Senior members of the royal family, Prince William and Kate Middleton are having a tough time during quarantine.
Kate Middleton gave a speech about emotional health in children. The virtual appearance at the Oak National Academy was aired yesterday.
The Duchess talked about importance of kindness. She opens up about the emotional struggle during quarantine.
Kate said that everybody has ups and downs. Especially when things change in our lives like they have recently. She continues that this can have a lot of different feelings. Kate explains that sometimes they are good feelings but other times they are not.
The Duchess continues not being able to meet your friends and family will bring out frustration for both you and your family. She explains that these feelings are normal and they won’t last forever.
Kate also urges to take care of ourselves by doing what makes us happy with taking care of others. She explains that doing so will help our mental health. The Duchess then showcases gratitude for inviting her and urges everybody to take care of their mental healths and reach out when necessary.
The Duchess tried to remind people that they are not alone even when it feels like they are.
Kate Middleton and her husband have encouraged the improvement of mental wellbeing across the UK several times. Even the royal couple is struggling, according to Kate.
Talking about their own life, Kate in an interview, spoke about her experience amid quarantine. She also talks about homeschooling her children. The royal couple have three children: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
“It’s been ups and downs,” the Duchess reveals. She continues saying it is like this for a lot of families. Further explaining she says George is much older than Louis and things, but they are aware of the situation of COVID-19. Kate admits that she is always surprised but she thinks it is appropriate to talk about it in age-appropriate ways.
She told BBC in an interview, adding that she imagines it’s that way for a lot of families. “George is much older than Louis is and things, but they are aware [that things are different because of COVID-19],” she said. “And I’m always surprised and although you don’t want to scare them and make it too overwhelming, I think it is appropriate to acknowledge it [the pandemic] in simple ways and age-appropriate ways.”
The royal couple are trying their best to stay connected to the community. During the month of May, the couple surprised an elderly care facility with a game of virtual bingo. They also took over a U.K. radio station for making public announcement about mental health.
Kate has recently launched a brand new community arts project which showcases the photographers around the country.
