Yesterday was a busy day for the Duchess of Cambridge. The royal, who is currently pregnant with her third child, visited a hospital and then the London headquarters of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).

Whilst visiting the RCOG, of which she had just been named a patron, Catherine was reunited with Professor Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent, who is said to have been present at Princess Charlotte's birth.

Wearing a blue Jenny Packham outfit, the 36-year-old also visited a leading London hospital to launch the Nursing Now global campaign.

The campaign's aim is to raise the status and profile of nurses, and the duchess has a personal connection to its aims, telling the audience, "This campaign means a lot to me personally. My great-grandmother and grandmother were both volunteer nurses. They would have learned first-hand from working with the Voluntary Aid Detachment and the Red Cross about the care and compassion that sometimes only nurses can provide."

Despite the serious and important nature of the visit, it was not without laughs. Before officially launching the project, Catherine met with parents Lauren Kedwell and Jamie Parsons. Their youngest daughter, 10-month old Amara, is being treated in a nurse-led ward for her debilitating disability that means she's never been home.

The couple are said to have congratulated the royal on her third pregnancy saying, "Congratulations, best of luck with the third one," to which the Duchess reportedly joked, "William's in denial."

Kate is said to have cooed and made silly noises with Amara while talking to her parents about the difficulty of her condition."She was just very understanding," Jamie Parsons said of the interaction. "But also you could tell that she did have empathy and could see it was just a scenario that was challenging for us."
