She hasn't had surgery .... Apparently they decided it was not the best choice for them .

As an English teacher I was aware that people with dyslexia are often talented. They are often especially good at math and engineering. Many engineers are dyslexic. My husband was an engineer for Boeing, and was not dyslexic, but could not spell. He made up for this by having a wonderful secretary, and me. Dyslexia is not a significant handicap. I am not making light of the dyslexic's struggle, but just saying it is a minor disability. Nothing at all compared to Down's Syndrome, for instance.

Seems like a lot of royals from different households have dyslexia to varying degrees. I'm surprised at how many have this challenge. Because so many of them have this, I'm wondering if dyslexia might have a genetic link or something which could be inherited. Seems like it runs in families in some cases.

My late brother was like that. He was brilliant with anything mechanical and very, very witty; however, he absolutely hated the classroom and didn't do well there. Once he got out working, he did very well.

Dyslexia can be inherited. My husband and my oldest daughter have dyslexia as do my son and I. My son's and mine comes out in our physical coordination-we have no problems with reading, writing or spelling but are really klutz. I have a grandaughter who has mild dylexia. There are different degrees of dyslexia and it does not always manifest itself in the reading or writing abilities of the person

Here is the definition of dyslexia. It is a disability connected with reading. It has nothing to do with being un-coordinated.

In 1930 she was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Well I have a physical disability which doesn't affect my mind so I could be a monarch. I also have friends who have mental disabilities and based on the people I know I don't think they could do it. I don't think they would be able to cope.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infant...ke_of_Calabria

The oldest son of Charles III of Spain & Maria Amalia of Saxony was excluded from inheriting the throne due to his "imbecility"

"As he grew up, it was confirmed that he had disabilities, especially by his peculiar face"

Might he have sufered from Down's syndrome?

Possible but more likely he suffered from something else. Records say that he suffered from a larger then normal head. Down syndrome is the opposite children suffer from microcephaly. There are a number of disorders which cause macrocephally, the larger head, which cause seizures, mental slowness and other issues described with the infante.

Macrocephaly
