Pregnant Kate Middleton has made her first public appearance since announcing she is expecting for the second time.

After confirming last month that there is a second Royal baby on the way, the Duchess of Cambridge has kept a low profile due to severe morning sickness.

But, feeling better, earlier today Kate cut a glamorous figure as she stepped out for her first public engagement since announcing her exciting news.

Joining Prince William, Kate was at her husband's side as they welcomed the President of Singapore TonyTan to the UK for his four-day visit.

As per, the Duchess didn't disappoint with her impeccable style and wore an elegant Alexander McQueen dress with a matching grey fascinator.

And is that a little baby bump we can spot?!

Kate's appearance with the Royal family at Buckingham Palace today comes after her baby's due date was finally revealed.

In a short statement released by Kensington Palace, it was confirmed that Kate and Wills are expecting to welcome their new arrival in April next year.

Today's occasion marked Kate's first public engagement since announcing she and William were expecting their second child together in September.

Shortly after revealing their baby news, Kate was forced to pull out of a number of public engagements due to falling ill with hyperemesis gravidarum - severe morning sickness.

The mum-of-one was hospitalised with the illness during her first pregnancy with Prince George and, suffering again this time round, Kate has been being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.

Excited by a new addition to the family, the Queen and the rest of royal family are said to be delighted by William and Kate's baby news and Prince Charles has reportedly said he hopes the couple's baby will be a girl.

While attending a public event, Charles was heard saying: "It's wonderful to be a grandfather again. I'm looking forward to it... but I hope it will be a girl this time!"
