Showing just a hint of a baby bump, the Duchess of Cambridge chatted it up with young athletes and Paralympians during an appearance on Wednesday at a sports-related charity she supports. 

Duchess Kate met with British athletes aspiring to participate in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo who have received assistance from SportsAid, a London-based organization that helps provide them with financial support.

The duchess, who is expecting her second child with Prince William, wore a plum dress by the brand Goat paired with black stockings and boots as she received a tour of the GlaxoSmithKline Human Performance Lab in London. She was guided on the tour by wheelchair athlete David Weir and British swimmer Keri-Anne Payne, an Olympic silver medalist. Several of the athletes also underwent performance tests as the duchess looked on.

Joking that she couldn't try any of the performance tests because of her pregnancy, she tried a cognitive test instead during her visit.
