During a recent visit to the charity Family Action in Lewisham, Kate Middleton talked about parenting. And yes, even though she’s a duchess, Kate is still kind of like us commoner moms.
During Middleton’s visit to the British charity, she spoke about parenting from her own perspective. “It’s so hard. You get a lot of support with the baby as a mother particularly in the early days, but after the age of one it falls away,” Middleton confessed. She also added, “Everyone experiences the same struggle.”

The Duchess of Cambridge visited @family_action’s Lewisham base today to launch their new national support line, FamilyLine. The new service connections ‘virtual’ volunteers by telephone calls, emails and texts to carers and parents in need of support. Swipe to see Her Royal Highness speaking to young carers supported by @Family_Action about the challenges they face managing their school work with caring for members of their family.
While Middleton may have more advantages than many of us mamas (a full-time nanny, a full household staff and a palace at her disposal), she still goes through the daily ups and downs that any mother of three would. And apparently that makes her really, really relatable.
One event attendee Dawn Daley noted, “When she came in it felt like just another friend. She was really nice, she was easy to talk to and interacted with us all.” Daley also said, of the Duchess, “She was very compassionate. Her being involved so much.”
