Well it makes sense considering she spent most of her summer cheering on Team GB at the London Olympics.

All eyes were of course firmly set on the Duchess' baby bump.

Wearing a green, floor length Alexander McQueen Bell Sleeve gown, we could JUST about see the starts of her teeny tiny 12-week baby bump.

Kate had of course been struggling with severe morning sickness  recently but looked positively glowing as she made her way to the stage to present the prestigious awards.

Kate Middleton presented two of the accolades, the first alongside David Beckham to which they presented the Lifetime achievement to Lord Sebastian Coe.

After an incredible summer, we would have expected nothing less.

Have a word with the in laws Kate and get this man a Knighthood!

Kate also gave out the biggest gong of the night to cyclist Bradley Wiggins for sports personality of the year.

Olympic athlete Jessica Ennis narrowly missed out on the top award, coming in second for her incredible London 2012 Gold medal performance.

In all the excitement of meeting Kate Middleton and accepting the award, the athlete accidentally snubbed the Duchess' open palm of congratulations.

Eek!

Luckily, Kate didn't seem to hold this against as the two were spotted chatting later on in the evening.
