So what do you do when your daughter happens to be Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge? Well, it seems that you just go out and get a job to pass the time, that’s what. And that is exactly what Carole Middleton has reportedly gone ahead and done.

According to The Sun, a source has revealed that Carole is going about her day as a school crossing guard, helping her grandson, five-year-old Prince George, and all of his little friends across the street each month as part of a school initiative. Now that’s one nice grandmother. My grandmother used to take her teeth out and scare me in the middle of the night. But I guess every family is different. Thanks, grandma.

The 63-year-old reportedly escorts Prince George and other kids at St Thomas’s Battersea school in West London. The source stated: “The grandparents are encouraged to get involved and be a part of daily school life. There’s a rota for a couple of jobs, and lollipop lady’ing is one of the most popular. Carole has no airs and graces, and really gets stuck in — she is very popular with staff and pupils alike.”

I can’t say I’m very shocked that the mother of Kate Middleton herself is quite popular. Yep, can’t say I am shocked at all.

And yes, believe it or not, apparently “lollipop lady” is what they call a crossing guard out there in the UK. Man, those Brits just make everything sound so much better. And it is quite nice that George gets to see his grandmother as often as he wants, especially since Carole is doing everything she can to make sure that her grandson gets to and from school safely.
