Princess Beatrice gave a rare interview to charity Made By Dyslexia on Friday, giving an honest and moving account of her own experience with dyslexia and opening up about her childhood. The royal, who looked beautiful wearing a pale blue blouse and a statement pair of pearl hair clips, told the camera: "I was very lucky, I got to go to a school that was very nurturing and supporting… [but] I would describe the actual day to day learning side of things – very challenging. We had different coloured books to describe where your reading levels had got to, and I was always on the white books.

"My best friends were always on the yellow books or the green books, they were so far ahead," she added. "And I think at that stage, those moments of doubt just pop into your head. 'I'm not good enough, I'm not smart enough, why am I not like the others?'"
