Princess Beatrice Opens Up About Dyslexia Battle

Filed under: Have you seen?

Princess Beatrice has opened up about her battle with dyslexia, encouraging young schoolchildren that it should be seen as an "opportunity" rather than an inhibition.

The princess shared her encouraging words of wisdom with pupils at the Bolingbroke Academy and the ARK Globe Academy.

According to Hello! magazine, Princess B said: "Dyslexia is not a pigeonhole to say you can't do anything. It is an opportunity and a possibility to learn differently. You have magical brains, they just process differently. Don't feel like you should be held back by it.

"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 was something I couldn't really get my head around."

But, she added, it was JK Rowling's Harry Potter that really got her into reading: "The second the story came out, I couldn't put it down. Now I read so much quicker, so much better and I studied history at university which involved a lot of reading."

The positive note comes after it was recently reported that Bea was "furious" with her boyfriend Dave Clark for flashing his bum at the camera while frolicking on the beach with supermodel Karolina Kurkova at the Eden Rock resort in St Barths. Oops. A few brownie points to be made up there wethinks.

And nothing can really stop you getting to the top, all you need is a father who is prince of the realm, and a mother who is a nympho

I am sick of reading stories of these utterly useless daughters of Air Miles and Bribe me.
Two of the biggest royal parasites burdened onto the Uk taxpayer.

Disagree, both she and her sister got good A Levels and Eugenie had a scoliosis in her spine for which she needed surgery as I did but has recovered well, did a bike ride for the hospital that treated her and now works for an auction house in New York, nothing 'parasite' about her
