Kate the Great is back!

Pregnant Kate Middleton bundled up her baby bump in an adorably classic ensemble for three back-to-back stops in the London neighborhood of Kensington on Monday, Jan. 19. And by the end of the day, the Duchess of Cambridge also revealed that she can feel her baby kicking!

First, Middleton, 33, headed to a coffee meeting with Family Friends, a volunteer organization that helps befriend and mentor families in the more deprived areas of London. En route, Middleton donned a pleated, baby blue coat, created from a cashmere blend, by Seraphine (retailing for about 195 pounds or $295). She teamed the pastel piece with a small black clutch, suede sapphire heels, and nude tights. 

Once inside, Prince George‘s mom removed her coat, revealing a blue and green floral dress with three-quarter-length sleeves, also by Seraphine. Over breakfast, she met with some of the families benefitting from Family Friends, as well as the volunteers who provide both practical and emotional support to those families.

From there, Middleton headed to help formally open the Kensington Aldridge Academy, a school designed to help children from poorer areas succeed via education and the performing arts. After snipping the ribbon, Middleton met with the students to discover what they were learning about, including which books they were reading.

The students also sang the Duchess the school song—half-panicked, she did tell the principal with a laugh, “I thought you were going to ask me to sing then!”—and they gifted Prince George, 17 months, with an xylophone.

From there, Middleton took a short walk over to the Kensington Leisure Centre, where students of the nearby Wetherby School, clad in their plaid uniforms, excitedly stood outside waving small recreations of the British flag to greet her upon her arrival. Middleton, who’s long been noted as an avid sports fan, met with community leaders at the Centre to hear about its new athletic facilities.

And they got to hear some news, too! The Duchess revealed that her baby’s been on the move. “It’s moving all the time. I can feel it kicking now,” Middleton told student Martina McDonagh, 17. 

Excited to discuss her royal encounter, McDonagh added, “I told her I hoped it was a girl, but she said she doesn’t know yet,” Martina said afterwards. “She said it was moving around a lot.”

Before heading back to the palace, the Duchess received one last present for baby Prince George: an inflatable duck float. Middleton revealed that Prince George had begun swimming lessons at the pool inside Buckingham Palace, but that her husband had been taught at the Centre. “The Duchess was talking about Prince William learning to swim here, and she said she hoped Prince George can come here to learn, too,” cabinet member Tim Ahern shared.
