Kate Middleton Says Motherhood Can Be “Isolating”

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has revealed her struggles with becoming a mother, saying it is "lonely" and feels "isolated" at times.

During a meeting at the Global Academy on Thursday, Middleton confessed that motherhood has, at times, left her feeling lonesome. “It is lonely at times and you do feel quite isolated, but actually so many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through,” Duchess Kate told the founders of Mush, an app that connects mothers in the hopes of forming support networks. "It is being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out to those around you."

Her comments comes days after Prince Harry revealed for the first time that he sought counselling at the age of 28 after enduring "two years of total chaos” and having spent nearly 20 years of “not thinking” about the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
