Kate Middleton is a total mom when she talks about dropping Prince George off at nursery school

Any mother will tell you that dropping off their child on the first day of school stirs up a storm of emotion. Even the Duchess of Cambridge had a hard time seeing her son off to nursery school. Kate Middleton admitted that she’s still getting used to dropping Prince George off at school and mom, we feel you.

Due to her suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum, severe morning sickness caused by her current pregnancy, Middleton was unable to attend Prince George’s first day of school drop-off with her husband, Prince William. But thankfully, Middleton is overcoming her sickness and is now able to partake in the daily routine.

During her speech at the Place2Be School Leaders Forum, Middleton stated, "As a mother just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child."

According to E! News, the Duchess attended the forum in order to talk about how schools can get more involved with mental health initiatives — which is something Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry are all advocates for via their Heads Together campaign.

"Whether we are school leaders, teachers, support staff or parents — we are all in this together," Middleton continued. "We are all working to give children the emotional strength they need to face their future lives and thrive."

Prince George started full-time nursery school at Thomas’s Battersea in September. Dad, Prince William, escorted the little prince to the front gates and the first day of school photos were so cute that we actually couldn’t get over them.


Just look at how unsure he is! We hope his concerns have faded since the first day.


We’re so glad Middleton is feeling well enough to take her little boy to school, even though seeing him off is never easy!
