Princess Kate was blooming today as she stepped out for her last royal engagement before going on maternity leave for her third child.
Kate, who is due in April, and Prince William visited Copper Box Arena at London’s Olympic Stadium to see the work of Coach Core, a charity affiliated with the Royal Foundation overseen by Kate, William and Prince Harry.
Kate plans to have her baby again at the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, where she gave birth to both George and Charlotte.
The soon-to-be mother of three will take time off for maternity leave.
She is expected to attend Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding on May 19th at Windsor Castle and Trooping the Colour, the Queen’s official birthday celebration, in June.
However, if her pregnancy is delayed and she gives birth in May, Kensington Palace may re-evaluate her schedule.
William and Kate have spoken of the support they receive from family members and their nanny, Maria Theresa Borrallo, in raising two children while juggling royal obligations and charitable work. There is speculation they may hire a second nanny to help with the addition to their growing family.
Kate is expected to return to royal duties after about six months, as she did after her last pregnancy.
William is set to tour Israel and the Palestinian territories this summer, but Kate will not accompany him. When she returns to work, Kate will be helping Markle as she joins the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Kate's pregnancy style
Kate, who wore a pair of skinny jeans and stylish white coat today, has been busy with multiple engagements over the past few weeks.
She spoke Wednesday about the importance of early intervention for children who may be trying to cope with mental health issues and the challenges of growing up. Kate launched a major new initiative, an early years steering group, that will look at ways of improving how society supports children so they have the resilience to cope with life’s pressures when adults.
