Or do you disagree that she'll even be a working mom?  She'll still have her normal royal duties to resume once she's ready, it all depends on how you look at it.  What do you think?  Does it make it easier because she'll have more support staff in her position, or will it be harder because every move she makes as a mother will be under the scrutiny?   In today's age of social media, every move she makes will be up for public opinion.  

There has already been applause for her decision to show off her post baby pump, and criticism over how their baby was buckled into his car seat, and that was just in one appearance!  There are also calls for her to breastfeed in public, which can put a lot of pressure on a new mom.  Do you think that she'll be held up as an example of a busy mom juggling a career and a family?

I would think that some things will be easier because of her particular circumstances and some things will be harder, like for anyone. She does have parents who might actually babysit and stuff, which is a plus.

Yes it does depend on how you look at it, Did she have a paying job before the baby was born?  I see her as a doting mother with royal duties that will keep her busy.  I like how different the two sets of parents are, Charles and the commoners her parents are and I hope she never forgets or loses those humble roots.  I'm sure she'll be a wonderful mom but they'll have a lot of help too.
