Kate Middleton Opens Up About The Isolation She Felt When Prince George Was A Baby


Kate Middleton is speaking out about her early years as a mother to Prince George!

The royal mother visited the Ely and Careau Children’s Centre in Cardiff, Wales, which is a center that gives parents support and enrolls their children into kindergarten.

During the visit, Kate spoke with workers at the center during her 24-hour royal tour in the U.K. Kate and William lived in Wales when they were first married while William was stationed with the Royal Air Force.

“It’s nice to be back in Wales,” Kate said. “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.”

Kate also spoke of how impressed she is with the work being done at the center to help young families. “I see amazing work you’re doing here in so many areas,” she said. “It’s just bringing it to light. The critical work you’re doing has a massive social — and economic — impact later down the years.”
