Duchess Kate describes being ‘isolated’ as a new mom to Prince George
Duchess Kate opened up about feeling “isolated” as a new mom to Prince George while talking Wednesday with parents at a children’s center in Wales.
“I was chatting to some of the mums, I had just had George and William was still working with search and rescue, so we came up here when George was a tiny, tiny little baby, in the middle of Anglesey,” Kate said. “It was so isolated, so cut off, I didn’t have my family around me, he was doing night shifts, so if only I’d had a center like this at a certain time.”
Kate made the remarks at the Ely and Caerau Children’s Center in Cardiff, Wales, which offers support services to parents as well as kids.
The duchess was a first-time mom to George in 2013 when she and William lived in Anglesey, where William worked as a search-and-rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force (RAF). Just over one year after George’s birth, William joined the East Anglian Air Ambulance as a pilot.
