Kate Middleton attended the National Review of the Queen's Scouts at Windsor Castle on Sunday and her burgeoning baby bump wowed onlookers.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who is six months along in her pregnancy, stepped out in a mint green Mulberry coat and nude heels and her baby bump was more prevalent than ever.
Middleton, 31, honored the high achievements of hundreds of Scouts in place of the Queen.
The pregnant Duchess appeared to be happy and relaxed while speaking with some of the 400-plus Queen's Scouts who are said to be from the UK and the Commonwealth. Bear Grylls, who is a Chief Scout, credited Middleton for signing up to volunteer with a Cub Scout group close to her home in North Wales
"It's great that so many adults are joining the Scouts, and I am sure the increase has had much to do with the Duchess of Cambridge becoming a Scout volunteer last year," Grylls told the Mirror UK.
"The Duchess is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting's not just for boys," he added.
Middleton and Prince William, 30, are gearing up for parenthood ahead of the arrival of their first child. The Duke of Cambridge will reportedly capture the live birth on video however the Duchess is said to be wary.
"Deep down she's dreading the idea of a recording being in existence and then getting into the wrong hands but Wills is convinced she'll have a change of heart on the big day," a longtime friend of William allegedly told the Daily Star.
