Kate Middleton has joked she would ‘like to ask the experts’ for advice on handling her children’s tantrums.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, also answered early years questions from members of the public.

While replying to the question ‘how do you handle temper tantrums in your family’ via video message, Duchess Kate said: ‘Indeed, that’s a hard one’, before bursting into laughter and saying ‘I’d also prefer to ask the experts myself’.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, are parents to three children; son Prince George, 7, daughter Princess Charlotte, 5, and son Prince Louis, 2. The children are third, fourth and fifth in line to the throne, respectively.

The Early Years project administered the largest ever UK study on early childhood. The research published what the country thinks about the early years, and also examines how COVID-19 has reshaped the understandings and experiences of parents and carers of the under-fives.

The Duchess praised and thanked a ‘large number’ of her social media supporters who sent in questions ‘with incredible emojis attached to them’. Duchess Kate further revealed that her interest in early years is driven by ambitions for ‘the society we could and can become’.

When inquired what actually got her interest in the project, Kate Middleton politely responded, “I think people believe that because I am a parent, that’s why I’ve taken an interest in the Early Years. I think this really is bigger than that.”

“This isn’t merely about happy, healthy children. Rather this is about the society I hope we could and can become. Right from the initial days, meeting lots of people who are suffering from addiction or bad mental health and hearing time and time again that their concerns now in adulthood stem right back from early childhood experience,” she added.

For the last nine years, Kate Middleton has spent time looking into how early childhood experiences can cause social challenges to arise later in life, such as addiction, family breakdown, poor mental health, suicide and homelessness.
