At six months pregnant, most women would be seizing every possible opportunity to kick up their feet and unwind.
Then there’s Kate Middleton. Although the Duchess of Cambridge is already entering her third trimester and busily prepping for Baby No. 2 – while simultaneously caring for an energetic toddler, 18-month-old son Prince George – she’s showing no signs of slowing down her hectic schedule.
Case in point: On Jan. 19, the 33-year-old donned a pair of sky-high heels and spent the chilly London day attending three separate public engagements in the Kensington area.

“Kate has never been so busy,” an insider tells ‘Closer.’ “She wants to be an example to other working mothers.”
