Kate’s stress is reportedly at an all-time high
After Harry and Meghan’s exit from the Family earlier this month, Kate has been shouldering more work than ever – and no letup is in sight.
In addition to raising three kids, Kate has been working 18-hour days, according to Glamour, and is, as the magazine reports, “in a panic.” Kate typically works a day or two a week of engagements, but last week she did four engagements in 72 hours, and this week we’ve seen her working every single day. This might be the new normal for Kate – and according to Us Weekly, “Kate’s in a panic and has been having bouts of anxiety. She barely has time to rest, and when she does try to sleep, her mind is constantly racing.”
Add to the mix that having two “employees” quit not only means more work, but, when they are family, it gets really, really personal. Her husband, William – her best friend – is reportedly gutted by all of this, so, in addition to raising three young kids and working 18-hour days back to back to back, she’s also the chief consoler for her husband, who is devastated – and also stressed to the max.
“She’s already stretched pretty thin, and now she’s really worried about how she’ll juggle the extra workload on top of her family life,” the source from Us Weekly said.
Plus, Us Weekly reports, Kate herself misses Harry – who was not just her brother-in-law but one of her best friends at one point. And – to be reported on at a later date when I have more information – it certainly doesn’t help that your uncle-in-law is being accused of rape and isn’t, apparently, cooperating at all with the Jeffrey Epstein investigation, all of this threatening the life’s work she committed to when she married William nearly a decade ago.
Before you pull out the world’s smallest violin, have a little empathy: It’s a lot to take on right now, and Kate seems to be shouldering a hefty chunk of the burden. I hope she’s still able to take some time for herself – like getting in her famous early morning runs – and that, as she is looking out for everyone else, someone is looking out for her.
