Struggles As A Mom: Kate Middleton Felt 'Isolated' After Having George, But 5 Tips Can Help Cope With This Feeling

Date January 23, 2020

Kate Middleton kicked off her new project, 5 Big Questions, aimed at providing assistance, support, and development improvement to children under five.

She has already visited Birmingham and Cardiff to raise awareness about her nation-wide survey and ask people for help in her surprising project. Kate Middleton hasn't been so honest about her mental health for a long time as yesterday.

Kate Middleton's news

During a candid conversation at baby sensory class at the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre, the mother-of-three admitted she had suffered from loneliness and isolation after giving birth to Prince George.

Prince William was an RAF Search and Rescue helicopter pilot at the time, and Duchess Catherine was "cut off" from everyone with a "tiny baby" in the house.

I had a tiny, tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey. It was so isolated, so cut off. I didn’t have any family around, and he [William] was doing night shifts.

Previously, Prince William's wife also opened up about feelings of loneliness as a mother. Back in 2017, she said that "it is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated" after having kids.

In another interview, Kate Middleton conceded that all females had the same struggles with being left alone and raising up a child. Such feelings are not foreign to her whatsoever.

On a positive note, Duchess Catherine honored her kids, George, Charlotte, and Louis, at the Cardiff visit. The elated mother was pictured wearing a $1,405 Daniela Draper necklace with initials 'G, C, L', which is believed to be a tribute to the royal children.

Prince William on parenting

George, Charlotte, and Louis are brought up decently thanks to Princess Diana. Apart from Kate and William's own down-to-earth and modest personalities, the heir claims his late mother influences the upbringing.

I want to bring up my children in a happy, stable, secure world, and that is so important to both of us as parents. I want George to grow up in a real, living environment; I don't want him growing up behind palace walls, he has to be out there. The media make it harder, but I will fight for them to have a normal life.

How to cope with loneliness

According to VeryWell Mind and Psychology Today, here are the top five advise:

  1. Strengthen existing relationships with people.
  2. Join a group support, a class, or become a volunteer.
  3. Get professional help.
  4. Adopt a pet.
  5. Discuss potential solutions with a partner.

Children always change their parents' life, and sometimes not in a positive way right away. Kate Middleton and Prince William occasionally speak about parenting tips, their own struggles, or some adorable moments from the family life. We do appreciate and respect their honesty and openness about such matters, as many people can relate to the same situations.
