The duchess, who is patron of the 1851 Trust, was literally blooming as she tried her hand at sailing a winch simulator (whatever that is). You know she's a grafter.

Kate wore a boat print short elbow-sleeved, knee-length dress from the Somerset collection by Alice Temperley (yours for a cool £99 from John Lewis, though currently "due back in stock soon") which she teamed with navy suede Jimmy Choo heels, matching L.K. Bennett clutch and a beautiful off-white coat from MaxMara.

Check that baby bump, check that post Mustique holiday glow.
