They may have a third child on the way and a family wedding to prep for, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are keeping busy!

On Wednesday morning, Kate Middleton stepped out for a visit to the Robin Hood Primary School in London to celebrate 10 years of the Royal Horticultural Society Campaign for School Gardening.

The pregnant royal went casual for the outdoor activities, in knee-high brown boots, a cozy turtleneck sweater and an army green jacket. She accepted a lovely bouquet of flowers before working with the schoolchildren on their gardening.

She also met with kids whittling “bug homes” that were all a part of the group’s project, “Bugingham Palace.”

The group toasted the day with a tasty iced cake, which Kate helped pass out to the children.

While Kate was staying close to home, Prince William jetted off for his two-day tour of Helsinki, Finland, which falls on the year the country is celebrating 100 years of independence.

“During #RoyalVisitFinland, HRH will meet community leaders, mental health campaigners, young people in the tech industry & learn about the unique Finnish education system,” Kensington Palace wrote on Twitter.

William first visited a local ice skating rink to learn about Icehearts, a child welfare charity. 

Kate opened up about the exciting news that her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, was officially engaged to actress Meghan Markle on Tuesday. Watch the clip below to see what she had to say!
