The royal beauty opened up about being a mom during an interview with the BBC recently. She showed support for a BBC Education initiative called Tiny Happy People, YOU reported.
The initiative aims to help new parents and caregivers of children by providing resources and support.
Kate said during the interview that she wished such a programme existed when she had her first child, Prince George.
The Duchess said the support during the first five years is particularly valuable. She was quoted saying:
"It’s gold dust, really, for families to be given those tips and tools to be able to use, particularly in those first five years."
“In the first few months there’s a huge amount of support from the midwives and health visitors, but from then onwards, there’s a massive gap before they then start school.”
For the past several years, Kate has been really involved with programmes that aid early development in children.
“Families and carers are at the heart of nurturing the next generation of happy, healthy adults, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to turn to for advice."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have celebrated their son's first birthday.
The couple are reportedly delighted over Archie's first words, which include "mama", "dada", "book" and "dog”. A source close to the family has revealed young Archie's development.
“He loves playing hide-and-seek and using building blocks,” the source added.
