Sweet moment Kate Middleton calms a man’s nerves when he asks her for a selfie in Leeds
This is the sweet moment the Princess of Wales calmed a man’s nerves when he asked her for a selfie during her visit to Leeds this morning.
Kate, 41, dressed in a tailored emerald green Alexander McQueen coat, toured Leeds Kirkgate Market to talk about the importance of early childhood – which is the subject of her new Shaping Us campaign.
While visiting the market, a royal fan who says he’s “a bit autistic” asked the mother-of-three to pose for a picture with him – and admitted he was “just really nervous”.
Seemingly eager to calm the man’s nerves, Kate replied: “Please don’t worry. It’s okay. We’re all getting nervous.’

In a clip of the moment shared on Twitter, the princess can be heard saying “well done” after the royal enthusiast successfully snapped the picture of them posing together.
At the beginning of the footage, Kate is seen walking around market as the unidentified man in the crowd shouts, “Can I take a selfie?”.
As the king approaches him, he admits, “I’m sorry…I’m just really nervous,” to which Kate replies, “Please don’t worry. It’s okay. We’re all getting nervous.’
For today’s outing, Kate opted for a pair of £1,280 brown Gianvito Rossi knee-high boots and a cream dress.

In 2012, the City of Leeds launched Child Friendly Leeds with the belief that by investing in and supporting children, young people and their families, the whole city will reap immediate and longer term social and economic benefits.
Leeds City Council, which is working with partners to implement enrichment schemes to improve outcomes, has seen a safe reduction in the number of young people being cared for, more teenagers going through education, employment and training, and better school attendance.
Leeds Kirkgate Market opened in 1857 and is home to hundreds of local independent businesses covering everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, butchers and fishmongers to a community library, cookery school and volunteer centre.
During last night’s BAFTA screening, the Princess of Wales described the Shaping Us program as her “life’s work”.

Earlier today, the princess appeared in a new video shared on her official social media pages, wearing a smart green blazer with a black scoop neck top underneath.
She said: “Our early childhood, the time from pregnancy to the age of five, fundamentally shapes our further life.
“But as a society, we’re currently focusing a lot more time and energy on later life.”
Explaining that she is now launching the Shaping Us campaign, Kate added: “To raise awareness of the life-changing impact we can have when we build a supportive, nurturing world around children and those who care for them To take care of.
“By focusing our collective time, energy and resources on these most preventative years, we can make a huge difference in the physical and mental health and happiness of generations to come.
In the clip, the queen swept her hair into a bouncy blow-dry style and tucked part of it behind her shoulder.
Presenting the film at a BAFTA screening last night, the princess said: “The campaign is essentially about spotlighting the critical importance of early childhood and how it shapes the adults we become.
“It is during this time that we lay the foundations and building blocks for life. And it’s when we learn to understand ourselves, understand others, and understand the world we live in.
“That’s why it’s important not only to understand the unique significance of our earliest years, but also to know what we can all do to raise future generations of happy, healthy adults.”
