The Duchess was taking part in a group discussion with parents of pupils at Roe Green Junior School in Brent via video call. Kate and her fellow panelists talked about their lockdown experiences and the challenges faced while looking after their families. At one point they were all asked to write down the name of the person who had been their biggest support during the lockdowns.
The Duchess, without hesitation, scribbled down the name of her husband, Prince William, showing the strong bond of affection between them.
The video call featured revealing insights into the challenges faced by the parents, as they struggled to juggle many different roles.
The Duchess admitted that the lockdowns had left her feeling exhausted and disorientated.
She confessed:”I personally feel pulled in so many different directions.”

In a lighthearted moment she laughed as she recalled her children’s “horror” when she had to cut their hair.
She said: “So I have become a hairdresser this lockdown, much to my children’s horror, seeing mum cut hair!”
