Kate Middleton Shows Off Her Burgeoning Baby Bump in Burgundy Sheath Dress

The school year got off to a bumpy start for the Duchess of Cambridge thanks to yet another battle with hyperemesis gravardium, but a few more months into her third pregnancy and Kate Middleton is feeling a lot better. So much better in fact, she's been able to take Prince George to school.

The Duchess revealed the news while speaking at the annual School Leaders Forum hosted by Place2Be in London Wednesday morning. Despite the early wake up call for the event, the Duchess of Cambridge looked positively radiant in a plum wool tunic dress by Goat with a high neckline embellished with shiny pewter buttons.

"As a mother, just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child," she told the crowd, per People. "Whether we are school leavers, teachers, support staff or parents we are all in this together."

Middleton, 35, is a longtime patron of Place2Be, an organization that provides mental health support to children in UK schools. She continued: "Collaborating with experts like yourselves, we're looking at providing easy access to information and practical tools to support teachers, parents and children feel comfortable talking about their mental health. We are all here today because we share the belief that every child deserves the chance to fulfill their potential."
