Kate Middleton is allegedly on a mommy forum anonymously. Sources say she's logged on to online sites to share parenting stories or seek child care tips using an alias.

A source told Reveal Magazine that the Duchess of Cambridge is on the popular Mumsnet forum for U.K. parents, 9Honey reported. The source also said she's chatting up moms in the Babycentre community and sometimes sought guidance on parenting.

"Using these websites has really helped Kate," the source revealed. "Although she'd never admit to using the web for advice - the Royal Family tend to 'just get on with it' when it comes to raising children," the source said, adding the Duchess usually posted questions she and husband Prince William disagreed with when it came to parenting.

Mumsnet regulars, meanwhile, do not doubt Middleton could be among them and posting her parenting stories. Curiously, Mumsnet has a section where community members talk about the Royal Family. Some wonder if Middleton wanders in those discussions or shares her thoughts as well.

Mumsnet founder Justine Roberts recently received a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) honor from the Queen through Prince William. Roberts joked the Duchess must be a regular on her mommy forum. Prince William apparently told her, "She may well be," according to Mirror.

England's future queen, by virtue of her marriage to the second-in-line to the throne, once expressed that parenting is difficult. Even for someone with a number of people working for her, the Duchess admitted she has parenting struggles like everyone else, as per Vogue. The Duchess acknowledged no one can be prepared for the challenges of parenting and suggested to other moms like her to seek help when they feel overwhelmed.

Her husband, on the other hand, was never remiss in complimenting his wife's skills as a mom. "I'm very lucky in the support I have from Catherine," Prince William said in 2016, ABC News reported. "She is an amazing mother and a fantastic wife."
