I started my career around family estrangement by writing about the issue for the national newspapers in the UK. I covered all angles - the financial struggles of young people, the emotional turmoil, the difficulties of reconciliation. I have occasionally become a reluctant Royal commentator as estrangement developed between many different members of our monarchy. I think any opportunity to talk about family estrangement in a non-judgemental way should be taken! These articles and pieces have put pressure on governments and brought comfort to many. There is something so powerful about seeing your struggle represented, and it having a normal face.
