Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has embarked on a 24-hour tour of the country launching a landmark UK-wide survey on early childhood.
Conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of The Royal Foundation, the survey aims to spark the biggest ever conversation on early childhood that will ultimately help bring about positive, lasting change for generations to come.
The Duchess ends the tour today by visiting HMP Send, to hear about the considerable effect that experiences in the early years can have on the rest of your life.
Her Royal Highness spoke to some of the women she met during a visit to the prison in 2015, who have since been successfully rehabilitated, released and are rebuilding their families, in addition to women currently at the prison.
The Duchess also heard about the work that the Forward Trust do at HMP Send in supporting clients to improve their relationships with friends and family, including reconnecting with children.
