Transcript for Podcaster shares story behind Duchess Kate's candid interview
Love that. Our "Gma" cover story, the inside story behind Kate Middleton's interview. Amy has the story. Good morning. We get a different, much more candid side to the future queen of England in this podcast interview. But it was the heartwarming moments leading up to it that left a lasting impression on the interviewer, Giovanna Fletcher sat down it tell us about it. The future queen opening up like few have heard her. The interviewer who sat down with her speaking to "Gma." It's such a privilege to be there actually chatting about motherhood and not feeling like I'm talking to someone in the royal family. Reporter: Giovanna Fletcher says when she was granted a 45-minute interview with the duchess on her podcast happy mum, happy baby she never expected her to be so candid. Do you struggle with mom guilt. Yes, absolutely. Anyone who doesn't as a mother is actually lying. I never heard her speak in that way before. You're hearing her be self-deprecating. That laughter, the way she talks about her husband, about her children, about her childhood. There's that playfulness in her voice. Reporter: Fletcher sat down with Kate last month after they visited a local nursery school and says it was a conversation with these children about peppa pig that seemed to ease both of their nerve. There was one girl there who kept saying her name was peppa. Reporter: Kate opening up for the first time about everything from hip know birthing. I saw the power of it, the meditation and the deep breathing. Reporter: To the mixed emotions she felt about debuting prince George outside of the Lindo wing hours after giving birth. I'm not going to lie. William and I were really conscious that, you know, this was sort of something that everyone was excited about. I think when you speak to her there is that sense of duty but in such a way that she loves it. Reporter: Despite the chaos of everyday life Kate says watching her children experience simple wonders brings her the most joy. I got this one photo Charlotte smelling a bluebell and really for knee moments like that mean so much to me as a parent. So many parents can relate to those moments where the best times, the ones that really sit with you are the ones that just happen spontaneously on their own. It really was a rare interview. Humanizing the future king in a new way and Giovanna saying it made people realize Kate is just a mom like everyone else. They're just like us, guys. They're just like us.
