The project has been called Shaping Us to highlight the significance of the formative years of a child’s life.
In a speech made on Monday night, the Princess 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.”
Royal fans were quick to praise Princess Kate for the initiative – and they couldn’t get enough of her red-hot trouser suit!
“Lady in Red!” one remarked, while a second noted: “Absolutely stunning – that suit!!!!” “Breathtakingly beautiful,” shared a third, and a fourth stated: “Elegant and kind – the perfect princess. And I love that suit!!!”
A 90-second Claymation film has also been released, depicting how the development of a young girl from the age of zero to five is shaped by interactions and her environment and will be shown in cinemas from Friday.
