The couple shares the same values when it comes to family and parenting, but there's one particular reason the pair understands one another so well, creating a special bond.

Princess Beatrice is the only British royal known to be dyslexic, so being married to someone who understands what it’s like to live with dyslexia is likely a big relief to the princess.

The British Dyslexia Association notes that dyslexia can make relationships difficult to navigate, as it can affect memory, organisation, time-keeping, concentration, multi-tasking and communication.

"If you're in a relationship with someone whose brain works differently to yours it can be confusing and frustrating," the organisation notes. "Especially if you have the responsibility of running a household and family together."

Princess Beatrice and Edoardo understand eachother

Princess Beatrice revealed Edoardo's dyslexia in an interview with HELLO! in 2021, when she was pregnant, revealing that she had started thinking about the future and wondering whether her own children would have dyslexia too.

"My husband's also dyslexic so we'll see whether we're having this conversation in a couple of months' time with a new baby in the house, but I really see it as a gift," Beatrice told HELLO!

She added: "I was thinking about this, that if any child, any bonus son, or future babies that are on their way, are lucky enough to be diagnosed with dyslexia, I feel incredibly grateful to have tools such as the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity to be able to tap into, to give them that extra support. I think it's really important for every parent, that they feel they are not alone in this."
