Kate Middleton was the guest on the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast that aired on Saturday and she shared details on how she hopes Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will look back on their childhood days.
Duchess Kate: "What would you want your children to remember about their childhood?"
"Someone did ask me the other day, what would you want your children to remember about their childhood?" the Duchess told host Giovanna Fletcher. "And I thought that was a really good question, because actually if you really think about that, is it that I’m sitting down trying to do their maths and spelling homework over the weekend?"
"Or is it the fact that we’ve gone out and lit a bonfire and sat around trying to cook sausages that hasn’t worked because it’s too wet? That’s what I would want them to remember, those moments with me as a mother, but also the family going to the beach, getting soaking wet, filling our boots full of water, those are what I would want them to remember. Not a stressful household where you’re trying to do everything and not really succeeding at one thing." she said.
"I had a very happy childhood"
Kate also touched on her happy memories as a child and how grateful she is for her parents being so dedicated to her happiness and well-being. "I had a very happy childhood. It was great fun – I’m very lucky, I’ve come from a very strong family. My parents were hugely dedicated to us – my siblings. I really appreciate now as a parent how much they sacrificed for us." she said.
