Recently, the Princess met with experts in the early years’ sector to advise the 41-year-old on the work of her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, and the royal revealed a special conversation she had with her kids.
The royal compared feeling anxious to feeling excited, explaining that these emotions get mixed up sometimes. That seems to be great advice for little ones when they get butterflies in their tummies, simply to remember that it’s excitement instead of nerves.
The Waleses have long been supporting the mental health debate, and before Prince Louis was born Princess Kate even said that they would be on board with Prince George and Princess Charlotte having therapy one day if they ever needed it.
In a social media post, the royal mother wrote: “One in three adults still say they would be embarrassed to seek help for their child’s mental health. No parent would fail to call the doctor if their child developed a fever, yet some children are tackling tough times without the support that can help them because the adults in their life are scared to ask. It doesn’t need to be like this.”
She went on to say: “William and I feel very strongly that we wouldn’t hesitate to get expert support for George and Charlotte if they need it.”
