Kate Middleton has spoken of her ambition to put the early years on an equal footing with the other great social challenges and opportunities of our time. It is a milestone moment for her work on the importance of early childhood in shaping the rest of our lives and broader societal outcomes. The research, commissioned by The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and conducted by Ipsos MORI, reveals what the UK thinks about the early years. The duchess has made early years development one of the main pillars of her public role since she first became a member of the royal family. This afternoon's online forum was hosted by Dr Xand Van Tulleken (Associate Professor of Public Health at University College London) and featured a presentation from Ipsos MORI's Managing Director of Public Affairs, Kelly Beaver.
