In a surprise royal twist no one saw coming, the Duchess of Cambridge is now available to listen to on Spotify, iTunes and wherever you get your podcasts.

Over the weekend, Kate Middleton appeared as a guest on the British podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby, during which she was surprisingly candid about all things motherhood, opening up about her battle with Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a form of severe morning sickness, and “mummy guilt.”

“I got very bad morning sickness, so I’m not the happiest of pregnant people,” the mother-of-three explained of pregnancy. “Lots of people have it far, far worse, but it was definitely a challenge. Not just for me but also for your loved ones around you, and I think that’s the thing, being pregnant and having a newborn baby and things like that, impacts everybody in the family.”

The duchess then went on to explain how the Duke of Cambridge felt seeing her so sick.

“You know, William didn’t feel he could do much to help and it’s hard for everyone to see you suffering without actually being able to do anything about it,” she said. “I was really sick. I wasn’t eating the things I should be eating. But yet, the body was still able to take all the goodness from my body and to grow new life, which I think is fascinating.”

Throughout the interview, Kate also revealed she suffers from “mummy guilt,” saying that it is a constant challenge to find balance when it comes to her kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

“There’s such a pull, but I am such a hands-on mum, and whatever you’re doing you want to make sure you’re doing the uttermost best job you can for your children,” she said. Kate and William have a full-time nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, who has been with the family since 2014 when Prince George was just eight months old.
