The 39-year-old royal is currently living in Anmer Hall, her Norfolk home with Prince William, 38. She and her family are living here instead of their Kensington Palace home during the coronavirus.
Most parents have been at home with their children since the start of lockdown, and the royals are no different.
However, the couple does have help to raise their children.
Since shortly after the birth of their first child they employed the help of a Norland Nanny.
Norland Nannies are trained at Norland College in Bath.
Kate and William hired Maria Borrallo, a Spanish childcare expert who trained at the college, and she is still working with them.
Another Norland Nanny, Nanny Louenna, is offering her expertise on her new app.
She spoke exclusively with Express.co.uk to offer her advice, especially during lockdown.
Making sure children get enough sleep and enjoy their hobbies is important.
Nanny Louenna told Express.co.uk: “Tired children will find it very hard to focus or learn so keep a bedtime routine, as you would on a school night.

“All my children’s sleep tips are on the app.”
Hobbies are important, whatever they are, she said.
“Life is not all about school, it’s about family and relationships and enjoying your hobbies,” Louenna said.
“With all this extra time at home, we now have time to practice the hobbies that usually get sidelined – it could be that your child has a passion for baking, or playing football, or sewing, or painting.
“And these hobbies could turn into a lifelong passion so try and spend some time helping them improve their skills.”
She also revealed her number one childcare priority.
“A safe and happy home is the number one priority during lockdown and hopefully the end is in sight,” Louenna said.
Nanny Louenna’s app has been created for parents all around the world.
After graduating from Norland College 15 years ago, Louenna has worked with high profile families to care for their young children.
Now all her know-how will be available to parents all over the world.
The Nanny Louenna app contains expertise from Louenna herself, as well as experts including pediatric first aid from Jenni Dunman of Daisy First Aid, pre- and post-natal fitness advice from top London trainer Lily Gredley, and speech and language expert Hannah Scully.
Parents can enjoy expertise on essentials from feeding, bathing and changing, to sleep routines, potty training and language development.
The app also contains over 100 activity ideas to do with babies and children that are both enjoyable and educational.
