Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge showed off her growing baby bump as she arrived in Grimsby this morning for a visit to the Lincolnshire town.

The royal, who was over an hour late due to bad fog delaying her helicopter from London, looked blooming as she greeted dignitries outside of the Fishing Heritage Centre. Hundreds of people had gathered to welcome the pregnant royal, some waiting up to five hours for a glimpse of the brunette, and shouted well wishes as she arrived.

The Mayor of Grimsby and local MP Austin Mitchell were amongst those who greeted Kate as she arrived in a knee length brown Hobbs Celeste coat which she previously wore on a visit to Liverpool last year and though she covered her stomach with her purse, it was clear to see the royal, who is now five months into her pregnancy, is showing off a sizeable bump.

The crowds will get a chance to meet the royal when she leaves the centre following the tour, when according to the BBC she will do a mini walkabout to thank well wishers for coming out to see her.

Explaining why the Duchess chose to fly to Grimsby, St James' Palace told The Mirror:"There a number of factors taken into consideration when it comes to royal engagements.

"It depends on what the member of the royal family is doing before or after and how long the journey takes.

"It was decided that the most suitable way to travel to Grimsby was to come by helicopter."

Kate will also be visiting a local fire station and open a new building at Havelock Academy later today.
