Do any of the royals engage with prisoners?  I don’t think I’ve seen a single one do so. Given that the prison population is so disadvantaged, and rehabilitation not punishment is the aim these days, I wonder what the reason might be for any blind spot/reluctance….Any ideas? Or am I wrong and there is a royal who takes an interest…

Kate has - first in 2015 and again in 2020.

Kate Middleton‘s new mission centers around children under the age of 5 — and the last stop on her 24-hour tour of the U.K. showed the impact early years can have on a person’s life.

The royal mom headed to the women’s prison HMP Send in Surrey, England, on Wednesday to reconnect with former and current inmates she previously met during a 2015 visit. She learned how some of the women are rebuilding their lives and families after being successfully rehabilitated and released.

Palace insiders say that Kate’s mission to help women and children in the early years had been partly inspired by a previous visit to Send in 2015. It and other experiences have contributed to her view that adults with problems can normally trace them back to childhood and often pass them on to their own children.

Kate heard about the work done by the Forward Trust to support clients in improving their relationships with friends and families, including reuniting with children. She also spoke to women currently at the prison.

There I was, 18 and in prison. I tried to sign up for everything I could, it was that or face 23 hours every day in a cell. The local football club was running The Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE) and came to give a speech about how it could affect us. I was inspired and put my name down.

Princess Anne regularly visits prisons - usually half a dozen a year as she is the Patron of the Butler Trust. This year, due to covid, she has only been only able to undertake three such visits. They are recorded in the Court Circular.
