Kate Middleton Opens Up About Appreciating The Simple Moments With Her Children

The Duchess of Cambridge is opening up in a new way about her home life with her family!

Kate made an appearance on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast, which is hosted by bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher. In the revealing interview, she shared how lucky she feels to have had a “very happy childhood” and hopes she can do the same for her own children.

“I think the things that really resonate with me most are the simple things and actually I see that now with my own children. Life now is so busy, so distracting and actually sometimes the simple things like watching a fire on a really rainy day provides such enjoyment,” Kate shared.

“I remember that from my childhood – doing the simple things, going for a walk together, and that’s really what I try and do with my children as well because it totally strips away all the complications, all the pressures.”

Kate also shared that one of her favorite activities to do with her children is to spend time with them outside. “It’s something I’m really passionate about,” she shared. “I think it’s so great for physical and mental wellbeing and laying those foundations. It’s such a great environment to actually spend time in, building those quality relationships without the distractions of ‘I’ve got to cook’ and ‘I’ve got to do this.’ And actually, it’s so simple.”

She continued, “I’ve got this one photo of Charlotte smelling a bluebell, and really for me it’s moments like that that mean so much to me as a parent, and I try every day to put moments like that in, even if they’re small or even if I don’t have time… but that in an ideal world is what I would like to do.”

“It’s the simple things that really make a difference,” Kate added. “It’s spending quality time with your children, it’s not whether you’ve done every single drop-off and every single pick-up.”
