Kate Middleton spoke directly to her followers in a social media video Tuesday about her “5 Big Questions on the Under-5s” survey.
Middleton, who is mother to Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, launched the survey last month to help childhood educators better understand how early-life experiences can affect kids as they get older.
The Duchess of Cambridge encouraged people to fill out her survey before February 21 in the clip.

“That’s why I’ve launched the ‘5 Big Questions’ to hear from as many people from society as possible.”
“We visited Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England to hear your experiences,” Middleton added. “I’m really pleased over 200,000 people have filled out a survey but it’s not too late to have your say.”

The video comes after Middleton gave her first-ever podcast interview, chatting to Giovanna Fletcher on “Happy Mum, Happy Baby”.
The two ladies first met in Birmingham at the launch of “5 Big Questions on the Under-5s” and after a visit to LEYF Stockwell Gardens Nursery in London, the two sat down to record the chat about the duchess’ passion for early childhood.
Middleton recalled the first time Prince William held newborn Prince George, telling Fletcher: “Seeing the pure joy of his face, it was really special.”
