Kate Middleton discussed Valentine's Day during a visit to Leeds Kirkgate Market.

She was promoting her Shaping Us campaign, which focuses on the importance of a child's first five years of life.

Kate stopped at a flower stall, where the florist spoke with her about his business and presented her with hyacinths.

The florist predicted that Prince William would buy Kate red roses for Valentine's Day, but she said she didn't think he would.

Kate chatted with sellers and shoppers about early childhood.

Leeds has an ambition to be the best place in the UK for children and young people to grow up.

Kate made a new Instagram account for her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood and grew her social media reach.

The "champions" of the Shaping Us campaign appeared in a video exploring relationships, mental health, and identity.

Kate emphasized the importance of early childhood in shaping who we become as adults.
