Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge is set to make the up coming tour of Australia a family affair, as according to a new report Carole Middleton will be accompanying her daughter and Prince William Down Under to look after baby Prince George next year.
While it's yet to be officially announced it's been widely hinted that Kate and Wills will be heading to Oz next year and will be taking little George, who was born in July with them.
The hands on parents are reportedly hoping grandmother Carole, 58, will join them for some of the visit to take care of George. Kate and Wills have employed a nanny, 71 year-old Jessie Webb, who looked after Princes William and Harry when they were young, but she's unlikely to make the trip.

“They don’t want just anyone helping out in Australia and think Carole would be perfect," a source told The Mirror.
With Jessie unable to take care of George, nanny Carole, who Kate lived with for the first few weeks of motherhood at her family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, is the first choice to step in.
“William has always admired the close relationship between Carole and Michael and how they’ve raised their children in such a happy environment," the source claimed. "That’s what he wants for George, so he and Kate are enlisting their help whenever they can.”

The royal tour will see the couple undertake a non-stop schedule of events and no doubt the crowds will be eager to see the third in line to the throne.
Kate and Wills are said to be keen to avoid hiring a large contingent of staff as they want to give George a "normal" upbringing.
"Kate doesn't want George to be more used to the sight of the help than to his own parents," an insider told Us Weekly recently.
