Last night Kensington Palace released a video of the Duchess of Cambridge speaking virtually with other parents about the struggles they've faced with the U.K.'s third COVID-19 lockdown.
Her Royal Highness was one of four parents who was asked a series of questions about their mental well-being, a conversation that stemmed from her national survey, Early Years. The results of the survey, which were released last November, revealed that parents aren't prioritizing their own mental health.
The questions in the video ranged from asking them to rank their math skills to who/what has been their biggest support.
Kate was relaxed and candid throughout the video conference, giving honest answers about the difficulty she's faced as a mother of three. For example, she admitted to being a lousy first-time hairdresser.
When asked to rank her math skills, I was more than relieved to discover that Kate is as confident in herself as I am when it comes to anything more than 2+2.
My favorite part of the video conference was when each parent was asked who or what has been their biggest support since lockdown. The palace had a bit of fun with the caption, a departure from what most expect of a royal account. Lady Whistledown will have something to say about this...
