Kate Middleton admits concerning question Prince William asked her after George birth

Kate and William welcomed their first child to the world in 2013. The pair have gone onto have two other children, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. 

However, after the birth of their first child, William asked Kate one revealing question. 

In an interview with Giovanna Fletcher, on her podcast 'Happy Mum, Happy Baby', Kate admitted it took her and William some time to adjust to parenting. 

Kate said: "It wasn’t that quiet in our household.

"William was like ‘Oh my gosh is this what parenting is going to be like?’

"It took us a bit of time to get ourselves settled and going again but that’s the beauty, I suppose of having a new-born baby.

"You are pulled to your toughest and most unknown places that you hadn’t necessarily even thought about before."

Also within the interview, Kate praised her parents for her upbringing. 

She said: "I had a very happy childhood. It was great fun – I’m very lucky, I’ve come from a very strong family – my parents were hugely dedicated to us – my siblings.

"I really appreciate now as a parent how much they sacrificed for us.

"They would come to every sports match – I was very keen on sport – they came to every sports match, they’d be the ones on the side-line shouting, and we’d always have our family holidays together. 

"But I think the things that really resonate with me most are the simple things and actually I see that now with my own children, life now is so busy, so distracting and actually sometimes the simple things like watching a fire on a really rainy day provides such enjoyment.

"I remember that from my childhood – doing the simple things, going for a walk together, and that’s really what I try and do with my children as well because it totally strips away all the complications, all the pressures."

During the interview, Kate told the host that due to the illness it meant she was "not the happiest of pregnant people". 

She said: "I'm not going to say that William was standing there sort of, chanting sweet nothings at me.

"He definitely wasn't. I didn't even ask him about it, but it was just something I wanted to do for myself.

"I saw the power of it really, the meditation and the deep breathing and things like that, that they teach you in hypnobirthing when I was really sick, and actually I realised that this was something I could take control of, I suppose, during labour.

"It was hugely powerful."
