Duchess Kate opens up about the “isolation” she felt after the birth of Prince George
The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed about how she felt as a new mum with her first son, Prince George.
The 38-year-old royal member spoke during an engagement in Cardiff where she spoke to workers at a children and parents centre about how “nice to be back in Wales” it was.
Duchess Kate lives with Prince William in Wales when he was working for the Royal Air Force.
“I was chatting to some of the mums. It was the first year and I’d just had George – William was still working with search and rescue – and we came up here and I had a tiny, tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey,” the royal admitted candidly.View this post on Instagram
“It was so isolated, so cut off. I didn’t have any family around, and he was doing night shifts.
“So … if only I had had a centre like this.”
The mum-of-three met with parents and their babies at the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre as she revealed the new focus on promoting a project that encourages a focus on early childhood.View this post on Instagram
Shortly after Prince George was born in 2013, the couple moved to the grand 18th century Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
This location was near to William’s job as a pilot with the East Anglian Ambulance Service.View this post on Instagram
After Princess Charlotte joined the family, Prince William and Duchess Kate made the decision to move to Kensington Palace in London during September 2017 so the couple could become full-time working royals and prepare for Prince George starting school.
The couple share three children together starting with Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and their youngest, Prince Louis, 1.
