After laying low due to pregnancy issues, the royal stepped out to celebrate those working in the mental health sector.

Kate Middleton has made her first public appearance since announcing she is expecting her third child.

The 35-year-old Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with her husband, Prince William, and brother-in-law, Prince Harry, on Tuesday to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace in London, celebrating those working in the mental health sector.

The event was held to mark World Mental Health Awareness Day.

Wearing a long-sleeved, pale blue dress and navy heels, the royal looked radiant in her first official outing since being put on bed rest due to suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition causing severe morning sickness which she also experienced with her previous pregnancies.

A hint of a baby bump could be seen in footage of Middleton taken by a reporter.

Kensington Palace also posted a snap of the royal trio on their Twitter account.

“The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry have made championing the mental health sector a priority over the last year. #WorldMentalHealthDay,” read the comment accompanying the pic.
