Kate Middleton has done it again.

The Duchess of Cambridge made her first official appearance of 2015 today as she was the guest of honour at a primary school's art room

The 33-year-old expectant royal visited Barlby Primary School to officially name The Clore Art Room as part of her work as ambassador for The Art Room.

And she opted for a navy smock dress with patterned trim by Madderson London, a first time choice for the Duchess.

She's due to make another engagement tomorrow, celebrating foster carers at The Fostering network.

Meanwhile, Middleton is said to be making the most out of her time with her one and a half year old son Prince George, before they welcome their second child in April.

"She will be mindful that this will be one of the last opportunities for sole 'George time’,” maternity nurse Sarah Dixon, who has worked with friends of the couple before, told People magazine.

"They're making the most of it.”
