The well-being of the children comes first. Kate Middleton has always been very attentive to problems related to childhood and the growth of the little ones. For this long time, the Princess of Wales, together with her Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood, has begun work on a new campaign entirely dedicated to the first five years of children’s lives. And she announced it with a long letter published on social media.

“I am delighted to announce that the Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood will be launching a major new awareness campaign, emphasizing the pivotal importance that the first five years of our lives have in shaping the adults we become,” explains the Princess of Wales who at the end of the letter, published in full on the Foundation’s website, chose to sign Catherine. «During our very early childhood, our brains develop at an incredible rate, faster than at any other time in our lives. Our experiences, relationships, and environment at that young age shape the rest of our lives. It is a time when we lay the foundations and building blocks of life. It’s when we learn to understand ourselves, understand others, and understand the world we live in.”

To work better, Kate Middleton has chosen to meet eight professionals from the academic, scientific and children’s sectors who will join the Foundation and who will supervise its work.

“As a society, we currently devote much more time and energy to future life”, continues the princess in her letter. “I am convinced that this long-term campaign will change things. It will begin by highlighting how we develop during early childhood and why these years matter so much in terms of shaping who we become. I will be joined by an impressive group of experts spanning science, research, policy making and frontline work, as well as an exciting group of familiar faces from music, sport and television to show us all why it is in our best interests to address this”.
