Duchess Kate in Valentine’s Day visit to Liverpool

LONDON (AP) — The former Kate Middleton is spending her first Valentine’s Day as a married woman nearly 8,000 miles (13,000 kilometers) away from her husband.

The Duchess of Cambridge is carrying out a solo visit to the English port city of Liverpool to visit a charity devoted to helping recovering addicts. Her husband Prince William is currently deployed as a helicopter search-and-rescue pilot in the remote Falkland Islands.

But just because Kate was short a prince doesn’t mean she was short a valentine.

Kate got a card and a bouquet of red roses from 8-year-old Jaqson Johnston-Lynch, whose mother works at the charity.

Jaqson told reporters he would tell Kate: "Happy Valentine’s Day, your Royal Highness. I’m sorry Prince William can’t be here."
