Kate Middleton was in high spirits during her recent visit to Leeds.

She and Prince William toured Kirkgate Market and had a sweet exchange with a shopkeeper.

The shopkeeper joked that William was unlikely to buy Kate flowers for Valentine's Day.

Kate joked before establishing her early childhood awareness effort, Shaping Us.

Kate stopped at a florist's business and admired the flower display ahead of Valentine's Day.

The florist gave her a bouquet of hyacinths and joked that William would buy her roses.

Kate replied that she didn't think he would.

William's deployment to the Falkland Islands meant Kate and William's first Valentine's Day apart.

However, William made sure to treat Kate by sending her a card.
