Kate Middleton Talks About Her Struggle With Motherhood


Today, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, attended the launch of Family Action's FamilyLine, a UK-based helpline that's been established to support families and their caregivers. We could make a "kids are a royal pain" pun here, but her three children are too young for that joke.

Kate Middleton getting real about the struggles of motherhood, including the lack of information available once babies reach the infant stage, can go a long way in making other moms, or in this case, mums, feel less alone.

"She may have slightly different circumstances but we all have the same struggles and challenges". Speaking at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists a year ago, she said: "Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience".

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge made a visit to the charity Family Action and revealed that she also experiences motherhood woes, pinpointing the exact age of her first two children, Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, three, that she found most hard as a parent. "After that, there isn't a huge amount of books to read", she told US Weekly.

There was no argument from the 37-year-old, however, and he stopped and waited patiently for his entourage to catch up with him. As Nadal served at 5-4, Berdych complained to the umpire about the finicky Spaniard being too slow between points.

Truth. Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 8 months, may be adorable, but the 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is probably exhausted just like you. "Nothing can really prepare you for you the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother".

The telephone, text, and email service is for anyone who is struggling with their family life, including parenting, relationship troubles, debt, addiction, and mental health.

Kate has set up a steering group of experts which meets monthly, and her visit was hosted by David Holmes, chief executive of Family Action, who is a member of the project.
