The Princess of Wales said in her speech: "People often ask me why I focus my time on early childhood.

"The answer is because I care deeply about making a positive difference, in helping the most vulnerable and supporting those who are most in need.

"This is not just about the youngest children in our society, who are, by their very nature, vulnerable.

"It is also about the many young people and adults who are suffering.

"We must do more than simply meet the short-term needs of these individuals.

"We must also look at creating long-term, preventative change. And that takes us right back to the beginning."

The speech outlined an urgent need for a greater understanding of the impact of childhood on adults.

The Princess of Wales also highlighted the importance of focusing on early childhood and grasping the "golden opportunity" to establish the core foundations and capabilities needed to thrive.

Kate's speech concluded: "It is therefore time we understood that building a healthier world means nurturing the foundations that support our children – everything from the systems that govern early care through to our attitudes to those raising the next generation, and the support they receive.

"Because if we can create a society which sees the child within every adult – and the adult within every child – we will finally start to change it for the better."
