She's positively glowing! Kate Middleton — who is due to welcome royal baby No. 3 in April — made a solo visit to Pegasus Primary School in Oxford, England on Tuesday, March 6 to learn more about the Family Links charity. During the outing, Kate perfectly showed off her growing baby bump in a budget-friendly, white, JoJo Maman Bébé wool coat. She previously donned the chic coat dress while touring the Downton Abbey set back in 2015, when she was eight months pregnant with Princess Charlotte. Watch the video below to see Kate's latest baby bump pics!

Just a few days earlier, the Duchess of Cambridge visited London's Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) on Tuesday, Feb. 27 and similarly flaunted her growing baby bump in the process. During the official outing, the 36-year-old looked gorgeous in a blue Jenny Packham overcoat and dress accessorized with sapphire jewelry, a royal blue clutch, and matching pumps.

Though Kate's all-blue outfit made many royal fans believe she may be hinting that her third baby will be a boy, bookies have placed the most bets on the Duchess and Prince William welcoming another girl this spring. Additionally, Princess Mary recently usurped Princess Alice as the top royal baby name contender for the couple's unborn little one.

Throughout her third pregnancy, Kate has stepped out in lots of chic maternity clothes and has recycled lots of her outfits! In mid-January, Kate showed off her growing belly in a recycled, pink Mulberry coat that she previously donned twice while pregnant with daughter Charlotte. During that event, Kate and William, 35, were greeted by a crowd of local English students and one child, nine-year-old Darcy Hayes, gave Kate a bouquet of yellow and blue flowers when they met.

"She said her son George will love the flowers because he loves police colors. I told them I had an American Girl doll for Christmas, and William said Charlotte loves dolls. They were nice and cheerful," Hayes said of the royal couple. Another child, nine-year-old Mia Ramin, similarly gushed that the Duke and Duchess "seemed really nice." How cute!

Kate also previously flaunted her baby bump in a recycled Seraphine dress paired with a wool coat by Hobbs. In the past, she wore the pretty, blue and green frock (which retails for $87) twice during her pregnancy with Charlotte. Though Kate has been photographed many times in recent months — most notably her exciting appearance with future sister-in-law Meghan Markle on Christmas! — her latest outings are the first time in a while that her baby bump has been noticeably prominent. In October, the Duchess showed off her growing belly for only the second time when she visited London's Paddington train station with William and Prince Harry.

Earlier last fall, Kate made her first public appearance at Buckingham Palace after revealing she is expecting again. The mom-of-two had sadly been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum — a severe form of morning sickness that can last throughout an entire pregnancy — and had stayed completely out of the spotlight until that time. After Kate debuted her tiny baby bump, she was unfortunately mom-shamed by online haters who slammed the gorgeous royal's appearance for a plethora of silly reasons.

According to Glamour magazine, people commented things like, "Of course she doesn't look pregnant," "I can't believe she's prego, she looks too thin," and "Malnourished anorexic," in response to the photos. Truly awful, right?! It, of course, goes without saying that every woman is different and every pregnancy is different, so no one should be shaming a glowing mom-to-be about her appearance, baby bump, or really anthing else.

A source close to Kate recently told Us Weekly that she is now "feeling great" after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. "[She is] enjoying her later months of pregnancy... It’s amazing what a difference the later trimesters feel like compared to the early days, which she really struggled with more than ever this time," the insider revealed. We can't wait to see more of Kate as her cute baby bump grows!
