The Duchess of Cambridge has reflected on her own struggles as a mum on a visit to a new helpline centre for parents in London, this as she wears a dress in support of a charity that helps fight sex trafficking.

On Tuesday, Duchess Kate paid a visit to the charity Family Action in Lewisham, south London. The organisation supports families who experiencing poverty, disadvantage, or social isolation across the U.K., according to its official website. Part of the duchess’ visit today is to celebrate the launch of its new service, FamilyLine, a free support line for parents and families.

The Duchess may have a live-in-nanny and housekeeper available to help with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and eight-month-old Prince Louis but the royal mum, suggested there were times when even she felt a sense of isolation.

“It’s so hard. You get a lot of support with the baby as a mother particularly in the early days but after the age of one it falls away,” she said during her visit.

“Everybody experiences the same struggle,” she added.

Dress with a message

In addition to showing support for families in the U.K., the Duchess also showed her support for victims of human trafficking – by wearing a simple dress – with an important message.

The belted green dress that the royal mum of three chose has a story of its own. Beulah, the brand behind the structured long-sleeve dress featuring button details down the skirt, is taking steps to end modern day slavery.

Founders Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinia Brennan traveled to Delhi, India, in 2010 for a volunteer mission where they encountered victims of human trafficking in a government-run safehouse.

The inspiring brand donates a percentage of their profits to supporting women who have been victims of sex trafficking.

Meanwhile, the Duchesses husband Prince William is in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. He will take part in a conversation with English broadcaster and natural historian Sir David Attenborough on Tuesday before joining a group of panelists, including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, for a discussion on mental health on Wednesday.
