Crowds cheered and waved flags as the Duchess of Cambridge arrived for a Valentine's Day visit to Liverpool.
The Duchess, making her debut solo regional visit, is spending her first Valentine's Day as a married woman in the city - more than 7,900 miles away from husband William.
She met many people at The Brink, a dry bar run by the Action on Addiction charity.
She even enjoyed the sip of a smoothie named after her.
Kate was then serenaded by the resident choir at The Brink, made up of recovering addicts called the Raucous Caucus Recovery Chorus.
They sung a traditional native American Indian song titled Wings Of A Dove.
The Duchess will also visit the Alder Hey children's hospital.
