The Royal baby bump watch continues. The Duchess of Cambridge was out in a rather springy look yesterday, as she attended the National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle. A volunteer with the Scouts Association since January of last year, Kate’s visit was marked, as usual, by a presentation of a floral bouquet, as she and the rest of the crowd watched the annual National Scout Service and Parade which featured the Scouts Band and the Irish Guards playing kid-friendly songs like “New York” and “Star Wars.”

Chief Scout Bear Grylls (if you’ve ever seen Man vs. Wild, you’ll know he’s got the scout chops) was on hand to greet Kate and told reporters that she “is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting’s not just for boys.”

Later, Kate joined the Royal Family for for a tea service marking Queen Elizabeth II’s 87th birthday at Windsor Castle. While we weren’t privy to the celebrations (shocking?), we can only imagine that it was quite a happy day.

While her 6-months pregnant belly is rapidly growing, the Duchess is still able to hold fast to her penchant for A-line coats, and yesterday’s mint Mulberry cotton tweed coat is a favourite new addition to her collection. (Unsurprisingly, it’s already sold out on Mulberry’s website.) To accessorize, Kate wore one of our favourite hats—the Whiteley cappuccino fascinator she previously wore to the Epsom Derby and a wedding last year. She also wore her L.K Bennett Sledge pumps in nude patent, a new L.K. Bennett patent rolled clutch à la Céline’s Spring 2013 collection and her green amethyst Kiki McDonough earrings.

With a busy week of public engagements ahead, we’ll see Kate out and about once again tomorrow, as she visits the The Willows Primary School in Manchester to launch a counseling program for one of her new patronages, Place2Be.
