Pregnant Kate Middleton looks beautiful in blue for children's charity visit
Kate Middleton is showing her maternal side as she prepares for two children's charity appearances today.
The Duchess of Cambridge (33) is seven months pregnant with her second child with Prince William and is due to give birth in April.
But she plans on making official royal appearances until closer to her due date as she has two engagements today.
Earlier this morning, she visited the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent, a pottery favtory which has a new range of mugs designed for EACH (East Angelica Children's Hospices), today focusing on raising funds for a local children's hospice, The Nook.
The expectant royal has been a patron with the organisation for more than two years.
As usual, she turned heads in a blue dress coat, with suede accessories, wearing her hair in its trademark bouncy curls.
Later today, the Duchess will travel to Action for Children's Cape Hill Children's Centre in Smethwick, West Midlands, an organisation working to help vulnerable children and adults.
She will take part in a private discussion with families using its services.
