Hot on the heels of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first royal engagement of 2018, Kate Middleton also stepped out for her first official outing of the year, a day after she celebrated her 36th birthday. Dressed in a chic navy double-breasted coat, the duchess, who is currently pregnant with her third child, visited the Reach Academy in Feltham, London. She was there on behalf of the children's mental health charity Place2Be, for which she's been a patron for a number of years.
Kate waved as she greeted pupils from the school before bending down to chat with some of the youngest children (and a very cute dog). She then headed inside where she participated in art activities with a group of children and listened to news on how the teachers and staff work closely with parents to ensure there's a close link between home and school.
