Duchess of Cambridge arrives to visit Family Action in Lewisham

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, wore a green midi dress teamed with matching clutch and heels for a royal visit to the charity Family Action. Speaking at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists a year ago, she said: "Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience".

Kate Middleton might be the mom of actual princes and a princess, but she's still a parent with numerous same stresses and concerns as others.

"Everybody experiences the same struggle".

She said: "It makes her human".




Kate Middleton can relate to mothers everywhere. These people have access to hired help and resources that a lot of us "regular folks" don't, so it's nice to know that they, too, struggle with the demands of looking after children, making the rest of us feel like we're actually doing pretty-sorta-mostly-okay. "After that, there isn't a huge amount - lots of books to read".

The duchess has three children under the age of six - Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, who is nine months old on Wednesday. "They haven't lost sight of that", a source told Us Weekly in 2018.

Family Action, which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2019, works to tackle some of the most complex and hard issues facing families today through their helpline service "FamilyLine".

"Even for me, who has more support at home that most mothers do not". The service, run by trained volunteers, provides a telephone line, email and text service for anyone struggling with elements of family life, including parenting, mental health and relationship difficulties.
