We are so excited that the Duchess of Cambridge is the latest guest on bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher’s brilliant podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby. Like her non-fiction title of the same name, the podcast is a reflection on motherhood and has welcome guests such as Jessie Ware, Bryony Gordon and Caitlin Moran.

In the episode, the Duchess of Cambridge discusses the launch of her landmark survey ‘5 Big Questions on the Under Fives’ and the work that has lead up to the launch. She also talks frankly about her childhood, mum guilt, pregnancy, the importance of the early years and the realities of raising three young children.

Giovanna’s latest book, Letters on Motherhood will be published by Michael Joseph on 20th February in hardback and ebook. Letters on Motherhood is a collection of heartfelt and deeply poignant letters written by Giovanna to her three young sons Buzz, Buddy and Max, husband, Tom, and the family and friends who have inspired and supported her to become the mother that she is today. In this beautiful book, she shares the funny and moving personal tales of her own family life, peppered throughout with her poignant family photos bringing her stories to life.

Giovanna grew up in Essex with her Italian dad Mario, mum Kim, big sister Giorgina and little brother Mario, and with family playing such a big part of her life it was only natural that she had always dreamed of having children of her own. Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have two young sons Buzz and Buddy and share glimpses of their family life through their YouTube channels (giovannasworld) and on their social media (twitter: @mrsgifletcher, facebook: MrsGiFletcher and Instagram: mrsgifletcher). A bestselling novelist, actress, TV presenter, vlogger and blogger, Giovanna is most importantly a mum and her pledge to spread positivity wherever she goes has earned her a vast following.
