Beatrice was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was a young student. Since then, she has been an advocate for people with dyslexia and fighting the stigma surrounding the learning disorder.

In an interview with Hello! in August 2020, she shared that it would be a positive thing for her child to have dyslexia (which is a heritable trait that her husband also has).

“I was thinking about this as well, 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,” she shared. “I think it’s really important for every parent, that they feel they are not alone in this.”

Beatrice added, “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. And I think life is about the moments, it’s the challenges that make you.”

Beatrice got to experience helping a young child with their schoolwork this past year when many schools went virtual because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. She had to chance to homeschool her “bonus son.”

“Homeschooling, that was definitely not my forte! Not going to lie,” she told Hello!. “Sadly, I can’t blame that on dyslexia. But I’ve felt very lucky to have had the chance to work with my bonus son (Wolfie) over the course of the school closures. It was a huge learning curve for all of us.”
