The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge undertook a set of Commonwealth-themed engagements today in London. This was Kate's last official outing before she begins maternity leave ahead of the arrival of Baby Cambridge #3.
Kate and William's first stop today was at the Copper Box in London's Olympic Park for a SportsAid event, a charity which helps aspiring young athletes.
The couple then visited St Luke's Community centre to see preparations for a Commonwealth Big Lunch.
Kate ditched her usual coat and dress combination today in favour of a smart-casual look, a fitting choice for the day's informal activities. She wore her Goat 'Redgrave' coat atop a new floral patterned blouse by Hobbs. It is the 'Rosie' blouse (£79.00) currently on sale at the following retailers:
Hobbs (£49.00) | House of Fraser (£44.10) | Debenham (£44.10) | John Lewis (£49.00)
It's been suggested that Kate's black jeggings are the Seraphine Slim Leg Black Maternity Jeans (£49). We are waiting on confirmation.
Kate carried her beloved Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch which she complemented with her Stuart Weitzman 'Power' Pumps.
She also wore her trusty Cartier Ballon Bleu Watch.
The Duchess finished the look with her classic Annoushka Pearl and Kiki Diamond Hoop Earrings.
The next time we see Kate she will have a new baby in her arms! It's still unknown if she will have a home birth or return to the Lindo Wing. Regardless of what the Duke & Duchess decide, I wish them all the best for the safe arrival of their new prince or princess!

Today The Duchess of Cambridge and The Royal Foundation hosted a symposium on early intervention, to provide social and emotional support for children in their early years.
The event brought together academics, researchers, practitioners, educators and charities to discuss perinatal, maternal and infant mental health; parenting support; and resources for schools.
Kate looked the picture of Springtime perfection in a bespoke green coat with a bow detail at the collar by Jenny Packham, worn over a mint dress.
She teamed it with her Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 85' Praline Suede Pumps and Loeffler Randall Tab Blush Lizard-Effect Leather Clutch.
Kate accessorized with her seldom worn Kiki Green Amethyst Cushion & Diamond Earrings. She has only worn them on two other occasions back in early 2014.
We will see the Duchess again tomorrow when she joins Prince William for events celebrating the Commonwealth.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Irish Guards at Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow today for the annual St. Patrick's Day parade.
Kate presented shamrocks to members of the regiment.
The Duchess also gave one to the Irish Guards mascot, Domhnall - an Irish wolfhound.
Kate was on point in her bespoke green Catherine Walker coat which she debuted in Stockholm, Sweden earlier this year.
Once again, she paired it with her Troy London faux-fur collar (£65) and cuffs (£40).
Kate restyled the look from Stockholm with her beautiful Gina Foster 'Meribel' felt beret hat (£535), which she also wore to the 2014 parade.
She carried her Mulberry 'Bayswater' clutch, and on her feet she wore her trusty Tod's block heel suede pumps. The Duchess kept her hands warm with her Cornelia James 'Alice' gloves (£70).
Kate wore her dazzling Kiki McDonough 'Special Edition' Green Tourmaline, Green Amethyst and Diamond Earrings. The look wouldn't be complete without the gold three-leaf shamrock brooch, pinned just above her sprig of shamrock. The piece belongs to the Irish Guards who loan it to Kate for the occasion.
And finally, I closer look at Kate's elegant up-do.
Green has been the colour of choice for Kate for this traditional event, except for when she surprised us in 2015 by wearing a chestnut brown ensemble. You may recall that the Duchess intentionally missed the 2016 parade which caused backlash from the public and the media.

The Duchess of Cambridge today met with Judy Murray, Tim Henman, and representatives from British Tennis, Wimbledon, and Coach Core to discuss children's tennis initiatives in the UK and access to the sport at the grassroots level.
Kate wore her nude GOAT 'Redgrave' coat for today’s discussion at Kensington Palace.
She debuted it during her first pregnancy in 2013 for an engagement with Prince William at Child Bereavement UK, and repeated the look last November at the Hornsey Road Children's Centre.
Unfortunately there are no other photos from this engagement so we are unable to provide any further outfit details.
