Prince William and Kate Middleton met crowds of well-wishers in Sunderland, England today as they visited a new music and arts hub in the city.

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.”


The couple are expecting their third child, a younger sibling for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in April. Her due date is estimated to be just a few weeks after the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
