There are many causes that Kate MiddletonDuchess of Cambridge and Princess of Walesis associated in her capacity as a senior member of the British royal family, but if there’s one subject she feels passionately about, it’s the early childhood.

The mother of three has previously spoken at length about the formative years of a child’s life and what can be done to ensure they are physically and mentally healthy and enjoy a happy childhood. More recently, she wrote an opinion piece that was published by “telegraph‘.

In it, the princess observed that “if we are to create a healthier and happier society for future generations, we must begin by understanding and recognizing the unique importance of the first five years of life.”

The 40-year-old added that we need to do “everything we can to nurture our children” in the first five years of life, which she said are “the most preventative years”.

“Early childhood, from conception to the age of five, has a fundamental impact on our entire lives, laying the basic foundations that allow us to continue to thrive as individuals,” the duchess wrote.

According to her, “if we are going to address the kinds of complex challenges we face today, such as homelessness, violence and addiction, which are so often underpinned by poverty and poor mental healthwe must fully appreciate these most preventive years”.

The senior member of the royal family, who raised three children with her husband Prince William — next in line to the throne — often spoke of her children, who have distinctive personalities. She previously shared that it was block-parenting “exhausting” for her.

Before that, Kate took to Instagram to answer a few important questions about the early years of childhood. titled ‘Early years questions and answers‘, the caption read: ‘Thank you so much to everyone who sent in an early years question over the week. We have seen such an incredible response, touching on so many different aspects of early years.

“This is just the beginning of the conversation, and we look forward to continuing it in the months and years to come.”

On what got her interested in the subject, the duchess replied: “I think people assume that because I’m a parent, that’s why I got interested in the early years. I think this is really bigger than that. It’s not just about happy, healthy kids. It’s about society… From the early days, we meet a lot of people who suffer from addiction or poor mental health, and I hear over and over again that their problems now in adulthood stem from early childhood experience…”
