The Duchess of Cambridge speaks candidly about motherhood in an unprecedented interview on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby as her first-ever podcast appearance, who details her own upbringing and life as a mother to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Princess Louis.
Kate Middleton partnered with Happy Mum, Happy Baby host Giovanna Fletcher to promote her latest initiative focused on early childhood development.
The Bridging Initiative Dedicated To Generations
Last month, she launched the “Five Big Questions” survey, which asks the U.K.’s citizens to generate conversation about the importance and long-term impact of a person’s earliest years.
When asked to share which aspects from her own childhood she hopes to pass on to her own children, Kate says, “One is quality of relationships. So, those moments that you spend with people that are around you. I remember that from my own childhood. I had an amazing Granny who devoted a lot of time to us, playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going to the greenhouse to do gardening, and cooking with us, and I try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that I give my children now.”
The royal continues, “There are also the environments you spend time in as well: a happy home, a safe environment. As children, we spent a lot of time outside and it’s something I’m really passionate about. I think it’s so great for physical and mental wellbeing and laying [developmental] foundations. It’s such a great environment to spend time in, building those quality relationships without the distractions of ‘I’ve got to cook’ and ‘I’ve got to do this’. And actually, it’s so simple.”
Initiating The “Generational Change”
The study terminating eight years of research by Kate on the topic aims to create “generational change” for families that she described, “It’s going to take a long time—I’m talking about a generational change—but hopefully this is the first small step: to start a conversation around the importance of Early Childhood Development. It’s not just about happy, healthy children. This is for lifelong consequences and outcomes.”
