Pregnant Kate Middleton shows off Caribbean tan in white designer coat
The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her Mustique tan - and her growing baby bump - as she met Sir Ben Ainslie in Portsmouth today.
The Duchess, who has just returned from a two-week family holiday on the Caribbean island with the Duke of Cambridge, Prince George and the Middletons, looked suitably bronzed in a cream coloured Max Mara coat.
But it was her noticeably bigger baby bump that was attracting the most attention. The Duchess is due to give birth in April to a brother or sister for Prince George.
She is helping to promote Sir Ben's attempts to get young people involved in sailing and the marine industry.
Sir Ben's Portsmouth-based Ben Ainslie Racing is aiming to win the America's Cup for Britain for the first time, and his 1851 Trust works with under-25s to inspire them to take to the sea.
The Duchess, who is Royal Patron of the 1851 Trust - named after the year the America's Cup left Britain, never to return - is making her first visit to its headquarters.
She is also attending a reception at the port's Spinnaker Tower landmark to meet people involved in the Ben Ainslie Racing project and to view exhibits destined for a visitor centre being built by the Trust which will open in July.
It is billed as an "interactive showcase for the sport of sailing, sustainability and innovation".
Sir Ben, 38, is the most successful sailor in Olympic history, winning medals at five consecutive Games from 1996 to 2012, including gold at the last four.
In 2013 he pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in sport, when he was hired by Oracle Team USA as a tactician with the team trailing 8-1 to Team New Zealand.
