Princess Beatrice suffers from mild dyslexia, as her mother, the Duchess of York, also did.
She required special help with reading and writing at the Arkell Dyslexia Centre prior to taking her GCSE's. She wanted the fact that she suffers from dyslexia to be made public knowledge to help others with the condition.
But Andrew has always wanted his children to have more prominent roles and has renewed his efforts in recent months.
Indeed, some say just as the social-climbing Princess Michael of Kent became known as Princess Pushy now it is time for that irreverent title to pass to Andrew, Prince Pushy himself.
Apparently Andrew, 57, contacted Kylie, 48, to offer his condolences on the breakdown of her relationship and this led to them speaking more frequently, with Kylie reportedly spending much of her time with the prince over the last fortnight.
Given that Zara, who had a much higher profile as an Olympic medal-winning sportswoman, had no bodyguards this was always a weak argument.
She has a long history with them, attending the Royal Variety Performance, charity work and even being invited to sing at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
Here, we take a look at Kylie’s long relationship with the royal family…
The story goes that Kylie has been ‘quietly dating’ the Duke of York ‘for weeks’, following her split with Joshua Sasse in February.
It is alleged that the pair, who are said to be ‘close friends’, got back in contact after the Australian singer-songwriter split with her fiancé earlier this year, according to Aussie magazine New Idea.
