On January 22, 2020 The Duchess of Cambridge visited Cardiff and Surrey to promote the launch of her’5 Big Questions’ online survey.
In her first stop The Duchess of Cambridge visited Ely and Careau Children’s Centre where she joined a baby sensory class to hear about the support that parents receive and she also talked to about the ‘5 Big Questions’ survey. During a conversation The Duchess opened up about feeling isolated in Anglesey after the birth of Prince George.
She said: “It’s nice to be back in Wales. 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. If only I had had a center like this.”
In Surrey, The Duchess of Cambridge returned to HMP Send Women’s Prison for the first time since 2015. There she met with some of the women she met in 2015, who have since been successfully rehabilitated, released and are rebuilding their families. The Duchess also talked to women who are currently at the prison receiving support from The Forward Trust, a charity which helps clients improve their relationships with friends and family.
