Princess Kate posted a baby photo of herself on Instagram to support early childhood education.

Carole Middleton, her mother, took the photograph.

The post is part of the Shaping Us initiative, which seeks to raise awareness about the influence of childhood on adulthood.

The initiative promotes the sharing of childhood images and the discussion of early childhood memories.

In 2021, Kate established the Centre for Early Childhood to promote the importance of the first five years of life.

She gave a significant London lecture and released a clay animation short to encourage early childhood.

Kate went to Leeds Kirkgate Market to talk about the early years with vendors and members of the public.

To promote the campaign, Kate appeared in a video with 4- and 5-year-old students.

The campaign has the backing of Royal Foundation "champions" such as Giovanna Fletcher and Zara McDermott.
