Kate leads the way - a practical not perfect approach to Motherhood

It is reassuring for new mothers to see how refreshingly down to earth Kate is when it comes to babies, motherhood and her royal lifestyle.

I must admit I too was a gasp when I came across a picture of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the Queens Garden Party in the same cream (Alexander McQueen) suit she wore for Prince George’s Christening. Fashion lovers and royal fans hang out for her appearance at royal events seeking so much pleasure in her parade.

But why wouldn’t she recycle it, shouldn’t we praise her for this? It’s a perfectly suitable choice for a garden party. There is this expectation she will always be in something new, what with designers throwing their wares at her, so it takes a very level headed sensible person to resist. I love that Kate brings normality to a not so normal situation. 

There was the time she had the family portrait taken and Charlotte had one shoe on the ground. The photographer claimed it was a very normal family portrait, "frenetic and rushed"!  Then the photos published recently of Princess Charlotte turning one weren't taken by a famous photographer at all, rather they were taken by Kate herself, the mother! She also sent out a very sweet yet uncomplicated thank you card to everyone who sent her a present. Well how normal is that! 

The first ever Little Kisses hamper delivery was sent to the Duke and Duchess prior to the birth of Prince George. At this stage no one knew if it was going to be a boy or a girl so the gift giver sent them a beautiful mix of both. I remember the pink and blue check Branberrry blankets going into the box along with the cream Flatout bear, so we were pleased to hear a girl followed so she could make use of both. Knowing how sensible Kate is, it wouldn't surprise me if these gifts were put to good use!
