"It is therefore vital that we nurture children through this crucial, early period", she said.

Kate Middleton visits the Royal Society of Medicine.

Both Middleton's vibrant green coat and slightly darker shift dress were made by Jenny Packham, her noted favorite designer, and her heels were from Jimmy Choo, Yahoo Style reports. Attending her final public outing before settling down to give birth, Middleton and Prince William met with supporters in London for a Commonwealth Games event on Thursday.

Kate Middleton, 36, looked radiant as she stepped out in London today with husband Prince William, 35, for a series of engagements to celebrate the Commonwealth.

The duchess's due date has not been released but it is thought the Cambridges' baby is expected a few days after the Queen's birthday, April 21.

Kate, who has claimed to be less "sporty" since having babies but often proves herself wrong, appeared to get into the spirit of the competition with her team.

The loved-up couple, who married in 2011 in a lavish Westminster Abbey wedding, are already parents to four-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.

And Prince William showed off his sporting prowess - managing to score a goal while trying out wheelchair basketball with some of the athletes hoping to compete in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. The charity also provides athletes with media training, nutritional advice and performance lifestyle guidance.

After that, the couple headed out to St. Luke's Community Centre to help prepare for the Commonwealth Big Lunch.

Big Lunches are happening all over the Commonwealth between now and 22 April and are an opportunity for neighbours and communities to get together for a sit down meal.
