She’s weeks away from giving birth to her third child, but the Duchess of Cambridge is still keeping the fashion stakes high.
The royal, 36, stepped out in skinny jeans this morning, teamed with a cream coat by Goat which she wore prior to her pregnancy and a non-maternity top from Hobbs, for a day of engagements celebrating the Commonwealth with Prince William.
It’s Kate’s last day of official duties before giving birth to her third child next month.
William and his wife are beginning their day at the Olympic Park’s Copper Box arena in Stratford, East London for an event staged by SportsAid, a national charity helping the next generation of Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth champions.
The couple received a warm welcome from pupils from the Chobham Academy, who were bearing flags from Commonwealth nations.

The charity also helps develop other vital skills for professional athletes by providing media training, nutritional advice and performance lifestyle guidance.
