Pregnant Kate Middleton looked stunning today during a public outing visiting Roe Green Junior School to meet with pupils and teachers and take part in a lesson designed to help support a child’s mental health and well-being.
The Duchess of Cambridge stunned in an all blue ensemble, complete with stunning sapphire drop earrings to match her iconic (and costly!) engagement ring.
The move comes after Kate, age 36, was recently spotted out and about without her engagement ring on.
Kate also has a gorgeous matching necklace to compliment the ring, too. Here’s what you need to know abut her sapphire collection:

Pear-shaped sapphire earrings and necklace
It’s thought the Duchess first came into possession of the stunning earrings and necklace in 2015, three years after her wedding to Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s dad as a gift from her husband.
The eldest Middleton child was first pictured wearing the pear shaped blue tanzanite and diamond with the complimenting necklace as she stepped out for National Service of Commemoration honouring those who served in Afghanistan.

And duo crafted by royal jeweller G. Collins & Sons have become a favourite of hers since.
But they’re not the only of their type in the Duchess’s extensive collection.
Princess Diana’s sapphire earrings and ring
Kate, who is due to give birth in April 2018, has another pair of similar earrings.
Handed down from her late mother in law she also has a more discreet pair of blue sapphire and diamond earrings she often wears.
Princess Diana wore them as studs, but fashion-savvy Kate had them altered into drop earrings.
Her stunning engagement ring, made up of 14 solitaire diamonds surrounding a 12-carat oval, also belonged to Diana, as Harry gave it to his big brother to propose with.
As well as borrow from Prince Harry and Prince William’s mother’s collection, Kate often borrows from the Queen’s jewels, too.
During her third pregnancy, the Duchess has worn a dazzling bracelet from Elizabeth II with a special family meaning, for example.
Meghan Markle , however, will have to wait until she has married Harry to indulge in the privilege.
