Kate Middleton reveals when she found parenting George and Charlotte the hardest

She may be royalty, but Kate Middleton can still relate to your parenting struggles.

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge made a visit to the charity Family Action and revealed that she also experiences motherhood woes, pinpointing the exact age of her first two children, Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, three, that she found most difficult as a parent.

"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," she said during her appearance, according to People. "After that there isn't a huge amount — lots of books to read."

While she does have the family's nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, who has been compared to a modern-day Mary Poppins and lives at Kensington Palace, Kate adds: "Everybody experiences the same struggle."

Back in 2017, it was reported by CALMzine, that Will and Kate are adopting an open and honest parenting style — a departure from the strict British stereotype – in hopes that it will make them stronger in the future.
