Speaking of the survey, Kate said: 'I think ultimately if you look at who's caring and looking after and nurturing children in the most vital period from pregnancy all the way to the age of five, you know parents and carers are right at the heart of that, and families are right at the heart of that, and although I've spoken to the scientists and the service providers, it's so important to listen to families.'

'What is it that they aspire to? What are their challenges? What we're doing with the survey is asking people – what is it that matters for them in raising their children today. 

'It's going to take a long time – I'm talking about a generational change – but hopefully this is the first small step: to start a conversation around the importance of early childhood development.'

'It's not just about happy, healthy children. This is for lifelong consequences and outcomes.'   

Kate went on to say a 'happy home' and a 'safe environment' were also aspects of her childhood she wanted to provide her own children with.

'As children, we spent a lot of time outside and it's something I'm really passionate about. I think it's so great for physical and mental wellbeing and laying (developmental) foundations,' the mother-of-three said.

'It's such a great environment to spend time in, building those quality relationships without the distractions of "I've got to cook" and "I've got to do this." And actually, it's so simple.'

Kate's codebreaking family history at Bletchley Park

The Duchess of Cambridge's grandmother Valerie Glassborow and her twin sister Mary were among the codebreakers stationed at the top secret base at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. 

The crack team, which also included famed British mathematician Alan Turing, of researchers and cryptographers was tasked with intercepting and interpreting enemy communication and breaking the German enigma code.

The Duchess , who has three children , has given a landmark interview to the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast , hosted by Giovanna Fletcher. In it, she will speak as never before about her own experiences as a first -time mother and the challenges she has in common with women across Britain.

Enigmas, which resembled large typewriters, were used by German air, naval and army forces to safely send messages throughout the Second World War.

It used a complex series of rotors and lights to encrypt messages by swapping letters around via an ever-changing 'enigma code'. The code was eventually broken in 1941 by mathematicians at Bletchley - a feat that proved a crucial turning point in the war.

Then a young, unmarried woman, Valerie Glassborow worked in Hut 16 on the estate, which is no longer standing. 

Many of her colleagues were 'ordinary' middle-class women like herself, whose work, kept secret for almost half a century, helped change the course of the war.  

However very few went on to pursue a career in intelligence. Indeed of the 9,000 people who worked at Bletchley Park during World War II, just 600 women went on to join the fledgling GCHQ or other branches of the secret services.

What we experience in the earliest years – from in the womb to the age of five – is instrumental in shaping our future lives. 

Her Royal Highness has spent time meeting with families across the country and hearing about the issues they deal with day-to-day, in addition to speaking with academics, experts, organisations and practitioners. 

In May 2018, The Duchess convened a steering group of experts to focus on how to bring about positive, lasting change in this area.

Talking helps unite us all.

'Having been with the Duchess of Cambridge on a couple of engagements to celebrate the launch of the 5 Big Questions survey, it was clear how passionate she is about the Early Years.'

'It was then beyond wonderful to sit and talk further about the survey, her work – for which she has so much knowledge, and her own experiences of being a mother. This is a very special episode of the podcast and I'm very excited for people to hear it.'
