Kate Middleton has revealed her secret struggle with raising three children.

The royal mother-of-three admitted during an official visit to Family Action charity’s FamilyLine service in London that she often feels ‘isolated’.

‘It’s so hard. You get a lot of support with the baby as a mother, particularly in the early days, but after the age of one it falls away,’ the Duchess of Sussex said.

‘After that there isn’t a huge amount — lots of books to read. Everybody experiences the same struggle.’

The Duchess, who is mother to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, one, had previously admitted motherhood is a ‘challenge’.

Despite having hired help such as nannies, chefs and maids, the royal mum, 37, claims she is not immune to the struggles of being a parent.

‘Even for me who has support at home that most mothers do not,’ Kate said in 2017.
