Kate Middleton is making the most of her solo time with Prince George before giving birth this weekend.

The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to welcome her second child with Prince William on Saturday at the Lindo Wing in St Mary's Hospital.

The 32-year-old is currently on her royal maternity leave, taking a break from official engagements in favour of spending time with her family before the new arrival.

But Middleton isn't putting her feet up, rather spending time with her 20-month-old son, the heir to the British throne.

The pair were spotted enjoying a mother/son day out at Bucklebury Farm, a farm park in Berkshire.

"George was in a cute jacket and was having the time of his life, if those giggles were anything to go by," a source exclusively told Us Weekly.

"What amazed me was how slim Kate looked from the back! If tradition is right, that means she must be having a boy."

"Kate has come here with George a few times in the past. They really like it here. George loves to meet other children and also pet the animals. He's an adorable little boy."

Kate is currently residing at their Kensington Palace apartment, which is a closer proximity to the hospital, where she is scheduled to give birth on Saturday, while her husband is also diving his time between the royal residence and Norfolk.

Her mother Carole has been by her side throughout her second pregnancy and will be moving into her home for at least one month in order to help her daughter balance two babies.

"She will be there for the first month to help out," the insider added. "Kate feels like she owes so much to her mom for helping out during George’s birth and she couldn’t do it again without her. Nothing feels better than having your mom around during a time like this."
