Kate Middleton shares rare private details in open letter about motherhood

The things Kate enjoys most are much simpler than one might expect of a royal mother.

ICYMI, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, welcomed her third child—a boy named Prince Louis—in April, and this week the royal shared that what loves most about being a mum are the simple pleasures.

In an open letter in honour of Children's Hospice Week—the Duchess is a patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices—the 36-year-old wrote about what she called the "remarkable and life-changing support" organisations she helps to support give "children and families facing the unimaginable".

"The theme of Children's Hospice Week is 'Life's Short' and I am touched that children and young people are sharing what they love most in life and reminding us how precious time is for everyone," she wrote in a letter. "By supporting Children's Hospice Week we can help them spread joy and positivity across the U.K., encouraging everyone to make the most of moments that matter."

Kate not only praised the professionals offering palliative care, but also offered a moment of introspection and told of her own experience as a mother to Prince George, 4, Princess Charlotte, 3, and one-month-old Louis.

"Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish," she wrote. "I hope you will join me in supporting Children's Hospice Week this year. Together we can champion the vital role that children's hospices play in helping seriously ill children and families to have more precious moments."

One moment with her kids Kate is likely to treasure forever is seeing George and Charlotte play a part in their uncle, Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle at the weekend (May 19, 2018).

The bride and groom had 10 children they were close to play the roles of bridesmaids and page boys and Kate—just weeks after giving birth and dressed in a stunning yellow coatdress by Alexander McQueen—was seen helping wrangle her kids whilst husband William was Harry's best man.

Ah, the memories.

Anyone else facing a hardcore #royalwedding comedown? Just us? M'kay ¯_(ツ)_/¯.
