Princess Kate shared a photo of herself as a baby on Instagram to promote the importance of early childhood.

The photo was taken by her mom, Carole Middleton.

The post is part of the Shaping Us initiative, which attempts to increase awareness about the influence of early infancy on later life.

The initiative encourages sharing childhood images and talking about early childhood memories.

Kate launched the Centre for Early Childhood in 2021 to promote the importance of the first five years of life.

She gave a major London speech and released a claymation short to promote early childhood experiences.

Kate visited Leeds Kirkgate Market to talk to vendors and members of the public about the early years.

Kate appeared in a video with 4-year-old and 5-year-old students to promote the campaign.

The campaign is supported by Royal Foundation "champions," including Giovanna Fletcher and Zara McDermott.
