Kate Middleton Talks about Experiencing Mom Guilt When She Has to Leave Her Kids to Carry out Official Royal Duties
Kate Middleton recently sat down for a rare interview that saw her opening up on her "mom guilt."
It is no longer news that Kate Middleton has had her hands full with the duties that come with being the Duchess of Cambridge and a mother of three.
What many might not know is that the 38-year-old has expressed the occasional bout of “mom guilt.”
"...Kate would not only love her children to remember the moments they enjoyed with her as a mother but also think of the family's trips to the beach."
The mother-of-three, who shares her three kids — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — with her husband Prince William stated that:
"It's a constant challenge — you hear it time and time again from moms, even moms who aren't necessarily working and aren't pulled in the directions of having to juggle work life and family life."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis join The Queen and Members of @TheRoyalFamily to watch the @RoyalAirForceUK @RAFRedArrows fly past over Buckingham Palace, following Trooping the Colour, The Queen’s Birthday Parade. Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday.📷PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #BuckinghamPalace #QBP2019
Even though Kate and her 38-year-old husband often found themselves at numerous events, they have taken to allowing their children to tag along, all in a bid to bond as a family.
The Duchess even has high hopes about how the time the family shared would affect how they reflected on their childhoods.
According to People, Kate would not only love her children to remember the moments they enjoyed with her as a mother but also think of the family's trips to the beach.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photograph of their family. The photograph, taken by Matt Porteous, shows The Duke and Duchess with their three children at Anmer Hall. This photograph features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.
The mother-of-three also recalled the time that her family had spent time getting soaking wet and filling their boots full of water.
The Duchess chose those moments because it removed the idea of a stressful household where people tried to do everything without really succeeding at a specific one.
Additionally, her hopes for her children might have something to do with the childhood she enjoyed with her siblings – Pippa and James.
With that in mind, E! Online reported that Kate and William plan to take a break from their royal duties from Feb. 17 to Feb. 21 as it would be George and Charlotte's half-term break from school.
As the site stated, the royal couple has become known for reducing their workload for half-term every year to spend some quality time with their children.
Although the pair is yet to share where they would be spending their break, the time-off couldn't come at a better time.
