Beatrice of York has a royal title and address, but is not part of the British Royal House and does not make commitments on behalf of Queen Elizabeth, her grandmother. However, in addition to being present at official family events, she is committed to a series of causes such as everything related to dyslexia, a disorder with which she herself lives and which she has spoken about publicly. She is also a Royal Patron of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity.

She is also linked to Made By Dyslexia, so it was not surprising that she made a trip to Stockholm with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, who is also dyslexic, to participate in the World Assembly on Dyslexia that took place in the Royal Palace. This symposium has been organized by Made By Dyslexia and the Prince Carlos Felipe and Princess Sofia Foundation.
United for inclusion
This act caused this meeting of royals who are not very used to seeing each other. Due to their position, Beatrice of York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi do not make institutional visits on behalf of the Crown, nor do they act as hosts, so the opportunities to coincide with the Swedish Royal Family are not very abundant despite the strong link that exists. between both dynasties.

Thus, this assembly made it possible to see Queen Silvia of Sweden and Prince Carl Philip and Prince Sofia of Sweden with Princess Beatrice of York and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in the same act. Before accessing the event itself at the Bernadotte Library, the Swedish Royal Family offered a reception for Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter and her husband in the rooms of the Swedish Royal Palace, where the five royals could be seen posing together.
“Princess Sofia and I want to contribute through the Foundation to an inclusive society that allows each individual to reach their full potential. Our hope is that the symposium will contribute to new conversations, new collaborations and the emergence of new solutions that contribute to all children and young people have the opportunity to be themselves”, said the Duke of Värmland, who is also dyslexic, about this symposium.
