Ahead of the engagement Kensington Palace said: “Stemming originally from her interests in issues such as addiction and the effects of family breakdown, and her visits to charities and support organisations, Her Royal Highness has been struck time and time again by how so many of society’s greatest social and health challenges often stem from problems that start to manifest themselves in the earliest years of life.”
