William Hague, Baron Hague of Richmond (former Conservative Party leader) is to become the new chair of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Royal Foundation.

Lord Hague will take over from Sir Keith Mills, who is retiring after five years.

According to Rebecca English's twitter account (Royal Editor of the Daily Mail) with a series of three tweets:
Rebecca English @RE_DailyMail
Some movement at the Duke and Duchess’s Royal Foundation today - Simon Case has resigned as a trustee, which is entirely expected as he is now no longer Prince Wiliam’s private secretary. And respected broadcaster Zeinab Badawi has been appointed as a director.

The Royal Foundation's Early Years Online Forum (full):

This online forum is hosted by Dr Xand Van Tulleken (Associate Professor of Public Health at University College London) and features a presentation from Kelly Beaver (Ipsos MORI’s Managing Director of Public Affairs). Taking part in the panel discussion are: Dr Trudi Seneviratne (Registrar, Royal College of Psychiatrists, Adult & Perinatal Psychiatrist & Clinical Director), Jon Rouse (City Director, Stoke-on-Trent City Council) and Dr Guddi Singh (Paediatric Doctor, Evelina Children’s Hospital, Guy’s & St.Thomas’).

LocalGuardian :More than half a million people take part in Kate’s study on early childhood
Quote:
Kelly Beaver, managing director of public affairs at Ipsos MORI, said the response to the survey had been unprecedented.

“Ipsos MORI has been conducting research with the public in the UK for over 50 years and we have never seen a response like we did when the 5 Big Questions was launched,” she said.

Kate has made early years development one of the main pillars of her public work.

The online poll was the biggest survey of its kind on early childhood and aims to encourage a nationwide conversation on the subject.

Kate said in the video: “Earlier this year, we asked you five big questions about raising our under-fives.

“We wanted to hear what you think about the importance of the earliest years of our children’s lives.

“More than half a million of you answered that call.

“So we’ve taken your input, and combined it with even more public research to produce the UK’s biggest-ever study on the early years.
Kelly later said during the forum that The Royal Foundation and Ipsos MORI were hoping for 100,000 responses at best, they never expected 500,000+ (There were 527,898 responses to the ‘5 Big Questions on the Under-Fives’ globally and 435,141 responses in the UK.)
Imagine having that amount of samples for your thesis/dissertation envy ...

People: Kate Middleton’s ‘Influential’ Work for Children and Families Will Likely Have a ‘Long-Term Impact’: Expert
Quote:
Eamon McCrory, a professor of developmental neuroscience and psychopathology at University College London who joined Kate's steering group on this topic in 2018, has seen her experience and expertise blossom over that time.

"She is working with homelessness and mental health and with parents and perinatal care — she sees all aspects of the system," he tells PEOPLE. "She’s talking to neuroscientists and is interested in understanding what it means for parents or what does it mean if we are interested in tackling mental health. She is really interested in putting the pieces together and having a cohesive response.”

“She has genuine curiosity and a real respect and understanding of the science," McCrory says. "It’s really impressive.”

He adds: “There is a growing influence of her work, and it's likely to expand and have a long-term impact on the field.”

Executive Summary
Full Report

Quote:
The study methodology is mixed methods, with several sizeable quantitative surveys (pre and during the COVID-19 pandemic) alongside observational and qualitative research with parents and families. This report integrates findings from the following strands of research:
  • Face-to-face survey (December 2019 - January 2020):
A nationally representative face-to-face survey to provide robust, reliable and representative statistics on the views of the UK population. In total, 3,733 respondents were interviewed face to face. To allow analysis by nation, and by parents of 0 to 5-year-olds, more interviews were carried out among these groups. Findings discussed throughout this report are from this survey, unless otherwise stated.
  • 5 Big Questions (January 21st - February 21st, 2020):
An extensive public survey with over half a million people responding; 435,141 of which were from the UK.* An online questionnaire was shared as an openlink, so everyone was welcome to provide an answer. The intent of the ‘5 Big Questions’ was to spark a national conversation about the early years. The survey received a large response however it was not intended to be representative of the UK population as it simply reflects the views of those who took part. Findings from the 5 Big Questions are shown in blue boxes throughout the report.
  • Explanatory qualitative research (February 2020):
In-depth qualitative interviews with 40 parents of a 0 to 5-year-old who had taken part in the face-to-face survey, and an online community** to explore findings in more depth. Findings from this aspect of the research are described as ‘conversations with parents’ throughout the report.
  • Observational research (September-October 2019):
“Ethnographic research” with 12 families and 4 community leader interviews. Researchers immersed themselves in the home environment of families, following their daily routines to gain a detailed understanding of their attitudes to bringing up children. Case studies from this strand are presented throughout the full report in grey boxes.
  • Online survey (October 2020):
The strands of research described above were conducted between September 2019 and February 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic in the UK and worldwide. An online survey of 1,000 parents of 0-5s was carried out in October 2020 to identify any changes in parents’ experiences of the preceding 6 months, when the COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting every aspect of life in the UK. Reflections on parent attitudes over the period of the pandemic are shown in green boxes.
Quote:
There are three main themes that emerge from this research:
1. Promoting education and dissemination of evidence on the primacy of the early years to the whole of society.
(...)
2. The need to cultivate and sustain more support networks for parents to enhance their mental health and wellbeing.
(...)
3. Encouraging society as a whole be more supportive of parents, carers and families in the early years.
  • Most parents work hard to provide positive experiences for their children. However, parents face juggling priorities, conflicting demands on their time, stress and exhaustion. They also feel judged by others at home and in the community, primarily for their child’s behaviour. Parents require support and understanding from the whole of society.
  • When parents feel stressed and judged they may adapt their behaviour and relationship with their child and be more reluctant to seek support. This moderation of behaviour may impact their child(ren)’s long-term development11. Stress and judgement can impact parents’ wellbeing and mental health, with many parents often finding themselves prioritising other things over their own mental wellbeing.
  • It is important that parents feel that society as a whole supports them in bringing up their child. An environment in which parents feel able to access support is important for their own wellbeing and that of their child. Feeling that society is unsupportive can place undue pressures on parents, but also limit the depth and range of relationships, opportunities and (more formally) interventions that children experience.
  • We also find that parents see primary schools as having an important and sometimes equal role in supporting children’s development. Parents therefore need to be supported to understand the knowledge and skills that will provide their child with a good foundation for school and to be equipped to play their role in child development in the pre-school years.

