Duchess Catherine was in Cardiff, Wales on Wednesday January 22 where she got to speak to some parents, toddlers and babies at the innovative Ely and Careau Children’s Centre. Kate revealed some feelings she experienced while her first born son was a baby...
Duchess Catherine felt isolated
"It’s nice to be back in Wales. I was chatting to some of the mums. It was the first year and I’d just had George — William was still working with search and rescue — and we came up here and 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 was doing night shifts. So…if only I had had a center like this," according to People.

Duchess Catherine also told them that she sees the incredible and impactful work they are doing for children, noting it has a "massive social and economic" impact. Kate has always been a strong advocate for children's mental and physical health being the patron of many different child-oriented organizations.
