Carole, 63, and Michael, 68, were already millionaires, thanks to their heritage and business skills, when Kate met William. A little royal publicity definitely gave Carole Middleton's company a little boost.

The royal status definitely works in favor of the Middletons; however, it all comes with a price. Prince Charles' biography recently revealed that Carole had a falling out with William's father. Apparently, Charles didn't like that William and Kate preferred to spend time with her side of the family.
