  • The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her growing baby bump at the site of Ben Ainslie racing

    Kate Middleton has already proved herself to be a woman of many talents. Whether she’s playing volleyball in Russell & Bromley wedges, or spinning the decks in Alexander McQueen, Kate Middleton manages to master everything she turns her hand to.

    So it was no surprise to see HRH adding her artistic talents to a school art project with Sir Ben Ainslie, while wearing a cream (slightly strange choice of colour, considering the activity) MaxMara coat and sporting an ever growing baby bump.

    The Duchess was in Portsmouth to visit the site of Ben Ainslie Racing and the 1851 Trust headquarters, which encourages young people to get involved in sailing. Kensington Palace gave the people of Portsmouth a heads up on Twitter: ‘Today, Her Royal Highness will find out more about the @americascup bid progress which has been made by @BenAinslieRacin’.

    Kate’s cream MaxMara coat was originally £810 but is now on sale for £648. Teamed with her trusty navy courts, the Royal’s signature style was still firmly in place, even six months into her second pregnancy.

    The Ben Ainslie Racing trust’s building is currently under construction and now includes a mural wall painting by six schools in the local area – and Kate Middleton.
