She makes it look so easy

Middleton gave birth to her third child in April 2018, and when she finally debuted Prince Louis Arthur Charles on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital, she looked flawless.

Her impeccable style triggered hilarious reactions online, and everyone wanted to know why she seemed to be coasting through motherhood without stress. But in 2017, Middleton has revealed that motherhood was a lonely experience for her:

Yes, it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated. But, so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through.

Kate admits she struggles

And during a visit to Lewisham, South London, Middleton met with volunteers of Family Action to commission FamilyLine, a new helpline to support parents and carers. There, she got even more real about her struggles with being a mom of three.

She said:

It's so hard. You get a lot of support with the baby as a mother particularly in the early days but after the age of one, it falls away. After that there isn't a huge amount...Everybody experiences the same struggle.

But it's not all been difficult moments for Kate Middleton.

She enjoys being a mom and has admitted that her favorite part of parenting is getting to spend time playing with her kids outside. Awww.
