“George and Charlotte were like ‘Mummy how could you possibly not be dropping us off at school this morning?'” she said on Giovanna Fletcher’s podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby in 2020.

Going on to open up about feeling “mum guilt,” Kate said that it sometimes leads to her doubting her own decision-making.

She said: “It’s a constant challenge – you hear it time after time from mums, even mums who aren’t necessarily working and aren’t pulled in the directions of having to juggle work life and family life.

“[You’re] always sort of questioning your own decisions and your own judgements and things like that, and I think that starts from the moment you have a baby.”

Explaining how she deals with the guilt, she added: “The more people you have around your children who are safe and loving and caring, the better.”

She continued: “So yeah – it was a real weight off my shoulders that actually it’s not totally my responsibility to do everything. We all have good days and bad days. You can dilute that with others who aren’t on that particular day struggling.

“I think it makes such a difference for your child, keeping them as constant and happy as possible.”

Meanwhile, Supernanny star Jo Frost recently praised Kate and William’s parenting skills.

Her kind words came after clips of Louis being mischievous at the Platinum Jubilee ended up going viral on social media around the world.
