LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s duchess Kate, the wife of Prince William, discussed the importance of the early years of childhood during her first podcast interview released on Saturday, praising the experiences she shared with her grandmother.
Kate, officially known as the Duchess of Cambridge, told the “Happy Mum, Happy Baby” podcast that she has tried to replicate those times with her own three children.
“If I take the experience from my own childhood coupled with what I know now and what I’ve learnt from the experts in the early years sector, I think there’s a few things that really stand out for me,” she said.
“I had an amazing granny who devoted a lot of time for us, playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going into her greenhouse and doing gardening stuff and cooking with us and I try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that I give my children now.”
