I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was seven, and it was a bit of a struggle, to begin with. It was a challenge as I began my school career – spelling and reading were something I couldn’t really get my head around.
I know I’m very lucky. A lot of it is quite normal, scooting around the supermarket with a shopping trolley and things like that. With one parent being a prince and the other being an amazing sort of… businesswoman.
When I was younger, I was diagnosed with dyslexia, which meant, for me, sitting in front of a book was really hard – until I discovered Harry Potter, and this character, this 11-year-old boy, who suddenly gets off to school for the first time, captured my imagination, and suddenly reading was fun. Reading was inspiring, and I was motivated.
I am greatly honored to become Patron of The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre. I have benefited hugely from their work, and I am looking forward to supporting them in giving a chance to others to benefit from their experience and teaching.
You have to find an identity that’s true to yourself. You really have to find your own voice.
