The Duchess of Cambridge was the picture of spring as she stepped out in London on Wednesday (Mar. 21), looking fresh as ever in the season's hottest trend: pastels. Organized by the Royal Foundation, Kate attended an event at the Royal Society of Medicine wearing a mint-green coat and Jimmy Choo pumps. Prince William's wife is due to give birth to her third child in April and let her natural glow shine through by wearing natural eye makeup with a pink lip and some blush. Her brown locks were typically glossy and full of bounce.

She wore Seraphine's Marlene blue lace dress, with co-ordinating high heel shoes and a smart clutch bag.
