The Princess of Wales is currently battling an unknown form of cancer.

"She’s ferried and fetched George, Louis and Charlotte, taken them to school sports matches, and given them endless support," they added. "She’s come to the rescue, provided reassurance, and has been a rock to Catherine and William as they come to terms with the news."

The source then shared that the former business owner had "been a real Mary Poppins-like figure."

The insider then took a swipe at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by stating: "Her actions are in huge contrast to those mouthing support from afar."

This cheery news comes after OK! previously reported on Carole and Michael Middleton's "shame" in trying to hide hundreds of thousands of pounds of their own debt from their sick daughter.

According to an outlet, the former owners of the one-time successful Party Pieces company, owe "£260,000 (over $329,000) insolvency firm costs" with the firm in question acknowledging the duo as owing the massive amount of money.

"Carole is desperately trying to keep Catherine fully focused on her recovery," a Middleton family source spilled. "It's a very worrying time for the family, but they are not looking for any assistance from their children and don’t want them to worry."

They added: "Catherine and her parents are very close, and they always check in with each other, but talk about the business is off limits as she needs to focus on her health."

Party Pieces "collapsed" due in part to the pandemic and "pressure on cash flow increasing," which caused the 36-year-old online megacompany to be sold off to an entrepreneur. The business started off small in 1987 and eventually grew beyond their wildest expectations as the years went by.

"Carole is understandably upset and deeply disappointed in this situation," a friend of Carole's said at the time. "Over the past five months, she really has done her best to find a buyer, who not only would take the business forward but would also honor any outstanding debts."

By the time Kate met William at St Andrew's University in 2001, Party Pieces had made Carole and Michael millionaires, upon which the close-knit household joined the upper echelons of middle-class British society. Meeting the Middletons came at a time when William was finding his way as an adult in the immediate years after Charles and Diana's divorce and the latter's tragic death in Paris in August 1997.

Now, some analysts are predicting the once lucrative Miffletons will likely ask their royal daughter for "a loan."
