Taking to social media, the Strictly presenter shared the sweet photo of herself next to her sister with fans. Captioning the snap, Tess said: "Me aged 4 and 3/4 and my little sister Karen on a walk in the Peak District where we grew up. I feel so grateful now for all those fond early memories of packing up a picnic and going on a walk, it would always feel like a little adventure. Our early childhood is pivotal since it shapes the rest of our lives 💛 Join me in posting your own favourite childhood photo 💫 @princeandprincessofwales @earlychildhood #ShapingUs"

In the photo, Tess and her sister can be seen smiling sweetly with the picturesque backdrop of the Peak District behind them.

While the photo has fans thrilled by how adorable Tess looks, the presenter also shared that the snap was to mark the Princess of Wales' latest campaign: Shaping Us. As part of the project, people are being encouraged to share photos from their early childhood, with Tess choosing to share this lovely throwback.

The Shaping Us project has been launched by the Princess of Wales to focus on just how important early childhood is. Speaking of the new campaign, a statement on Royal UK reads: "Shaping Us is a new long-term campaign from The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, spearheaded by The Princess of Wales, which aims to transform the issue from one of scientific interest to one of the most strategically important topics of our time."

An official statement from the Princess reads: "The way we develop, through our experiences, relationships, and surroundings during our early childhood, fundamentally shapes our whole lives. It affects everything from our ability to form relationships and thrive at work, to our mental and physical well-being as adults and the way we parent our own children.

“These are the most preventative years. By focusing our collective time, energy, and resources to build a supportive, nurturing world around the youngest members of our society and those caring for them, we can make a huge difference to the health and happiness of generations to come.

“All of society has a role to play in this, even if you are not directly involved in a child’s life, because we are all responsible for building a more compassionate world in which our children can grow, learn and live.

"In these difficult times, it is more important than ever to help support parents and caregivers provide loving, safe and secure homes for their babies and young children to thrive.”
