AceShowbiz - Kate Middleton was apparently lonely during her early motherhood. When visiting the Ely and Caerau Children's Centre in Wales, the Duchess of Cambridge opened up about feeling "isolated" because her family wasn't around when she became a first-time mother to son Prince George.
On Wednesday, January 22, the future console queen recalled her days when she moved to Anglesey with Prince William and their then-newborn child. At the time, her husband was still serving in the Royal Air Force. "It's nice to be back in Wales," she confided.
"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 38-year old went on to add. "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."
This visit followed the launching of her "5 Big Questions on the Under 5s." It was a survey in which the U.K. citizens would be able to share their experiences as parents. The survey would run from January 21 to February 21 and began by the U.K. 24-hour tour starting from MiniBrum at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum. "Parents, carers and families are at the heart of caring for children in the formative years, so that is why I want to listen to them," the mother of three explained in a post.
"As a parent I know how much we cherish the future health and happiness of our children," Kate continued. "I want to hear the key issues affecting our families and communities so I can focus my work on where it is needed most. My ambition is to provide a lasting change for generations to come."
