  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “‘Great social challenges of our time’: The Duchess of Cambridge discusses the early years” – below is their description.

    The Duchess of Cambridge has called for early years development to be “on par with the other great social challenges of our time” as she warned that change might not be fully felt for a generation. In a passionate keynote speech, delivered at a Royal Foundation forum, the Duchess revealed that her own interest in early childhood did not stem from becoming a mother, insisting that being a parent was “not a prerequisite for understanding the importance of the early years.” She warned that waiting until parenthood before showing an interest was too late. The Duchess has unveiled the findings of the biggest ever UK study on the early years, which reveals that only a quarter of parents understand the critical importance of early childhood. The report, commissioned by the Royal Foundation, concludes that parents need better support and access to information from society as a whole.
