Kate Middleton joined other members of Britain's Royal family today to honour the war dead on Remembrance Sunday.

Kate, who is expecting her third child, joined Queen Elizabeth at the Foreign Office balconies of the Whitehall memorial in London.

The mother-of-two wore a black coat and matching hat, as she bowed her head during a two-minute silence at 11am.

Princes William and Harry joined their father Charles, and others, in laying wreaths to remember the war dead.

Kate has been stepping back into the limelight after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness.

She is in her second trimester, with the royal baby due in April.

Last night, she attended the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, in London, siimilarly attired in black.

Earlier this week, Kate made another public appearance where she spoke about taking Prince George to school and the importance of supporting young children.
