Kate Middleton joined Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip today (Wednesday) for Her Majesty's return to royal duties. During their visit to the historic Baker Street Tube Station, the pregnant duchess was presented with a "Baby on Board" pin by the staff of the London Underground. "I'll make sure I wear it at home," the Telegraph reports Kate as saying as she accepted the button.
The Duchess of Cambridge has said she misses riding the Tube and commented that she recognized the pins from her days taking the train. "Kate told me 'Oh yes I've seen this before.' She used to travel the Tube so she probably saw them then," London Underground's chief operating officer Howard Collins said. He also joked they save men the embarrassment of asking a woman if she's pregnant.
A five months pregnant Kate wore a teal coat by designer Malene Birger, a black hat and black heels. The royal baby bump wasn't quite as obvious as it was in her monochrome outfit from Tuesday's appearance at the Child Bereavement UK offices or Sunday's St. Patrick's Day Parade. She did, however, opt to skip the belt, which has become a wardrobe staple for her.
Today's official visit to Baker Street Underground Station marked the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.
