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.'

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 Pros and Cons of a Lunar Pit Stop

  The Pros and Cons of a Lunar Pit Stop NASA definitely wants to go to Mars. But does it need the moon to get there?President Donald Trump wants NASA to fly American astronauts to the lunar surface and beyond. Congress, the president said during his recent State of the Union address, should fund his administration’s new program “to ensure that the next man and the first woman on the moon will be American astronauts.” This effort, he said, would serve as “a launching pad to ensure that America is the first nation to plant its flag on Mars.

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.

Meghan And Harry Confirm They'll Step Down From Royal Duties On March 31

  Meghan And Harry Confirm They'll Step Down From Royal Duties On March 31 The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will begin their new life away from the royal family from March 31 and will announce details of their new non-profit organisation later in the year, a spokeswoman for the couple said. Harry and Meghan’s office have released an update about their plans and said the duke will retain the ranks of Major, Lieutenant Commander and Squadron Leader. Six royal engagements were also announced with Harry due to attend an Invictus Games event with pop star Jon Bon Jovi on February 28.

Among those to leave the service for a life of domesticity was Miss Glassborow, who married Peter Francis Middleton in 1946 in the village of Adel, Yorkshire.

The couple went on to have four sons, Michael, Richard, Simon and Nicholas in quick succession. 

Michael, the eldest, is the father of the Duchess of Cambridge and is known to have been close to his mother.

Miss Glassborow died in 2006, without ever speaking publicly of her wartime service.

Among the roughly 9,000-strong workforce was Valerie Glassborow, the paternal grandmother of the Duchess of Cambridge The launch of the survey followed eight years of work by The Duchess of Cambridge in which she has explored how experiences in early childhood often lie at the root of the hardest social challenges the country faces today. 

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.'
