Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is proving that the third time is really the charm when it comes to pregnancy. The glowing royal seems to be very content as she nears closer to her April due date — and she’s making the most of this time. Just one day after stunning in her green Jenny Packham gown at the BAFTAs, the 36-year-old was joined by fellow royal family member Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 53, at a grand soiree at Buckingham Palace on Monday, Feb. 19.

The two women co-hosted the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange reception, an initiative that allows designers and creators from the UK’s 52 Commonwealth countries to make one-of-a-kind sustainable outfits. The unique designs were certainly dazzling, but as expected, it was pregnant Kate that caught everyone’s attention. At the posh event, the mom-of-two rocked a black-and-white lace floral print dress by UK designer Erdem. Sophie also kept with the British theme by donning a Burberry frock. The high-profile event saw fashion royalty Anna Wintour and Stella McCartney amongst the guests.
