Apart from students, the royal mum-of-two chatted with fellow mums, Katie Massie-Taylor and Sarah Hesz, who co-founded the app Mush, which connects new mothers with each other. The women admitted to the Duchess that they felt in need of a friend after having their children. "'It is lonely at times. You do feel quite isolated," Kate confessed.

It's been a busy week for Princess Charlotte's parents and uncle Harry. The royals have been busy promoting their mental health initiative ahead of the London Marathon on Sunday, which their campaign is the race's official charity partner. Earlier this week Prince Harry opened up about seeking help for his own issues following the death of his mother, Princess Diana, while William revealed that he and Kate want to raise their children to be able to express their emotions. “Catherine and I are clear that we want both George and Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings,” the Duke said in an interview with the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). "Emotional intelligence is key for us all to deal with the complexities of life and relationships."
