Kate Middleton tells charity being a mother is hard work

"She may have slightly different circumstances but we all have the same struggles and challenges".

Helping Family Action open a new, confidential helpline service for struggling families, Kate met with the charity's organisers and volunteers and talked about ways to get families the help they need.

While the green version of the dress is exclusive for the Duchess of Cambridge, you can get your hands on a pretty pink version, or the elegant navy version below. "It is full of complex emotions of joy, exhaustion, love, and worry, all mixed together", she said during the launch of the Best Beginnings program.


She said: "It makes her human. After that, there isn't a huge amount ... of books to read".

While she does have the family's nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, who has been compared to a modern-day Mary Poppins and lives at Kensington Palace, Kate adds: "Everybody experiences the same struggle". Borrallo is the family's only live-in childcare and comes with an impressive set of skills she learned while completing her childcare training at Norland College in the United Kingdom, including Taekwondo, anti-terrorism, driving in extreme weather, and avoiding paparazzi.

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.

The mother of three started off by admitting that it is hard to be a mother.

In 2010, the pair travelled to India, where they spent time working in the slums of Delhi, in an aftercare home for women who had been trafficked into the sex trade. If it's tough for the Duchess, the rest of us must be wonderful for keeping our heads above water, right?
