Kate Middleton – who is expecting her third royal baby with Prince William – has stepped out to celebrate Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip’s 70th wedding anniversary at Windsor Castle.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked stunning as she dressed her baby bump in black lace and wore heavier makeup than usual.
Kate, 35, was seen with husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry – who were both wearing black suits and bow ties – as they made their way to the special event.
Kate wore a pink glossy lip, blusher which accentuated her glowing skin and went heavy on the bronze eyeshadow.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mum finished the look off with a very special sentimental piece of jewellery belonging to The Queen.
The striking choker necklace was all anybody could look at, which featured a diamond studded clasp and four pearl strands.

Kate’s necklace has been in the royal family for years and belongs to Queen Elizabeth.
Her Majesty was gifted the necklace by the Japanese government, and she wore it throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
The choker was also worn by the late Princess Diana in 1982 to the state banquet in 1982 for the Netherlands.
It’s not the first time Kate has borrowed Queen Elizabeth’s jewels, during a charity gala in November Kate was spotted with a striking bracelet alongside her very expensive engagement ring.
It’s thought Kate borrowed the item from her grandmother-in-law’s jewellery box.
Kate also wore the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth’s Bandeau Necklace at a banquet for the Queen of Spain.
She matched it with pearl drop earrings, too. A royal fan took to social media to comment: “I don’t know if I am more excited about the stunning necklace or the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing Diana’s earrings.”
Kate’s sentimental jewellery has raised lots of questions among royal fans.
One fan commented: “I wonder what the protocol is for borrowing jewels from the Queen? Does the queen herself just tell someone, ‘Hey, I think the Duchess should wear one of these pieces to supper,’ or does the Duchess petition the Queen?
“If so, is there a limited selection, or does she request specific pieces, or does the Duchess just ask for any piece the Queen pleases? So many questions!!”
Another added: “Does anyone else get to wear the Queen’s jewellery?”
