For several years and out of personal interest, Princess Beatrice has supported charities that are committed to educating children. When she was seven years old, Beatrice was diagnosed with dyslexia. Dyslexia or also called dyslexia.

Her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, is also dyslexic. The probability that their daughter Sienna will also have problems is genetically higher. But it’s not a problem for Beatrice, as she says in the podcast “Lessons in Dyslexic Thinking” by Kate Griggs. “As two dyslexics, we as parents will figure out whether our children have dyslexia and how we can best support them,” she explains. “I believe that being part of this community has given me a better understanding, and I wish that for all parents,” said the niece of King Charles III.

Looking back, Beatrice says she received sufficient support from her family. “My family and I are incredibly close, and I would say that throughout our lives we have been able to get through everything together with humor and joy,” she explains. At the beginning of her school education, she often asked herself why she didn’t “belong there,” said the Princess.

“I remember trying to take tutoring lessons from teachers and just staring blankly at [my teacher’s] face and she was like, ‘Why are you looking at me? The words aren’t on my face.’ And I said: ‘They’re not on the page either!'” says Beatrice. Beatrice received encouragement and praise from her sister Eugenie, who posted an excerpt from the interview on Instagram and said she was proud of her sister.

Beatrice isn’t the only European royal to suffer from dyslexia. Prince Carl Philip of Sweden was also diagnosed with the disorder in childhood. He himself has already spoken about it publicly. “Not long ago, people with dyslexia were often considered stupid. Or lazy. Or both. Today we know better. We know that dyslexia is so much more than just difficulty reading or writing. Dyslexia can also be linked to traits such as creativity , the ability to recognize patterns and strong problem-solving skills,” he said at the World Dyslexia Assembly in Sweden last year.
