Kate Middleton found herself in tears as she spoke with struggling young mothers this week.
The 33-year-old princess was seen getting emotional on Wednesday when she attended a meeting at the Cape Hill Children's Center in Birmingham.
According to People, Prince George's mom listened attentively as a group of mothers told her their tales of suffering. Some of these woman discussed battles with depression, while others opened up about life-threatening conditions.
"[She] made eye-contact with all of us," noted one mother in explaining how Kate listened one by one to their "heart-wrenching stories".
Kate managed to remain composed for most of the meeting, though a story told by 33-year-old Michelle Griffith at last reduced the princess to tears.
Griffith has a rare heart condition which puts her at high risk for a sudden heart attack at any time. Her 13-year-old daughter, Chloe, has to watch her at all times and Griffith feels that this condition has "stolen" Chloe's childhood. Kate become overwhelmed with emotion while hearing this story, holding back the tears as she listened carefully to Griffith's tale.
With a one-year-old son and another soon on the way, Kate has made the aide of struggling families and children part of her platform. She has visited a number of facilities over the last few weeks, speaking with parents and chatting with the kids one-on-one.
Kate is expected to give birth to her second child in April.
