Duchess of Cambridge seeks out mum advice on parenting forum video

It's been revealed that even royal mums seek advice from parenting forums.

According to a new report by Reveal, the Duchess of Cambridge has registered a pseudonym on UK parenting forum Mumsnet to chat with other mothers.

And why not? Being a mum can be hard work and seeking advice of others can be of great help.

We can't help but wonder what some of her questions might be though.

How about: I think my kids might be allergic to their great grandmama's corgis. How do I tell her she can't bring them when she visits – I mean, she acts like she's the Queen of the house?

Or: I recently discovered my husband had been dad dancing again. I'm so embarrassed. What happens if my kids have his "daggy dancing" gene? Should I send them to dance classes?

Or: My kids keep stealing my tiaras and putting them on the cat. I can't make them stop. What should I do?

Or: Every time we go to the palace the kids stick their tongues out at the guards and if I try to stop them they just throw themselves on the floor crying. Even bribery isn't working!

Being a mum isn't easy - even if you're a royal one.

Being a mum isn't easy - even if you're a royal one.

We could go on, but it seems her problems are pretty normal, with a source claiming she posts questions about issues she and Prince William disagree on for their children George and Charlotte, like "watching cartoons before bed".

Although the Duchess will never admit to turning to "websites like Mumsnet and BabyCentre for guidance", the source said these sites have really helped her.

The duchess said in the past that while motherhood has been a "rewarding experience", there is also "overwhelming pressure".

This might explain her husband's recent exchange with Mumsnet's co-founder Justine Roberts, while he was presenting her with a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire). He joked that his wife "may well be" a Mumsnetter.

"We speculated that she might and that if she did, no doubt she would be joining in the conversations about feckless husbands," Robert said.
