AceShowbiz - Kate Middleton just made her last royal engagement before going on maternity leave. The Duchess of Cambridge accompanied husband Prince William visiting team SportsAid at the Olympic Park on Thursday, March 22.
She opted for a casual outfit for her last official public outing, teaming her cream Goat coat with a floral Hobbs top and black skinny jeans. She accessorized the look with black high-heeled pumps and her Annoushka pearl earrings.

During the visit, Kate and William stopped to meet children who were waiting to welcome them outside the Copper Box Arena. They later watched a wheelchair basketball session before meeting players who hope to compete in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England. The Duke of Cambridge then joined the game, while Kate cheered him on from the sidelines.

After that, the couple headed out to St. Luke's Community Centre to help prepare for the Commonwealth Big Lunch. During the visit, Kate revealed that her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, love to make pizza in the kitchen with her.

"I've done that with George and Charlotte making pizza dough. They love it because they can get their hand messy," she said, before telling the translator, "I was just saying how I really enjoy making pizza dough with George and Charlotte because they like getting their hands messy."

The couple also had some fun participating in a Commonwealth Quiz where they were placed on teams and asked about the different countries that make up the British Commonwealth. It was unknown which team won the game, but it's likely that Kate and William fared pretty well during the quiz.
