Princess Beatrice becomes Patron of
Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre
The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre is delighted to announce that Princess Beatrice has agreed to become its Royal Patron. Her Royal Highness attended the Centre’s Graduation Ceremony at Farnham Castle on 17th April where she met staff and pupils.
Princess Beatrice was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven and received specialist help and support from the Centre throughout her secondary education.
Her Royal Highness went on to pass eight GCSE’s, three A levels and graduated with a 2:1 in History and the History of Ideas from Goldsmiths College, London. Princess Beatrice allowed details of her literacy problems to be made public to highlight the difficulties faced by dyslexics.
Princess Beatrice said: “I am greatly honoured to become Patron of The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre. I have benefited hugely from their work and I am looking forward to supporting them in giving a chance to others to benefit from their experience and teaching. I would not have been able to achieve my academic results without the support I received from the Centre.”
Bernadette McLean, Principal of the HADC, said: “Princess Beatrice will be a great ambassador for the Centre and a wonderful role model for all our dyslexics, young and old. Her experiences mean that she has a clear understanding how appropriate support can help dyslexics fulfil their potential.”

Princess Beatrice sends her congratulations to the seven marathon runners who completed the Marathon and who have raised a magnificent sum of money for our bursary fund!
At HADC dyslexia is our speciality
We believe dyslexic people are special, and we specialise in dyslexic people. All dyslexics are individuals, and a large part of our work is dedicated to identifying those children and adults alike who are faced with the challenges of dyslexia.
Dyslexia is much more common than most people think and affects as many as one in every eight people. If identified early most dyslexics quickly learn to cope well, are at no real disadvantage in life, and often find their dyslexia a positive asset in later years.
