While news of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's upcoming nuptials have received mass media attention, the news of Kate Middleton and Prince William's unborn third child has been pushed to the sidelines.
However, the Duchess of Cambridge's lack of publicity hasn't affected the pregnant royal from attending public engagements.
On Jan. 17, Middleton went to visit students who took part in the Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative (WJTI) at a primary school as part of her role as patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC).
According to E! as a huge tennis fan, Middleton shared that while she loves the sport, motherhood has prevented her to participate in the game as often as she'd like.
"I love tennis, I think it's a great sport, I was really sporty when I was little, less so now that I've got lots of babies," Middleton said as she reportedly patted her baby bump.
Afterwards Middleton had a meet and greet with the students plenty of hugs.
Thank you to everyone at Bond Primary School for showing us your racquet skills (and for all of the hugs)! 🎾 pic.twitter.com/ww5jKmj3H3— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) January 17, 2018
While it was great to see her sweet interactions with the young pupils, one of the main focuses of the appearance was her growing baby bump.
