Kate Middleton is pretty in blue as she shares a new video to promote her Shaping Us campaign

The Princess of Wales was pretty in blue today as she appeared in a new star-studded video promoting her early years campaign.

Earlier this week, she kicked off her new ‘Shaping Us’ initiative, which she described as her ‘life’s work’ with a glitzy reception at BAFTA in London, before meeting with locals in Leeds yesterday to discuss the scheme.

In a new video shared today on her Early Childhood Instagram page, which also featured Fearne Cotton and Professor Green, the princess explained, “Many aspects of our lives today have roots in early childhood.”

In the clip, she was dressed in a blue bespoke Jenny Packham dress that she first wore in 2019 while visiting Northern Ireland.

The video then features a number of celebrities, including Giovanna Fletcher and Zara McDermott.

They explained that “how we love, how we treat our mental health, and how we form relationships” can all be influenced by those early childhood experiences.

The video was shared with the caption, “You may not realize it, but our early childhood years shape everything from the way we form relationships to the way we deal with stress.

“A huge thank you to our champions for spreading the word.”

Among The Celebrities Featured In The Clip Was Fearne Cotton, Who Spoke About How Early Childhood Can Affect Mental Health

In the clip, the royals swept her hair in a bouncy blow-dry style and tucked some of it behind her shoulder.

She opted for neutral make-up for the occasion, with a hint of eyeliner and a touch of nude lip gloss.

Meanwhile, she wore minimal jewelry and simply opted for a pair of earrings.

The project, which kicked off yesterday, is a long-term project for the princess, starting with how a child develops and the importance of the formative years.

It explores the importance of a child’s social and emotional world and the meaning of relationships, environments and experiences.

Yesterday Kate was elegant in an emerald green coat as she launched her Shaping Us campaign in Leeds.

The royal family, 41, opted for a pair of £1,280 brown knee-high boots from Gianvito Rossi and a £950 midi cream dress from Victoria Beckham for her visit to discuss the importance of early childhood – which is the subject of her new campaign movie.

For starters, Kate toured Kirkgate Market – where she politely ignored a wolf whistle from a member of the public – and spoke gleefully to throngs of adoring royal fans who had been waiting to catch a glimpse of her.

She then visited the University of Leeds to attend a sophomore lecture in the ‘Psychological Approaches to Understanding and Supporting Children’s Learning’ module, which examines children’s learning and development, including attachment theory.

Other Stars Featured In The Clip Included Giovanna Fletcher

She also appeared in a new video campaign shared online, wearing a smart green blazer with a black crew neck top underneath.

Earlier this week, Kate made a stylish impression in a red trouser suit when she launched the campaign in London.

Speaking at the event, the 41-year-old said: ‘The campaign is essentially about highlighting the critical importance of early childhood and how it shapes the adults we become.

“At this time we are laying the foundations and building blocks for life. And it’s when we learn to understand ourselves, to understand others, and to understand the world we live in.

A short film was shown during the evening to launch the campaign, highlighting how babies and children develop in response to their earliest experiences.

The multimedia campaign is part of a major campaign by the Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood, set up by the Princess in June 2021, to raise awareness of how our early years shape our lives.

It will take at least five years and has been described by a Kensington Palace spokesman as the Princess’s “life’s work”.

In an oa, the princess spoke passionately about the campaignpen letter published in yesterday’s Mail on Sunday, outlining her plan for ‘Shaping Us’.

She wrote the impassioned plea on her laptop as she prepared for the campaign launch, which kicks off a week-long publicity blitz, including last night’s event at BAFTA.

Reports from the Early Childhood Center have shown that the first five years are more determinative of future well-being than any other stage of development, with our brains growing faster than any other period.

It also hopes to ‘break the loop’ for parents who have experienced a difficult childhood themselves.
