NEW mum Kate Middleton finds her family home an "oasis of calm".
The Britsh royal is currently staying at the Middleton property in Berkshire, England, following the birth of her son Prince George.
Her husband Prince William returned to work as an RAF helicopter pilot last week, and Kate is said to be greatly appreciating her mother Carole Middleton's help. In fact, it has been claimed the duchess is considering staying at her family's home for six months.
"William and Kate's living arrangements are up in the air right now," a source told British magazine Grazia. "The Middletons' home is such an oasis of calm for Kate, she is keen to stay as long as they can there, even for up to six months."
The couple's London residence in Kensington Palace is still undergoing renovations, so they won't be able to live there for some time.
It was recently reported the new parents were eager to press ahead with their move to Anmer Hall on Queen Elizabeth II's estate in Norfolk, but that now seems unlikely to happen for a while.
"Kate feels so safe and secure with her family, as does William, and they want George's first six months to be as stable as possible," an insider added.
Carole is proving to be a calming influence around her new grandson, and has apparently mastered the art of putting him down at night.
"Carole really is amazing. They are calling her 'the baby-whisperer' as she is the only one who can get him to sleep!" revealed a source.
William is believed to have one month left of working in Wales, and could then relocate to Suffolk or London.
