"The Princess of Wales last night warned that ‘not enough is being done’ to help the next generation.
Kate Middleton pledged to use her role to do ‘everything she can’ to protect and nurture Britain’s youngsters.
Her pledge follows a decade of work and royal engagements in which she has focused closely on early years development.
She told The Daily Telegraph: ‘There are fantastic examples of what can be achieved when we recognise the unique potential of early childhood and build a safe and loving world around a child.
‘But not enough is being done. That is why I am determined to continue to shine a light on this issue and to do everything I can to secure much greater focus on those first crucial few years for the youngest members of our society — they are, after all, our future.’"
