‘There are 121 million children who don’t go to school,’ the Duchess reveals.
‘They not only don’t go to school but they don’t have the opportunity to go to school … and that statistic has to change.’
The Duchess’ daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, are both ambassadors for the charity, and their mother couldn’t be prouder – saying that the work has also been a boon for herself.
‘My work has saved my life,’ she says, ‘Kept me grateful, kept my feet on the ground.
‘Kept me realising how lucky that my children – Eugenie, as you now know, is disabled with 12in metal rods down her back, Beatrice is dyslexic with special needs at school – and yet they had an education, so why isn’t any other child allowed that same luxury?’
