As Kate Middleton learned early Tuesday morning, absence makes the heart grow fonder!
Though they're spending their first Valentine's Day as a married couple apart — Prince William began his six-week tour of duty in The Falklands on February 1 — the ever-romantic search-and-rescue pilot, 29, didn't forget to send his bride some love.
"Catherine had a lovely card and bouquet in the morning," a source tells Us Weekly.
William wasn't the only boy to make Middleton feel like a princess: 8-year-old Jaqson Johnston-Lynch presented her with a bouquet of red roses when Middleton visited The Brink, an alcohol-free bar linked to Action on Addiction, later that day.
"Happy Valentine's Day, your Royal Highness," said Johnston-Lynch, whose mother works for the charity. "I'm sorry Prince William can't be here."
"She misses William. It's difficult for any officer's wife to have her husband away on duty," a source close to Middleton recently told Us. "Catherine knows time will fly if she just gets on with things."
