Kate's day started at the Royal Garden Hotel in central London where she and the Duke of Cambridge officially greeted the President of Singapore, Tony Tan, and his wife, Mary. They accompanied them to Horse Guards Parade where they were met by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

After a welcome ceremony, also attended by David Cameron, the royals and their guests took part in a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace where the Queen hosted a private lunch and then gave the President and his wife a tour of some of the Singaporean items in the Royal Collection. And the duchess was clearly enjoying herself, telling Mary Tan that she was glad to be out of the house again.
Kate was back on duty later in the day when she was at the Natural History Museum in London for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards - she is the museum's patron. And she looked stunning, and very happy, as she walked in wearing a Jenny Packham evening dress that - from some angles - showed the tiniest hint of a baby bump.
