Kate, 32, is expecting her second child with husband Prince William in April and showed off her blooming tummy at the Place2Be Wellbeing Schools Awards Reception last night.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a black spotty peplum top from Hobbs for the evening and, thanks to it's belt, it skimmed her bump perfectly. Kate teamed her high street buy with a Jenny Packham skirt and a simple pair of black courts.
The charity event was held at Kensington Palace in London and Kate looked simply glowing as she chatted to children and fellow adult attendees.
During the evening, Kate also presented the Child Champion Award to 11-year-old Bailey Dunne, from Highfield Community Primary School in Sunderland.
In a foreword prior to the event, Kate wrote: "The commitment, dedication and hard work that is going in across the schools involved with Place2Be is truly humbling, and to recognise that feels incredibly important."
In September, Kate and Prince William confirmed their pregnancy news. Unfortunately, they decided to announce it earlier than they would have liked as Kate was again suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum - severe morning sickness.
As a result, Kate was forced to pull out of several engagements, including a pre-arranged solo visit to Malta.
Last month, however, Kate felt well enough to return to the spotlight and was pictured for the first time since announcing her pregnancy while welcoming the President of Singapore TonyTan to the UK.
In December, fans will catch a glimpse of Kate and William on ITV when the channel airs this year's Royal Variety Performance.
The show took place at the London Palladium last week (13 November) and featured performances from Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato and Shirley Bassey. It was hosted by comedian Michael McIntyre.
