Kate Middleton Gets Candid On Being A Mom, Says 'Parenting Is Tough'
Kate Middleton expressed her understanding about the difficulties of child-rearing with fellow mothers as she paid a visit to the Anna Freud Center for Children and Families Wednesday. For the Duchess of Cambridge, raising kids is always challenging even though there are royal nannies and blue-blooded godparents who support them.
"Parenting is tough," Duchess Kate said, as reported by Telegraph. She was greeted by a chorus of moms who were shaking their heads while murmuring "preach."
The Duchess' husband, Prince William, would always boast about how fantastic Kate is as a mother and wife. He also shared that parenting is such a tough job but it can be a joy if both parents play the role wholeheartedly, the father-of-two said during his interview with E! News two months ago.
The 34-year-old Duchess, who is a mom-of-two, spoke with women enrolled in the center's early years parenting unit. These listeners have battled problems like depression or difficult upbringings in the past. The royal mom offered words of encouragement as she shared her experiences in doing the extraordinary tasks of being a parent.
"I find it extraordinary how you've managed actually, so really well done," Middleton told the parenting unit, as per USA Today. Even though Duchess Kate seemed to have the most expensive facilities and strategies to use as a parent, child-rearing is still not an easy job.
The speaking engagement is Kate Middleton's first sighting after she celebrated her 35th birthday earlier in the week. Prior to her visit, she had a church trip with Queen Elizabeth II, who was reportedly recovering from a severe cold, on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Duchess Kate was an epitome of royal beauty when she wore a bright blue coat by British brand Eponine, the vintage-inspired line features '50s silhouettes and cuts. Kate's dress design has turned to be a new favorite among the royal ladies.
In her previous engagement, Duchess Kate wore a red skirt suit from the designer. Such brand was also modeled by Princess Eugenie at the Queen's 90th birthday celebration, where she wore a red dress with cut-out detail along the neckline.
