The dressed down duchess looked radiant as she discussed parent-to-parent support initiatives and how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting families.

There are thousands of parents across the UK who offer their experience and knowledge to help other families through such programmes. The duchess spoke with representatives and volunteers from various organisations running the initiatives to hear about their services.

Mothers who spoke with Catherine said the duchess discussed how she fared during lockdown. According to mother Morgan Alex, Catherine was grateful for the “extra time” she was able to spend with her family.

“It sounded like she really appreciated lockdown for the extra time she’s been able to spend with her family and seeing the positives in that,” she said.
