Pregnant Kate Middleton pulled off two outfits in one day – one expertly hid her baby bump while the other gloriously displayed it!
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge joined her husband, Prince William for a series of public appearances, after suffering from acute morning sickness prevented her from doing so. The two visited the Jaguar Land Rover’s Solihull manufacturing plant in Birmingham, England. Kate and William met with the stand before buckling up and having a go at an off-roading drive experience. The Duke and Duchess completed the adventurous exercise, each taking a turn behind the wheel.
Kate was clad in a loose black peacoat and accessorized the look with knee-high boots. This outfit expertly hid the Duchess’ baby bump, however, her second outfit of the day, did exactly the opposite.
Hours after their off-roading experience, the Duchess opted for a wardrobe change. The 35-year-old royal hit the soccer field at Aston Villa Football Club for a meeting of the royals’ Coach Core mentoring program, in a fitted black ensemble. Kate accessorized her black skinny jeans and sweater with a bold red jacket, showing off her baby bump underneath.
The royal couple is expecting their 3rd child in April. They are already parents to 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte.
Today The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were visiting Birmingham. Their first visit was to the @landrover Solihull Manufacturing Plant where they met some of the staff and apprentices at the state-of-art production facilities. 8,000 cars are produced here each week, and the plant employs over 10,000 people. Their Royal Highnesses spent time with Mountain Rescue Volunteers, who are trained to drive the cars in steep terrain. Later, children from Top Cliffe School showed The Duke and Duchess their model race car, which won the Jaguar Primary School challenge.
The Duke and Duchess then visited @avfcofficial to drop in on a Coach Core training session happening there. The Royal Foundation, of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, created Coach Core back in 2012 after the London Olympics showed the transformative effect that sport can have on people and their communities. The Programme now runs across the country giving 16-24 year olds the chance to become the next generation of inspirational coaches.
Today The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were in Birmingham today, where they visited the Jaguar Land Rover's Solihull Manufacturing Plant, dropped in on a Coach Core training session at @avfcofficial and then toured a family-owned whistle factory – where whistles have been produced since the 1870s. Find out more about their day on @KensingtonRoyal.
In their final visit of the day, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a Whistle-Stop tour of Acme Whistles. Since 1870, this family-owned business has developed and patented over 40 whistle designs and exports to 119 countries worldwide. The Duke and Duchess saw how each of the 110,000 whistles are produced here weekly. Acme Whistles are some of the most famous in the world – they were used on board The Titanic and today by @ metpolice_uk and in sporting events worldwide.
