An expectant Kate Middleton recycled one of her favorite outfits when she arrived at the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, England, on Tuesday (March 5).
Sporting the same Hobbs “Celeste” coat she donned during a public appearance in Liverpool in February 2012, the Duchess of Cambridge, 31, showed her barely there baby bump in a Great Plains dress and black heels.
Due to the heavy fog, the mom-to-be traveled via helicopter instead of by train.
“There a number of factors taken into consideration when it comes to royal engagements,” St. James’ Palace explained. “It depends on what the member of the royal family is doing before or after and how long the journey takes. It was decided that the most suitable way to travel to Grimsby was to come by helicopter.”
After receiving a bouquet of flowers from a 3-year-old admirer, Kate chatted with onlookers, including 42-year-old Bobbie Brown. “I asked her if [the baby] has been moving or kicking,” Brown said. “She said: ‘Yes, it is. Very much so.'”
Last month, Kate debuted her tiny belly in a gray Max Mara wrap dress.
In a recent interview, Kate’s FIL, Prince Charles, said he’s excited to become a grandfather.
“It’s a lovely thought and I look forward enormously to that relationship,” Charles said.
