Kate Middleton is one of the most recognizable figures in the world; married to Britain’s future king and mother of another future king, Prince George, Kate’s life seems to be totally foreign. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
While Kate has always been admirable, she’s also always been somewhat of a mystery, but her royal of duties tend to reflect her heart’s desires. Kate has been an avid spokesperson mental illness and family life, and since becoming a mother, her appreciation to those matters has only increased.
When Kate delivered each of three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, the world got a peek into the most sacred part of her heart- the part where a mother’s love dwells.
Just days after Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, Kate penned a truly heartwarming letter to honor Children’s Hospice Week. PEOPLE claims that the week aims to “highlights the dedication, love and care provided by those caring for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the U.K.”
In the letter, Kate shared, “Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish.” Readers around the world have been shocked to learn that one of the most popular women in the world appreciates time with her children and husband above all else.
She went on to say that, “The theme of Children’s Hospice Week this year is ‘Life’s Short’ and I am touched that children and young people are sharing what they love most in life and reminding us of how precious time is for everyone.”
Kate’s reminder to the world to enjoy the precious time with loved ones is perhaps one of the most encouraging things we’ve learned about the Duchess. She prefers quality time with her husband and children away in Anmer Hall, a rural getaway location for the family in Norfolk.
Kate may be royalty, but she still keeps her family her first priority- something that we can all appreciate and learn from. Don’t you just adore her?
