The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre in Wales on Wednesday where she opened up about both her experience as a first-time mother with Prince George and living on the Welsh island of Anglesey when Prince William was stationed there. “It’s nice to be back in Wales,” Middleton said. “I was chatting to some of the mums. It was the first year and I’d just had George — William was still working with search and rescue — and we came up here and I had a tiny, tiny baby in the middle of Anglesey. It was so isolated, so cut off. I didn’t have any family around, and he was doing night shifts. So … if only I had had a center like this.” Chris Jackson/Getty Images Kate Middleton Opted for Head-to-Toe Glam at Her Latest Royal Appearance Middleton arrived at the center in a double-breasted camel coat that she layered on top of a black turtleneck, a pleated midi leopard-print skirt, and suede boots.
