PRINCESS Kate had a very royal response to being wolf-whistled during an event to launch her 'life's work' early-years campaign.
The Princess politely ignored a wolf whistle from a member of the public and waved to crowds of adoring royal fans who had waited to see her.
The mother-of-three, 41, looked elegant in a bespoke Alexander McQueen emerald coat and a pair of £1,280 brown knee high boots by Gianvito Rossi and a cream dress as she visited Leeds today.
The Princess of Wales visited Kirkgate Market to launch the 'Shaping Us' campaign to raise the profile of the early years development of children.
The event involved the Princess of Wales meeting with members of the public and stall holders to talk about the project.
Kate also joined a discussion with market sellers and local people about their experiences of early childhood, their reflections on the Shaping Us film that will be shown in cinemas from Friday.

The 90-second film, first screened at a Shaping Us event attended by the Princess and Princess of Wales on Monday night, depicts how the development of a young girl from the age of zero to five is shaped.

In a video message released to highlight the project, the princess said: "Our early childhood, the time from pregnancy to the age of five, fundamentally shapes the rest of our lives.
"But as a society, we currently spend much more of our time and energy on later life.
