[editar datos en Wikidata]

Michael Middleton es el padre de Catalina de Cambridge. La familia Middleton tiene tanto riqueza como vínculos con la aristocracia británica.[1][2]​ Su tatarabuelo, William Middleton, Esq. (1807-1884), era abogado y hacendado de Gledhow Grange Estate, cerca de Leeds.[3][4]​ Se sabe que la familia Middleton brindaba entretenimiento en Leeds a la família real británica desde la década de 1920.[5][6][7]​ En abril de 2011, antes de la boda de su hija con el príncipe Guillermo, como jefe de la familia Middleton se le concedió un escudo de armas y el título de armigero.[8]

Michael Middleton nació en 1949 en Leeds donde paso sus primeros años en Moortown.[9][10]​ Su padre, el capitán Peter Middleton (1920–2010),[11]​ fue un piloto que voló junto al príncipe Felipe como su copiloto en un recorrido en avión de dos meses por América del Sur en 1962. La película British Pathé lo muestra junto al Príncipe durante el recorrido.[12][13]

Michael y Carole Middleton

El abuelo de Michael Middleton, Richard Noel Middleton (1878-1951), era, según un documental de la BBC, un abogado que conoció y se casó con la aristócrata Olivia Lupton en 1914[14]​ En 1921, Noel se convirtió en el director de la firma que su esposa Oliva Middleton (1881-1936) había heredado a la muerte de su padre.[15]​ Oliva fue miembro de la familia Lupton de Roundhay escritos en los archivos de Leeds como una dinastía política y empresarial de fabricantes de lana y terratenientes aristócratas.[16][17][18][19][20]

It was reported in July 2016, that the First World War had seen Michael's grandmother, Olive Middleton, and her second cousin, Baroness Airedale, work together for the war effort. Gledhow Hall, the nearby ancestral seat of the Baroness's family, became a VAD hospital, with Olive working there both with her cousin, The Hon. Doris Kitson (daughter of Baroness Airedale), and with her sister-in-law, Miss Gertrude Middleton, as volunteer nurses.[21][22][23]

Michael Middleton tiene tres hermanos, entre ellos Richard, cuyo hijo Adam Middleton es padrino de la hija de Catalina, princesa Carlota.[24][25]

Education and early career[editar]

Like his father, Peter, and grandfather Noel, Michael Middleton was educated at Clifton College, the public school in Bristol.[26]​ At Clifton, all three generations of Middleton men boarded at Brown's House.[27]​ The archives at Clifton record that Michael Middleton was a praepostor, the title for a college prefect at Clifton, Eton and other leading UK public schools. Middleton had represented Clifton at rugby in the 1st XV and had also gained his tennis colours.[28][29]

Middleton alma mater, Oxford University – New College, Hall

Middleton declined to follow in his father Peter's footsteps of studying at New College, at Oxford University, the alma mater of many members of Capt. Middleton's family. Middleton had been up at Oxford in the 1930s with his cousin, Cecil Middleton, a champion golfer. Peter Middleton's great uncle, the Right Hon. Lord Mayor Hugh Lupton (d.1947) and in-law, James Bryce, 1st Viscount Bryce were also Oxford alumni.[30][31][32][33]

Following Clifton, Michael Middleton worked briefly as a British Airways (BA) flight attendant. Having graduated from the company's own internal course, he then worked for BA as a flight dispatcher.[34][35]

Generations of Middleton lawyers[editar]

Michael Middleton's grandfather Richard Noel Middleton, great-grandfather John W. Middleton (d.1887) and great-great-grandfather William Middleton, Esq., were all solicitors in Leeds in Yorkshire. Richard Noel was also a founder of the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra and later the director of William Lupton and Sons Ltd., the wool manufacturing firm which his wife Olive, had inherited in 1921.[36][37][38]​ Many of Michael Middleton's relatives were solicitors in the Leeds-based family firm, Middleton and Sons. His niece, Lucy Middleton, is also a solicitor.[39][40][41]

Middleton family's political connections[editar]

It was reported in June 2014, that Michael's great grandfather, politician Francis Martineau Lupton, was the first cousin of Sir Thomas Martineau, whose nephew was World War II Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.[42][43][44]

Royal biographer Katie Nicholl revealed in 2013 that Michael Middleton's family tree is linked, via his fellow Leeds-born cousin, Lady Bullock (née Barbara Lupton),[45]​ to William Petty-FitzMaurice, 1st Marquess of Lansdowne, Prime Minister of Great Britain in 1782–83. Research also revealed that Michael Middleton is a direct descendant of King Edward III.[46][47][48][49][50]

A political event in Leeds on 27 September 1894, saw Michael Middleton's great grandfather – Liberal Unionist Francis Martineau Lupton – entertain his relative, The Right Honourable Joseph Chamberlain, a Member of Parliament and fellow Liberal Unionist. The conference was held at the Leeds Town Hall and was hosted by the Leeds and County Liberal Unionist's Club. Francis Martineau's cousin, politician and mayor Sir Thomas Martineau, was the brother-in-law of Joseph Chamberlain, father of Neville Chamberlain.[51][52][53]

Matrimonio e hijos[editar]

Su esposa , Carole Elizabeth Middleton (Goldsmith de soltera), nacida el 31 de enero de 1955 en Perivale Maternity Hospital en Ealing.[54][55][56]​ Hija del constructor Ronald Goldsmith (1931–2003) y Dorothy Harrison (1935–2006), fue criada en una pequeña casa en Southall,[57]​ donde asistió a la escuela local.[58]

La pareja se conoció cuando ambos trabajaban en la British Airways (BA) como auxiliares de vuelo.[26]​ En 1979 Michael se había promovido, convirtiéndose en un despachador de vuelo, uno de los casquillos de élite de British Airways,[59]​El aeropuerto de Heathrow en Londres, donde mantenía un seguimiento de la flota de aerolíneas en el suelo. La pareja se casó el 21 de junio de 1980, en la iglesia de San James en Dorney, Buckinghamshire.[60]​ Compraron una casa victoriana adosada en Bradfield Southend, cerca de Reading, Berkshire.[26]

La pareja tiene tres hijos (dos hijas y un hijo). Tras el nacimiento de sus hijas Catherine Elizabeth (en 1982) y Philippa Charlotte (en 1983),[61]​ la familia se mudó a Amman, Jordan, donde Michael trabajó como gerente de BA desde 1984 a 1987.[62]
