Kate Middleton admits she felt “isolated” after giving birth to her first child, Prince George.

The 38-year-old royal made the remarks on Wednesday as she spoke to workers at a children's center in Cardiff, Wales.

The Duchess recalled living in Wales at the time of George’s birth with her husband, Prince William, who was still serving in the Royal Air Force.

“It’s nice to be back in Wales,” Kate 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.”

The mother of three visited the Ely & Caerau Children's Centre, which supports parents and offers kindergarten programs.

According to TODAY, she was also promoting a new child development survey called "5 Big Questions," that asks parents to share their biggest challenges in an effort to better support them.

“I see amazing work you’re doing here in so many areas,” she said. “It’s just bringing it to light. The critical work you’re doing has a massive social — and economic — impact later down the years.”

Kate also spent some time playing with the children and their guinea pigs in Cath’s Cottage, PEOPLE reported.

She also joined a baby sensory class according to the Kensington Palace Instagram.
