Princess Beatrice To Make Surprise Appearance For Heartfelt Reason

Princess Beatrice will help to
launch the World Dyslexia Assembly in Sweden, as the charity Made by Dyslexia
has called for systemic change in how the condition is handled in
schools and workplaces.

The royal was one of the
high-profile figures at the event who have a condition, which affects
the way that people read and write. Beatrice will join at the launch by
Richard Branson, members of the Swedish royal family including Princess
Sofia and her husband, Prince Carl Philip, who is also dyslexic.

They will also be joined
by New York City Mayor Eric Adams, as New York will host the forum in 2023.

The assembly, which will be
hosted by CNN anchor Robyn Curnow – who was diagnosed with dyslexia – will
feature panel discussions on how to empower dyslexic thinking in the
workplace and education settings.

The panels will hear from
industry representatives from firms like Microsoft, Meta, HSBC, and the
International Dyslexia Association, as well as high-profile people with the
condition.

The assembly comes at a time
when dyslexia is under-reported and misrepresented, with reports finding that
only one in ten teachers fully understand dyslexic thinking skills.

At the forum, Prince Carl
Philip said: “Through the Prince Couple’s Foundation, Princess Sofia
and I wish to do our part to contribute to an inclusive society; a society
that enables each individual to reach their full potential. Our wish is that
the Assembly contributes to new conversations, new collaborations and new
solutions that contribute to supporting every child and youth in being
themselves.”

Beatrice herself was diagnosed
with the condition when she was seven, and she refers to it as her
“gift”.

Speaking last year to Giovanna
Fletcher, she explained: “Honestly, what inspired me to talk about
dyslexia the way that I have, is because I really want to change the narrative
around the diagnosis.

“Even referring to it as
a diagnosis I feel does a disservice to the brilliance of some of the most
fantastic minds that we have. And I think just shifting the narrative a little
bit towards something that is positive, that is impactful, I think can really
help everyone.”

She added: “I was very
lucky that when I was first told that I had dyslexia, not one person around me
ever made me feel like it was a ‘lesser than’ scenario. It was always about
moving forward, it was always about what you could do. Never about what you
can’t. And that’s something that’s really, really important to me. I find it
very inspiring every day to talk about it. Because if you can just change one
little idea in someone’s head, then you’ve done a great thing.”
