"Kate is a modern woman with modern values," the Mirror quoted a source, as saying. "As far as she's concerned, so long as her daughter Lila Grace is happy and surrounded by the people she loves, then she's happy too. This means inviting both Lila's dad, Jefferson, and her boyfriend, Jamie to her Cotswolds home and sod the consequences.
"Yes, it may be a little awkward and there are bound to be squabbles over who gets the last roast potato, but Kate reckons as long as she acts as a buffer, all will be fine. "Jamie loves Lila and Kate and obviously wants to be with them on Christmas day. He is less keen on the ex hanging around. When Kate told him she wanted Lila to be with both parents on December 25th, Jamie wasn't exactly thrilled."
"It's probably fair to say Jamie wouldn't be distraught if Jefferson choked on the turkey wishbone," the source added.
