ahead of the expected arrival of royal baby number two, there's been a bit of in-law drama (at least, reportedly) swirling around the Cambridges: For starters,some outlets have claimed that Prince Charles is not pleased with the lack of time he gets with his grandson, while Kate's parents get plenty of face time with Prince George. While that's likely all pishposh (though, really how could anyone spend enough time with those cheeks?!), Prince Charles might be a bit jealous about the latest royal development—that Carole and Michael Middleton are moving in with William and Kate.

Yes, even royals are evidently not immune to the need to call on mom and dad for some help. The Daily Mail reports that after staffers at Kate and Williams' estate quit last month, they were in serious need of some extra hands.

Now, this arrangement will apparently only last until Kate gives birth next month, but there are some very pressing responsibilities for the Middletons to tackle until that day comes. "Kate's father Michael is thought to be overseeing the gardening, and has been involved in making arrangements to clear a mole infestation which has ruined a pretty lawn overlooking the Sandringham estate," reports the Daily Mail. Those damn moles.

But in all seriousness, it's well known that Kate is very close with her mother, so it's understandable that she'd want to see out the rest of her pregnancy with her mom by her side for moral support. And all in-law nightmare clichés aside, William was apparently in full support of this arrangement. Sorry, Prince Charles!
