The Duchess of Cambridge turned heads when she stepped out on Tuesday evening to attend a charity gala for the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, held at at Kensington Palace. Kate dressed her growing baby bump in a black lace Diane von Furstenberg Zarita gown — which she wore back in 2014 while she was pregnant with Princess Charlotte. The statement number was elegantly accessorised with statement earrings, a stunning bracelet and a poppy brooch. Beauty-wise, Kate's hair was styled in loose waves, while a glowy base and sweep of blusher across the apples of her cheeks enhanced her complexion. A smoky eye and pink lip completed her look.

Coincidentally, Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle owns a shorter, navy version of the Duchess' DVF gown.

Kate, who is expecting her third child, wore another statement ensemble last week when she hosted a secret meeting at Kensington Palace. The Duchess wore a Boutique Moschino cream jacket, which is currently sold out but retailed for £261 on Net-a-Porter. The chic number, made of wool and cotton, featured a demure, high neckline and was embellished with three bows.

Since her pregnancy news back in September, Kate has been dressing to impress during her engagements. Last month, she made a surprise appearance at Paddington station, where she teamed a pastel pink Orla Kiely dress with a pair of block heels from Tod's. The design, which are described online as being "chicness and practicality combined", were a change from her usual choice of footwear. The 35-year-old tends to prefer a stiletto style shoe, and her heels were most probably a well-thought out decision to ensure that she was comfortable for the occasion.

Kate's due date was announced by Kensington Palace in October in a short statement. It read: "Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to confirm they are expecting a baby in April 2018." Prince William and Kate, both 35, are set to welcome their third child together. The couple are already the proud parents to Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two.
