Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William announced they were expecting their third child earlier this month, the mother-of-two has been on bed rest while she battles severe morning sickness.
But royal fans will be delighted to hear that Duchess Kate is expected to be well enough to make her first public appearance since her pregnancy news next month.

News of Kate's first public appearance also comes days after her husband hinted we'd be expecting baby number three sooner than we previously thought.
Kensington Palace confirmed the news Kate and William were expecting their third child earlier this month, adding that "the Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."
The big question on our minds is what will she wear for her first public appearance since announcing she was pregnant.
