Kate reveals how fatherhood was hard for William
THE Duchess of Cambridge has told a single father how her husband initially found it difficult adjusting to parenthood.
Kate met father Billy, 39, during a visit to a care centre for expectant and new parents, after her own pregnancy led to a previous trip being delayed.
Billy is raising his seven-month-old daughter Violet alone after taking custody from her mother and spoke about his experiences at Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in north London.
The Duchess, who is currently pregnant with her third child, described how William had felt he did not know what exactly 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 mental health support for parents.
Speaking after the meeting, Billy said: “She was saying William was sort of similar and I just wanted to let her know how Family Action have been there for me and I think they need more support.”
