The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed that she felt "isolated" after the birth of her first child, Prince George, since her husband Prince William was working night shifts as an RAF pilot. 

Kate Middleton got candid about her experience being a first-time mother living in Anglesey with a "tiny, tiny baby" while visiting a children's center in Cardiff on Wednesday, January 22.

After arriving at the center, Kate shared, "it was nice to be back in Wales" before adding "I will have to remember my Welsh!" The children's center is located in an economically deprived area of the city and provides a welcoming environment for parents and children.

"If only I had had a center like this. It was the first year and I'd just had George – William was still working with Search and Rescue and we came up here and I had a tiny tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey it was so isolated, so cut off," Kate shared, according to a Mirror report.

"I didn't have any family around and he was doing night shifts," she continued. During the visit, Kate also spoke about Charlotte and Louis and said, "We will be taking a trip down to Anglesey at some point."

The Duchess of Cambridge also spoke to several parents about the center as well as the facilities that it offers to locals.

While speaking to a mother, Rhi, who uses the center, Kate shared, "So many families now are so spread out. It's much harder to rely on other generations for support."

Rhi then told her, "You can come here and tell people, 'I haven't slept'," to which Kate replied, "And everyone else is like, 'I haven't either!' It normalizes it. No one is going to judge you for it. And it's a social thing for you."

Rhi shared about Kate's visit, "It's lovely to see her in a place like Ely. It's such a deprived area and there have been so many funding cuts. Sometimes you are scared to walk the streets, but coming here you feel safe. You don't feel like you are going to get mugged."
