Kensington Palace released new photos of the Duchess of Cambridge, taken during one of the two days she spent at London's Kingston Hospital Maternity Unit in late November.
Along with the photos, The Duchess penned an open letter to midwives across the UK ahead of 2020’s International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.
In the photos Kate wore a new patterned dress from the Micheal Kors diffusion line.
The MICHAEL Michael Kors Mod Foulard Print Crepe Dress (US$175) is made from 100% polyester and features a v-neck, an all-over geometric print, a belted waist, long sleeves, a midi-length and a straight hem.
The dress has sold out but the Mod Foulard print can be found on a number of garments from the brand which are currently available.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham and started their day by attending the traditional Christmas service at St. Mary Magadelene's Church.
This year they were joined by Prince George and Princess Charlotte for the first time for the walk to the church on the Queen's estate.
Following the yuletide service, the Cambridges chatted with well-wishers who had gathered outside the church to catch a glimpse of the royal family.
The Duchess rugged up in a mocha coatdress by Catherine Walker.
The custom piece appears to be based on the designer's 'Larrisa' style. The tailored mohair coat has a distinctly wintry Russian aesthetic with a sumptuous faux fur collar and cuffs. Kate opted to continue the mohair fabric for the body of the coat.
She offset the neutral tone with festive forest green accessories. Kate brought back the Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Co. hat, first worn on Christmas Day 2015 and again for St. Patrick's Day 2017.
She carried her Emmy London 'Natasha' Clutch in 'Greenery' suede and debuted a pair of the brand's 'Josie' pumps (£330) in a matching hue.
Under the coat, Kate wore her Michael Kors Peacock Print Shirt Dress.
The Duchess finished the ensemble with her KIKI Candy Mini Green Amethyst & Diamond Earrings.
The 2019 Cambridge Christmas card is featured on the cover of the Daily Mail. It shows The Duke and Duchess posing on a vintage motorbike with Louis in William's lap and George and Charlotte perched on the sidecar.
Kate wore a printed dress from Boden. It's the brand's 'Aurora' Midi Wrap Dress in a Heron Blue Daisy Field print (£110). This lightweight dress has a floaty tiered skirt, three-quarter-length sleeves, tie waist, and crinkle viscose fabric.
I will update the post if the card is officially released by the Palace and details about the location and photographer are revealed.
The Cambridges gathered with extended Royal family members today for the Queen's annual pre-Christmas luncheon at Buckingham Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge along with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were spotted en route to the Palace with Kate behind the wheel.
Prince William and Prince George arrived in a separate car.
The Duchess looked festive in a red tartan piece by Emilia Wickstead. From what we can see, it looks like it's based on the designer's 'Anni' Tartan Georgette Midi Dress (£2,730).
Kate could be wearing a blouse version of the dress because if you recall she owns the 'Pris' skirt rendered in the same pattern. It's possible she could be wearing separates, but she may have also bought the dress! We won't know unless we see the outfit in its entirety.

The Cambridges all left the party in the one car.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Diplomatic Reception this evening.
Hosted by The Queen at Buckingham Palace, the annual white-tie soirée is one of the most formal events on the royal calendar.
Over 1,000 people from around 130 countries, including members of the British government and past Prime Ministers attend the gathering.
Kate looked every inch the princess in a new Alexander McQueen gown.
The custom velvet dress appears to be based on the designer's ready-to-wear Bejeweled Long Sleeve Illusion Gown (US$7,290) featuring the same curved v-neckline and peaked shoulders. Kate's gown does not have the lace insets or the bejeweled back.
The Duchess donned her 'go-to' diadem - the Queen Mary Lover's Knot tiara.
In addition to the tiara, Kate also loaned The Queen's Nizam of Hyderabad necklace. We first saw her wear the piece to the 2014 Portrait Gala.
Kate also accessorized with 'new' diamond chandelier earrings and a matching marquis cluster ring.
The jewels belong to Her Majesty and are part of the Diamond Chandelier Drop Demi-Parure. Below we see the earrings and ring worn by the Queen during a State Visit to Germany in 1992. Their provenance is unknown.
Pinned to Kate's dress was a Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II which she was awarded in 2017 and first seen on the Duchess at the Netherlands state banquet in 2018.
Kate was also decorated with the Royal Victorian Order sash and badge. You may recall The Duchess of Cambridge was appointed Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order on her eighth wedding anniversary this April as recognition of her service to the Sovereign. Kate first wore the order to the United States state banquet in June.
