Princess Kate Middleton hosted the inaugural meeting of her new Business Taskforce for Early Childhood.

The Taskforce is run by business and will support the prioritization and support of children in their earliest years.

The Taskforce will engage and support the business sector on the issue of early childhood.

The Taskforce will advise the corporate community on how to nurture children and caregivers.

The creation of the Taskforce follows the launch of Shaping Us, a campaign led by the Princess.

Shaping Us aims to transform the issue of early childhood into a strategically important topic.

The campaign also highlights the role of society in building a nurturing world for children and their caregivers.

The Taskforce will play an essential role in the Princess's work to transform early childhood support.

The meeting was held at NatWest’s headquarters in the City of London.
