Kate Middleton's mom doesn't think Prince Harry is well-mannered enough

Prince Harry may have been born a royal but his manners aren't royal enough for one family. The NY Daily News reported on Sunday, June 22, that Carole Middleton, mom of the prince's sister-in-law Kate Middleton, doesn't think very highly of him because of his ill manners.

Proper behavior is apparently something that Carole believes is of the utmost importance. According to a source, all of her children, which besides Kate includes son James and second daughter Pippa Middleton, are “terribly well brought up." While Carole has taken care to raise her children to always behave properly, she doesn't believe the same can be said of her daughter's brother-in-law.

The source said that Carole thinks of Harry as “the sort of guy who might start flicking food across a dinner table.” Clearly, the prince's constant jokes and pranks fail to get a laugh out of Carole.

Carole shouldn't be so upset with Harry however since he does have some redeeming qualities. The source also said that while Prince William tends to keep his emotions to himself, bottling up his feelings, his brother does the exact opposite. Harry's lack of restraint means that often he's the one who's able to get things resolved when things get complicated.

For example, prior to the 2007 memorial for the late Princess Diana in London, things were getting heated between the royal family and Diana's family, the Spencers, because of the seating arrangements. The younger prince, fed up over how the situation was getting so complicated, simply called his dad, Prince Charles, and told him exactly where he would be sitting.

So Carole Middleton shouldn't be so aghast. Perhaps Prince Harry's lack of fear of speaking up will benefit her daughter Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, one of these days when she finds that she needs someone within the royal family to stick up for her and Prince William is too timid to do so?
