Kate also revealed her favorite part of being a parent
After revealing that her 10-month-old son has mastered crawling, the royal mom shared during Tuesday’s visit to the Henry Fawcett Children’s Centre that Louis has developed another mode of transportation.
“Louis just wants to pull himself up all the time,” Kate told fellow parents. “He has got these little walkers and is bombing around in them.”
A mom named Kriti, who was at the center with her 9-month-old son Kameron, swapped stories with the royal about their little ones. Kriti told reporters, “She took one look at Kameron and said, ‘Oh, he wants to go walkies.’ Apparently her son is cruising, and she said she was running after him all the time.”
Louis’ big sister Princess Charlotte, 3, was also a fan of walkers as she learned to find her footing. In fact, one was featured in a portrait of the little royal (taken by Kate!) released in honor of her first birthday in 2016.
During Tuesday’s visit, Kate also met two sets of twins: Kamina and Kashay, 23 months and Noah and Charlie, 17 months.
She asked the girls’ mother, Finesse, about her experience of having twins. “I told her, ‘double the trouble’ and she laughed,” the mom shared.
Finesse, 31, who has a 12-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son in addition to her young twins, said Kate was interested in finding out how the center had helped her.
“I told her that I felt very isolated, and how much it had supported me,” she explained. “It enabled me to meet other mums and twins, which has been incredibly helpful. In fact, I feel like I have got triplets given that I have a two-year-old as well. They are really little divas in the making!”
Kate chatted with the mothers about their favorite parts of parenting, and she also played with the children.
“She was just lovely, really down to earth. I never thought she would come down and sit with us, but she did,” Finesse said. “She just wanted to chat about what it was like to be a mum. She said that we all had our ups and downs as parents, regardless of who we are.”
