Kensington Palace released a video of the Duchess of Cambridge in which she promotes her early childhood survey ‘5 Big Questions on the Under Fives’. The new footage is from while she was visiting Northern Ireland last week, and in it, she talks about why she has launched the project and reminds anyone that is interested that they can still take part in the survey, which will be open till 21 February.
The mum-of-three says: “Parents, carers and families are at the heart of raising the next generation and that’s why I felt so passionate about listening to them, and listening to your thoughts and your views and how best we can support you going forward. That’s why I’ve launched the 5 Big Questions to hear from as many people from society as possible. We visited Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England to hear your experiences. I’m really pleased that over 200,000 people have already filled in the survey, but it’s not too late to have your say…”
The survey was first revealed by the Duchess during a visit to Birmingham on 22 January. The goal of the survey is to spark a nationwide conversation on raising the next generation. Since then, the Duchess went on a kind of mini-tour to promote her project, paying visits to Cardiff, Woking, London, Newtownards and Aberdeen, meeting with families, children, charities and experts.

During the interview, the two women touched a wide range of subjects, such as raising three kids, the challenges of becoming a mother, and birth itself, with Kate putting the spotlight on hypnobirthing, a technique she used when giving birth to her three children. She also revealed that standing outside the Lindo Wing after the births of her children was “terrifying” and how she struggles with mum guilt at times, when balancing her home life with royal duties.
At the moment the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are believed to be spending some private family time with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as the eldest two are currently on their February half-term.
