Will it be a baby brother for Prince George? We don't know — and, evidently, neither do his parents — but Duchess Kate dressed the royal baby bump in a deep blue hue all the same on Wednesday.

Kate, who's now seven months pregnant, was wrapped in layers of the cool shade from head to toe — with a blue floral maternity dress from Seraphine, navy blue Jimmy Choo shoes and a coordinating coat from MaxMara — as she paid a visit to the headquarters of pottery company Emma Bridgewater.

The duchess wasn't there to expand her personal pottery collection. This was the latest in her ongoing support of the East Anglia Children's Hospices (EACH).

The visit celebrated the launch of a line of charity mugs that will benefit EACH, which devotes its resources to caring for terminally ill children and their families.

Once inside, she spoke to Matthew Bridgewater, and the company's namesake, Emma, about the designs.

She even received a hands-on tour of the pottery process.

And Duchess Kate also received some charity of her own while there. Chloe, a 16-year-old hospice patient, gave the royal a painting as a thank-you gift.
