Pregnant Duchess of Cambridge visits Ben Ainslie Racing

The Duchess of Cambridge wrapped up warm in a gorgeous cream coat for her visit to the headquarters of the 1851 Trust in Portsmouth.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning today as she visited Portsmouth to see the progress on the new home of Ben Ainslie Racing and the 1851 Trust. 

Catherine, Royal Patron of the 1851 Trust, together with Olympic sailor Ben Ainslie, met with local children and adults involved with the Trust, which encourages youngsters to get involved with sailing and become the next generation of sailors. 

The Trust’s new building features a maritime-themed mural painted by children from local schools, and now also features brush-strokes from the Duchess. Luckily Catherine didn’t get any paint on the beautiful cream wool coat she was wearing over her growing bump. 

The Duchess is now nearly seven months pregnant, and we can’t wait to meet the newest member of the Royal Family.