Collectively these findings are intended to provoke discussion and debate. They identify key issues to address to ensure support for parents and carers to raise the next generation, and highlight an opportunity to help people understand the early years. The significance of this opportunity is not just its bearing on better outcomes for children but its impact on health and happiness for the whole of life and for future generations.

From Maternal Mental Health Alliance:
Study by the Duchess of Cambridge finds more than 1 in 3 parents expect the pandemic to have a negative long-term impact on their mental wellbeing
Quote:
What does it all mean and what’s next?

These insights highlight clearly that parents and carers need more support and advice to ensure good mental health and wellbeing in the perinatal period and beyond.

CEO of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance (MMHA), Emily Slater said:
“A heartfelt thank you to the Duchess for her unwavering determination in spear-heading this important work. These findings help raise the alarm as to how COVID-19 is impacting the UK’s parents – something the Maternal Mental Health Alliance is committed to shining a bright spotlight on.

“It is right we ensure parents are supported and know where to go for that support. In turn, this report shows how critical parents are to their children. For all of us who care deeply about the development of the under-fives, we must also care about the wellbeing of their parents and carers. The two are intertwined.”

Next year, The Duchess will announce ambitious plans to help elevate the importance of early childhood.
So there'll be at least 2 big events for The Royal Foundation next year: William's first Earth Shot and Catherine's Early Year next project.

How are the results of this survey going to have a profound impact on british children without tackling political issues ( austerity, cut of funding , food banks supporting) ?

From reading at the website, the study will focus on family's mental health rather than financial consequences impacted by COVID-19. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been focused on mental health for quite a while. With every topic appear to be politicised (i.e. environmentalism, heritage conservation, lockdown approaches), I'm not surprised that the study (by Duchess of Cambridge) has avoided anything remotely political.

https://maternalmentalhealthalliance...s-early-years/

Political issues such as national/centralised funding and furlough schemes should be left to the UK government not the Royal Family to avoid further controversies (i.e. breaking the politically neutral convention in a constitutional monarchy or working for/against the government). The Royal Family is there to represent every part of British society regardless of one's political alignment or social view. By supporting/attacking a government policy, there will be risks of alienating the public.

The Duchess of Cambridge is also not calling the government to put more fundings in mental health charities, which would also deem political. As long as the charity is not overtly political (bashing some political party or political ideologies), royal family members could support and get behind them in helping the community.

The last thing The Royal Family wants is to be accused of being champaign socialists or out of touch toffs.

It is a very delicate balancing act sometimes. If you watch her speech it brings up a lot of "political" or societal problems that have become very politized but she doesn't point fingers at who is to blame for them or openly lobby the government to provide the money and infrastructure. Others will do that. And in Kate's case early years, mental health, addiction is currently seen as less of one party vs another one even though there are obviously differences in how they handle it. Everyone agrees Something Must Be Done.

Like William can help create the Earhshot Prize but can't point fingers at various specific world governments or join Extinction Rebellion in the streets or post an anti BP meme.

"Thank you so much to everyone who submitted a question throughout the week - we've seen such an incredible response, touching on so many different aspects of the early years.

This is just the start of the conversation. Thank you for being part of it."

I agree that there isn't politics in presenting information and data and highlighting proven ways to help.

I love how Kate happily defers to others for answers rather than trying to look like she knows all the answers herself.

Dr Xand van Tulleken has written in the Telegraph on why his research team, including his twins, wants to collaborate with the Duchess of Cambridge's early years project.

Catherine seems to be genuinely passionate about early years work and it's great to see her invest so much time in it.

As a lot of her research overlaps with Catherine's work, my mother was invited to the meeting with Catherine but she had an overlap so someone who works for her was sent instead.

Over the past year all Early Years Meetings have been listed as just a meeting while all other meetings that any of the royals have held have been changed to via video or phone.

I wonder why they haven't either corrected the Early Years meetings or are they actually taking place 'in person' and so everyone at the meeting lives with Catherine.

This was incredible. I love William being able to draw from his own experiences as a frontline worker, he is able to relate because he has been there personally and has seen friends and coworkers go through it too.
