The former Kate Middleton arrived at the famous rail stop in a pale peach-pink dress by designer Orla Kiely featuring a subtle tone-on-tone floral pattern, and she wore her hair down with shoulder-sweeping curls.

Kate joined her husband and Prince Harry at the Charities Forum event, but the royals weren't the only famous faces in attendance.

They met with the cast of the upcoming "Paddington 2" movie, and the princes even shook the paw of the bear at the center of the story.

But Kate went a step further — actually, a few steps and a twirl — as she danced with the beloved children's character.

That dance was accompanied by smiles and laughter, and it all seemed to indicate that the duchess was enjoying a respite from her struggles with hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare pregnancy complication that led to her recent time out of the spotlight and that affected her during both of her previous pregnancies.

The event continued beyond the platform as the royal trio boarded the Belmond British Pullman train and joined more than 100 children representing many of the charities they support.
