Hours after quietly ringing in her 36th birthday, a glowing Kate Middleton was back to her royal duties on Wednesday, promoting mental health awareness at a West London school. Keeping her burgeoning baby bump under wraps in a royal blue Hobbs peacoat over a Seraphine maternity dress, the Duchess of Cambridge began her first official royal engagement of the year with her best sartorial foot forward. Middleton complemented the elegant pieces with a pair of suede Jimmy Choo pumps and her signature glossy waves.
