Duchess of Cambridge opens up on the 'huge challenges' of being a mother

By Tony Jones

The Duchess of Cambridge has made a frank and personal admission about her life as a mother, describing it as "huge challenge" at times that has left her feeling a "lack of confidence" for periods.

Kate's openness about her maternal struggles despite - as she conceded - having help from a nanny came as she attended the launch of a series of films aimed at helping new parents cope with depression and other mental health issues.

Before speaking at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in central London, the Duchess said: "Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience.

"However, at times it has also been a huge challenge, even for me who has support at home that most mothers do not. Nothing can really prepare you for the sheer overwhelming experience of what it means to become a mother."
