Although eyes weren't on James during his sister's famous wedding, he was rattled with nerves as he was charged with delivering a speech before the church — and the world. That task would be scary on it's own, but it was made worse by the fact that he suffers from dyslexia. "I had to retype the whole of the reading phonetically, and that's how I learned it," James confessed to the Daily Mail. "In that way I became confident in it, and then I felt I was perfectly capable of doing it. At the end of the day, whether it was in a little church or Westminster Abbey didn't matter, it was me, as a brother, doing a reading for my sister and her husband at their wedding and I wanted to do it right."
As the story goes, James was diagnosed with the learning disability at 11 years old and suffered much in grade school. "I was find with numbers, but it took me a longer time to grasp simple things like spellings," he said. "I used to spell everything phonetically, or I would have little tricks for words I could not figure out."
Today, he still faces some challenges and evidence of his dyslexia sometimes rears its ugly head. But for the most part, he doesn't care about it. "I do make lots of spelling mistakes still — for a time the word 'corporate' on my website was spelled 'corprate,'" he said. "But I'm not embarrassed. The way I see it, it is part of me. The key is to become completely confident about it… There is a talent in dyslexia — it can help you see things creatively. So I wouldn't change a thing."
