The Duchess of Cambridge, who is seven months pregnant with her third baby, wore a dark green Dolce and Gabbana coat for the occasion, paired with suede heels and a matching clutch. It’s the second time in a week Middleton has stepped out in the color; her hunter green Jenny Packham gown at the Baftas bucked the event’s unofficial all-black dress code.
The royal was pictured speaking to the crowds of people who lined the streets to meet her, including two children dressed as police officers.
She also received a bunch of blowers from a delighted young fan.
Prince William was pictured chatting to a 101-year-old resident, Jane, who came to welcome the couple to the city.
The royals visited The Fire Station, a new cultural hub in Sunderland.
They were treated to music, drama, and dance performances from local children during their trip to experience the city’s “vibrant arts scene and engineering talent.”
