The Duchess of Cambridge has followed in the footsteps of Prince Harry and made a heartfelt confession that motherhood has been "lonely" at times.
Kate, the mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, opened up during a visit to a west London high school, where she joined a discussion on the issue of mental health.
After two mothers, supporters of the Royal trio's Heads Together mental health campaign, discussed how they became friends after bonding through mutual loneliness, Kate replied: "Yes, 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.
"It is being brave enough, like you obviously were, to reach out to those around you."
Kate was chatting to Katie Massie-Taylor and Sarah Hesz, who have launched an app to help mothers of young children make friends with others in a similar situation.
