Kate Reveals Life As a Kid with granny as she gives her first podcast interview with Giovanna Fletcher


Kate Middleton shares her motherhood experience on an episode of Happy Mim, Happy Baby podcast, hosted by Giovanna Fletcher. 

In the Happy Mum, Happy Baby Podcast, Giovanna Fletcher leads conversations about motherhood in series of frank and warm conversations on all aspects of parenthood with other high-profile mums and dads- the highs, the lows, the challenges and rewards.

There is no such thing as the perfect parent, and we’re all simply doing our best, something Giovanna fully encourages. It’s time to stop comparing ourselves and champion each other instead. 

Her current episode featured the Duchess of Cambridge, mother to Prince George, six, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis. Kate talked about her passion for the early years, he aims for her online survey ‘5 Big Questions on the Under Fives’ and bringing up her three children. 

While speaking on her early childhood days the Duchess said:

“If I take the experience from my own childhood, coupled with what I know now and what I’ve learnt from the experts in the Early Years sector, I think there’s a few things that really stand out for me. One is the quality of relationships. So, those moments that you spend with people that are around you. I remember that from my own childhood. I had an amazing Granny who devoted a lot of time to us, playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going to the greenhouse to do gardening, and cooking with us, and I try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that I give my children now. There are also the environments you spend time in as well: a happy home, a safe environment. As children, we spent a lot of time outside and it’s something I’m really passionate about. I think it’s so great for physical and mental wellbeing and laying [developmental] foundations. It’s such a great environment to spend time in, building those quality relationships without the distractions of ‘I’ve got to cook’ and ‘I’ve got to do this.’ And actually, it’s so simple.”

Speaking about the survey, visits and the podcast, Giovanna said:

“It doesn’t matter who you are, what you have, or where you come from – we’re all trying to do our best with our children while continuously doubting our decisions and wondering if we’re getting it completely wrong. Talking helps unite us all. Having been with the Duchess of Cambridge on a couple of engagements to celebrate the launch of the 5 Big Questions survey, it was clear how passionate she is about the Early Years. It was then beyond wonderful to sit and talk further about the survey, her work – for which she has so much knowledge, and her own experiences of being a mother. This is a very special episode of the podcast and I’m very excited for people to hear it.”

Kate and author Giovanna first met in Birmingham in January, as the Duchess launched her online survey to spark a nation-wide conversation on raising the next generation.
