Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) is speaking out about the “isolation” she felt as a new mother to Prince George.
While making a visit to the Ely and Careau Children’s Centre on Wednesday (January 22) in Wales, the 38-year-old royal spoke with workers from the children and parents center as she also launched a new initiative, ’5 big questions on the under 5s’.
“It’s nice to be back in Wales,” Kate said at the event (via People). “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. 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 center like this.”
“I see amazing work you’re doing here in so many areas,” Kate continued. “It’s just bringing it to light. The critical work you’re doing has a massive social — and economic — impact later down the years.”
FYI: Kate is wearing a Zara leopard print skirt and a Massimo Dutti camel coat.
