During the interview the duchess speaks passionately of the SOS Children’s Village project saying: ‘There’s so many vulnerable women here but they’ve really used their positivity and the support that the village here provides them.

‘They have done it to support and protect the next generation of children in their care and give them the best possible start to their future lives.’
