Kate has launched her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, which she says will help “raise awareness of why the first five years of life are just so important for our future life outcomes, and what we can do as a society to embrace this golden opportunity to create a happier, more mentally healthy, more nurturing society.”

The foundation’s first project will be the Big Change Starts Small report, which brings together all the research into the early years of children into one place.

The report, which was written in collaboration with The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University and the London School of Economics, also reveals the $23 billion cost to society of the remedial steps needed to address issues, including children in care, along with short- and long-term mental and physical health issues. The report believes some of this might have been avoided through action in early childhood.

“Our first five years lay important foundations for our future selves. This period is when we first learn to manage our emotions and impulses, to care and to empathise, and thus ultimately to establish healthy relationships with ourselves and others,” Kate wrote in the foreword to the report.

“It is a time when our experience of the world around us, and the way that moulds our development, can have a lifelong impact on our future mental and physical wellbeing,” Kate continued. “Indeed, what shapes our childhood shapes the adults and the parents we become.”

The announcement of the foundation comes after Kate shared a message with followers after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.
