Kate Middleton’s Honesty About The Struggles Of Being A Mother Is Super Refreshing

The royals are human too y'know.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with Prince Harry too, are doing their best to open themselves up and shed the ‘stiff upper lip’ image.

Both founding members of the Heads Together charity, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are campaigning to rid the stigmas that surround mental health.

The 35 year-old mother-of-two recently opened up about her own experiences with motherhood, and it’s just so real.

Speaking at the Global Academy this week, Kate assured the other women in the meeting that feeling isolated or lonely after having children is totally normal.

‘It is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated, but actually so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through,’ The Duchess told her fellow mums, who co-founded an app called Mush that helps connect mothers.

‘It is being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out to those around you.’

The royal trio have also posted some honest videos of their first time parenting, giving the nation an insight into their lives that are mainly just like everyone else’s.

The seriously refreshing honesty from the British royal comes just after the release of Prince William and Lady Gaga’s inspiring FaceTime convo about mental health.

Speaking of the mental health discussion, Prince William commented, ‘We’ve taken the lid off a boiling pan. It’s been simmering for a very long time and everyone’s desperate for it to come out.’

Both the Duke and Duchess have also been incredibly supportive of brother Harry, who has also recently opened up about his emotional shutdown after the death of his mother.

As if we needed another reason to love the Royals…
