The Duchess of Cambridge is keeping busy, even into the final months of her pregnancy. This morning marked Kate's final public engagements before maternity leave, and she packed multiple appearances into the day.

First, she and Prince William visited the Copper Box arena in London to check out SportsAid, which the Palace describes as "the only national charity of its kind–helping young British sportsmen & women who are aspiring to be the country's next Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth & World Champions."


Later in the day, she and William headed to St Luke's Community Centre, where they helped prepare for The Big Lunch Project, a movement centered around food and bringing people together "to celebrate community and build connections across the Commonwealth."

Kensington Palace has confirmed these will be the Duchess's final engagements before she gives birth, and it has also shared that she is due sometime in April.


According to ABC news, Duchess Kate's leave will last about six months, but that doesn't mean the public won't still see her from time to time.

While the Duchess will not attend official engagements as a working royal until the fall, she is expected to be seen at other royal events over the summer, some of which will include Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19, Trooping the Colour on June 9, and the child's christening.
