The Duchess of Cambridge admitted she's "nervous" about giving birth as she visited a south London addiction charity on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old was chatting to a group of women recovering from drink and drug addictions at at a treatment centre run by the charity Action On Addiction of which she is patron.
The Duchess spent time with an arts therapy group at Hope House in Clapham, south London, where the centre's clients had completed paintings charting their battle with substance abuse.
Lisa, a mother-of-three who did not want to give her full name, said: "I did ask her if she was nervous (about giving birth). She said it would be unnatural if she wasn't - she's human like us."
The 34-year-old, who turned to drink during a violent marriage which lasted 18 years, said: "I said 'Congratulations and good luck, I hope it all goes OK'."
Kate also chatted to Natalie, who has a two-year-old daughter and is due to give birth to a second child in July - the same month as the Duchess who is more than four months pregnant.
The 28-year-old said the talk also turned to babies when they chatted: "We're due about the same time. She's been unwell and feeling better now and I felt pretty much the same the first time."
