Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY JACK HARDY

THE Duchess of Cam­bridge yes­ter­day re­vealed her husband ini­tially found it dif­fi­cult ad­just­ing to par­ent­hood.

Kate, who is preg­nant with her third child, told sin­gle dad Billy of Wil­liam’s prob­lems when they met at a care cen­tre for new par­ents.

Billy (39) is rais­ing his sev­en­month-old daugh­ter Vi­o­let alone af­ter tak­ing cus­tody from her mother. He spoke about his ex­pe­ri­ences at Hornsey Road Chil­dren’s Cen­tre in north London.

The Duchess de­scribed how Wil­liam had felt he did not know ex­actly what to do when he first be­came a fa­ther.

Fam­ily Ac­tion, a char­ity of which the Queen is pa­tron, is among the or­gan­i­sa­tions pro­vid­ing ser­vices at the care fa­cil­ity, in­clud­ing care and men­tal health sup­port for par­ents.

Kate has in the past de­scribed her life as mother to Prince Ge­orge and Princess Char­lotte as a “re­ward­ing and won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence”.
