“None of us are immune” to addiction, the Duchess of Cambridge warned as she highlighted the “devastating impact” of the pandemic on addiction rates.

She said that by understanding what lies beneath addiction “we can help remove the taboo and shame that sadly surrounds it”.

Catherine delivered the keynote speech at the launch of the Taking Action on Addiction campaign.

She also spoke to TV star Ant McPartlin about his struggles with addiction.

The duchess is patron of addiction charity the Forward Trust, which is behind the Taking Action on Addiction campaign.
