It's been just over a month since Kate Middleton gave birth to Princess Charlotte, but sources say the Duchess is already struggling to meet the demands of life as a both a royal and a mother of two.
Photos of Kate and Prince George at a polo match cover the new issue of People, and inside the magazine, insiders reveal that Kate is feeling the strain of her dual roles and "breaking with tradition" by recruiting extra outside help.
One source claims that George has been more demanding than ever in the weeks since Charlotte entered the world.
"George doesn't let her have a minute to herself," says one anonymous insider.
Considering she had reportedly planned on taking an "extended" maternity leave following Charlotte's birth, many were surprised to see Kate in attendance at last weekend's Trooping the Colour parade.
Naturally, Kate's unexpected appearance has sparked Queen Elizabeth II "forced" her to return to the spotlight, but there are other possibilities for why Kate chose to greet her adoring public ahead of schedule.
She and William recently hired a new nanny to take care of the household duties at Anmer Hall, and Kate might be relishing any opportunity to get gussied up and wave to the crowd from the balcony at Buckingham.
We're sure a lot of new moms would enjoy such a change of pace.
