    Kate Middleton's gran was in top-secret WW2 codebreaker cntr

    The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is visiting the newly refurbished, top secret, WW2 codebreaking site at Bletchley Park today.

    Now it's been revealed Kate's own Grandmother, Valerie Glassborow and her twin sister Mary, worked there during the war. Their job titles were 'Duty Officers' but that's about all that's known, what with it being top secret and all.

    There is a great article and pictures about the refurbishment of Bletchley Park here. I love what they've done projecting 'people' onto the walls - especially the lady with the cup of tea and blanket to keep warm!

    Looks like Kate will get a chance to sleuth the family history a little more today, as one of her grans' co-workers will be there for the visit.

    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Here's a set of photos of Kate's visit today. He did a little Morse code, they say.
