Carole Middleton has given a nod to one of her lesser-know grandchildren by sharing a sweet new Instagram photo.

Carole Middleton has paid a rare tribute to Pippa Middleton's daughter Rose as she shares the details of her new partywear collection.

The mother-of-three, to Kate Middleton, Pippa and James, is often pictured at royal events such as the Christmas Carol Concert and the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

And while she has previously spoken of her well-known grandchildren, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, four the grandmother has three other grandchildren - Arthur, four, Grace, one, and Rose, aged seven months - the children of her daughter Pippa Middleton.

Pippa gave birth to her third child (opens in new tab), a daughter, called Rose, with her husband James Matthews back in July and it was reported that she had moved home to be closer to her mum and sister (opens in new tab).

So it comes as no surprise that Carole would want to give a nod to her youngest grandchild while promoting the beautiful new party table wear collection.

She captioned the image, "A Very English Rose is the perfect collection for all occasions this spring. We think it is perfect for a baby shower with the floral design and rose gold accessories."

And one fan applauded Carole's nod by writing, "Rose baby" followed by an applauding hand emoji.

Meanwhile, another fan said, "So pretty!" when speaking of the collection.

And her party table wear range is sparking interest on both sides of the Atlantic, with one overseas fan writing, "How would someone be able to order from the USA? Lovely cake."

Carole previously revealed her own birthday plans (opens in new tab) with George, Charlotte and Louis, as she celebrated turning 68.

And Carole has proven to be a big influence on Prince William and Kate, who are said to be raising their kids the 'Carole Middleton' way (opens in new tab).

Kate recently shared how her mum had 'shaped' her royal passion when she uploaded a throwback snap for her Shaping Us campaign.
