Princess Beatrice on dyslexia: 'That diagnosis is a wonderful gift ...'

Princess  Beatrice,  33, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II,  95, has struggled with dyslexia for most of her life but is grateful for the diagnosis.

Beatrice, who was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven, in a recent interview with Hello! she said she thinks it was a ‘great learning opportunity’.

I want to talk about my dyslexia because I really want to change the narrative related to that diagnosis,” she said.

Her husband  Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi,  38, has also been diagnosed with dyslexia, but the princess claims she would not be upset to claim the same about her children, as dyslexia is a ‘wonderful gift’.

- It's a matter of perspective. For me, it was always about how to progress, what I can do, not what I am prevented from doing - said Beatrice.

The younger daughter of Prince Andrew,  61, added that she was glad to have the opportunity to support the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity organization and said her goal was to help as many children with the diagnosis as possible.

Beatrice is currently expecting their first child together with her husband and is the stepmother to his son Christopher Woolf ‘Wolfie’  (5) from a previous relationship. The couple secretly got married last year, in the royal family circle.

Princess Beatrice’s child will be the 12th great-granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, and she is not currently expected to receive the royal title. Yet, because Edoardo is an Italian count, their child may have a title from that side of the family.
