Speaking about the experience while visiting the Ely and Caerau Children's Centre in Cardiff this week, Kate recalled how she had no family around her as her husband, Prince William, was on night shifts as a Search and Rescue helicopter pilot with the RAF.

As reported by Hello! magazine, she said at the event: "It's nice to be back in Wales! I was chatting to some of the mums earlier. It was the first year and I'd just had George.

So isolated, so cut off.

"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. I didn’t have any family around and he was doing night shifts.

"If only I had had a centre like this."

After George, the Cambridges went on to have daughter Charlotte in 2015 and welcomed their youngest son, Louis, in 2018.

William said, as reported by the Mirror: "The African continent holds a very special place in my heart. It is the place my father took my brother and me shortly after our mother died. And when deciding where best to propose to Catherine, I could think of no more fitting place than Kenya to get down on one knee."
