Kate replied: “I actually get asked this question a lot. I think that people assume that because I am a parent, that’s why I have taken an interest in the early years.

“I think this really is bigger than that. This isn’t just about happy, healthy children.

“This is about the society we could and can become.

What did Kate say about her own childhood?

“Right from the early days, meeting lots of people who are suffering with addiction or poor mental health, and hearing time and time again that their troubles now in adulthood stem right back from early childhood experience.”

And as for Kate’s wondering about how to deal with temper tantrums, deputy head of the Early Years programme at the Anna Freud Centre, Alice Haynes, stepped in.

She said: “When my son has a temper-tantrum, I try to put into words how I think he might be feeling in a slow and calm and gentle way.”

Meanwhile, Kate even opened up a little about her own childhood.

While another user gushed: “You are going to make a fantastic Queen one day! Thank you for highlighting issues and areas that often are passed over for more mainstream issues! You make a difference.”
