Kate launches new social media page
The Princess of Wales has launched a new Instagram account, showing behind the scenes photos and videos of her work helping young children.
The page, with the handle @earlychildhood, is set to feature the work she is doing with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Children, including her new Shaping Us campaign.
So far, she has posted several shots of her launching the Shaping US project in Leeds with other ambassadors.
Talking about the campaign at the Bafta’s London HQ Kate said: “The campaign is fundamentally about shining a spotlight on the critical importance of early childhood and how it shapes the adults we become.
“During this time we lay the foundations and building blocks for life.
“And it is when we learn to understand ourselves, understand others and understand the world in which we live.
“This is why it is essential to not only understand the unique importance of our earliest years, but to know what we can all do to help raise future generations of happy, healthy adults.”

Meghan and Harry accused of ‘selling their family members out to make a buck’
Meghan and Harry have been warned about “profiting off their status” as senior royals, following a popularity drop.
Forbes writer Carlie Porterfield detailed criticism levelled at the Sussexes following the release of the Duke’s memoir on January 10.
Mr Porterfield said on the outlet’s YouTube channel: “Harry and Meghan’s popularity in the UK has fallen since a lot of these projects have come out, especially Spare.
“I think that people are a little more sensitive in the UK to how members of the Royal Family – even if they are not working like Harry and Meghan no longer are – profiting off of their status.
“What some people would say: ‘Selling their family members out to make a buck’. That is some criticism that has been levelled at them as well.”
Prince William join youngsters to speak about winter sports
Earlier this week, the Prince of Wales held a call with eight participants of the Arctic Winter Games.
William chatted with the participants representing the USA, Canada, Greenland and Sápmi (an area covering Norway, Sweden and Finland) about the events they are competing in.
As he listened to the sportspeople, the heir to the throne looked hugely impressed.
Kate, Princess of Wales, was featured in a new adorable video in which she met pupils at St John’s CE Primary School in Bethnal Green, London.
The Princess sat down with the children, all holding their favourite teddy bears, to discuss the most important people in their lives as part of the launch of her new campaign, Shaping Us.
In the two-minute-long video, Kate looked radiant in a green blouse, black trousers and heels as she stepped inside the classroom, where children happily welcomed her.

“The Princess Royal will undertake other engagements during her visit, including attending an Act of Remembrance (wreath laying) at Pukeahu National War Memorial in Wellington. Her Royal Highness will also rededicate the War Memorial at Cathedral Square in Christchurch.

Harry wanted to hold press conference to insist ‘I didn’t cheat’ after ‘accusation stuck’
Prince Harry revealed in his tell-all memoir, Spare, how he was accused of cheating in his some of his important school tests and he desperately wanted to set the record straight.
But the now 38-year-old said the Palace denied him the opportunity to hold a press conference to squash the spiralling accusations.
Writing in his book, the Duke of Sussex said: “I was accused of cheating. An art teacher came forward with evidence of cheating, which turned out not to be evidence of cheating.
“It turned out to be nothing at all, and I was later cleared by the exam board. But the damage was done.”
Harry revealed how the accusation had a big impact on him and he was keen to ensure people knew the truth.
He wrote: “The accusation stuck. Brokenhearted, I wanted to release a statement, hold a press conference, tell the world: I did the work! I didn’t cheat! The Palace wouldn’t let me.”
Meghan and Harry told to ‘move back to the UK’ as Americans turn on the Sussexes
Meghan and Harry have been urged to “move back to the UK” as Americans are becoming fed up with the couple’s antics.
The comments come amid outcry following the release couple’s Netflix series and Prince Harry’s bombshell memoir, Spare.
LA-based royal expert Kinsey Schofield told GB News: “I am going to tell you something you do not want to hear, in the States the conversation is Harry and Meghan need to apologise and they need to move back to the UK.
“That is what we are saying here in America, that they need to move back to the UK. I know that is the last thing Brits want.”
