The duchess first participated in a session where the parents were asked to write down a word that described parenting amid the quarantine and wrote, "exhausting." Other parents wrote down "challenging," "hectic," and "patience."
The Duke of Cambridge revealed that he and Kate speak to their children about the NHS's excellent work.
When asked to explain the reason behind her choice of words, Kate spoke about how parents have had to juggle much more alongside the array of day-to-day parenting duties. She then told of her experience, saying:
"I've become a hairdresser this lockdown, much to my children's horror, seeing mum cutting hair."
The duchess confessed that she usually feels pulled in different directions, draining her by the end of the day. The other parents echoed similar sentiments, sharing their experiences and how they find it hard to complete things on their to-do-list.
According to reports, the guardians' discussion was based on the critical parental issues raised during Kate's landmark survey on the Early Years. Earlier this month, Prince William had a similar conversation.
During a video call with the London hospital staff, the Duke of Cambridge revealed that he and Kate speak to their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, about the NHS's excellent work.
His discussion with the staff was in response to the increased cases of the novel Coronavirus in England, which resulted in hospitals handling more than 7,000 patients and an announcement by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
Khan announced new restriction protocols and instructed all primary schools in the city to lockdown. According to reports, the Cambridge kids followed the rule with their private school also shutting down.
Prince George, 7, and Prince Charlotte, 5, both attend Thomas's Battersea, located miles from Kensington Palace, where the Cambridges live. George began attending the expensive private school in 2017, while Charlotte joined in 2019.
