Kate Middleton Gets Candid about Motherhood in Her First-Ever Podcast Interview

The Duchess of Cambridge talks about motherhood and her upcoming projects in her first-ever podcast with Giovanna Fletcher on "Happy Mum, Happy Baby."

The journey of motherhood is not a walk in the park. One has to ensure that things are done right, and even at that, it takes the utmost hope and faith to believe that children will turn out to be better people.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, had an enlightening podcast session with Giovanna Fletcher, who runs a podcast called “Happy Mum, Happy Baby.”

The podcast was secretly recorded during Kate’s visit to Stockwell Garden Nursery and Pre-School in the latter part of January.

On the podcast, Kate opens up about motherhood, parenting, and her experiences growing up as a child, how it has shaped her idea of motherhood and the methods she uses in training her three children.

During the podcast, Kate spoke about how conversations needed to be had with families and caretakers of children to ensure that the right thing is being done when it comes to taking care of children. She said:

“You know parents and carers are right at the heart of that, and families are right at the heart of that, and although I’ve spoken to the scientists and the service providers, it’s so important to listen to families."

Kate further opened up about how she was raised by a loving grandmother who devoted quite a lot of time to them, and also helped them in their developmental stages.

The Duchess stated that her grandmother helped them by ensuring they were involved in arts, crafts, gardening among other things which were not necessarily part of school learning.

Kate, who is actively involved in the early developmental years of a child, has launched a survey known as the “5 Big Questions on the Under Fives.”

The mother of three acknowledged that she also tries to incorporate these things in training her children.

The 38-year-old further emphasized that children need a safe and secure environment to play as this is beneficial to their mental and physical well being. She said:

“This is the first small step: to start a conversation around the importance of early childhood development. It’s not just about happy, healthy children. This is for lifelong consequences and outcomes.”

Kate and William, parents to three amazing kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, have always been open about spending time with their family to ensure that their children grow up knowing love and family.
