Liverpool, 14 Feb, 2012

Kate Middleton kicked off her Valentine’s Day (14 February 2012) solo official tour outside of London by arriving at Liverpool to visit a number of charities.

While no doubt the Duchess of Cambridge was on duty sans her husband Prince William, during what is considered the most romantic day of the year for couples, however, her Valentine's Day still had a dash of romanticism attached to it.

Once at Liverpool her first halt was at the dry bar, The Brink, made up of recovering addicts. This is an alcohol-free bar run by the Action on Addiction charity of which Kate Middleton is a patron. As always the statuesque tall brunette was impeccably dressed.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a burgundy colored Hobbs coat flaring downwards and touching her knees with a skinny leather belt and leather details on the sleeves. She had on a black Lara roll-neck merino wool sweater also from Hobbs, within. (Costs £59 and is available in all sizes).

As soon as Kate Middleton arrived at the bar she was presented a cupcake by eight-year-old, Jaqson Johnston-Lynch. The sweet treat was inscribed with a heart that reads "Jaqson loves Kate." Little Jaqson shyly told her that he was going to say 'Happy Valentine's Day, your Royal Highness.’ However added “I'm sorry Prince William can't be here."

After saying those words he presented the Duchess with a bouquet of red roses and a Valentine's Day card which read: 'Dear Kate, Happy Valentine's Day, I love you, from Jaqson.’ The royal brunette's young admirer was chosen to welcome her because his mother Jacquie Johnston-Lynch happens to be the head of service at the affiliated charity, Action on Addiction.

After the official welcome the Duchess was offered a smoothie comprising of almonds, skimmed milk, drop of honey, banana and cream which she sipped daintily, quite enjoying it, after all it was named in her honor, very aptly, as The Duchess.

Later to entertain the VVIP visitor, the Resident choir at The Brink called the Raucous Caucus Recovery Chorus sang a traditional American Indian song called the Wings Of A Dove. One of the members of the group Michael Edwards, speaking about the choice of the song said:

"It's a song about hope and happiness. I got involved in the choir because I'm in recovery from drugs and alcohol." He went on to add that it was a bit scary to sing in front of a royal audience. However, giving full credit to choir he said “but this is what the choir has done for me, to give me the confidence to sing in front of people."

Kate Middleton is also scheduled to visit young patients at the Alder Hey Children's Hospital, later in the day where patients are treated for cancer and burns injuries. Next visit is to the Ronald McDonald House, which offers free stays for families visiting ailing kids.
