What is Duchess Kate’s secret?! With Prince William at her side, Kate Middleton greeted staff at volunteers at Kensington Palace in London on Thursday, Nov. 7 for London Poppy Day. Befitting the day’s “poppy” theme, the new mum, 31, wore a long red coat that was belted at the waist and emphasized her svelte, slim frame — which appears to be more or less back to its pre-baby shape less than four months after Middleton gave birth to son Prince George.
