Kate Middleton admits motherhood can be “lonely”

The royal often speaks about motherhood, but on Thursday she was very open about the subject during a speech at the Global Academy in London.

During the event, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, also spoke with two mothers, Katie Massie-Taulor and Sarah Hesz, who created an application named “Mush”, which helps to connect mothers.

A mother of two children herself, George, 3, and Charlotte, almost 2, Catherine confessed how difficult it is to be a good mom.

“Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated,” she said [via Daily Mail]. “But, so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through.”

“It is being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out to those around you,” she added.


Lately, William and Kate have been more open than ever about personal things and experiences, an effort meant to support their “Heads Together” mental health campaign.
