Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton visited the set of Britain’s hit TV show “Downton Abbey” in West London where the cast had the opportunity to interact with the expecting mother.
Middleton, a personal fan of the series along with husband Prince William, arrived in Ealing Studios on Thursday and everyone was stunned, including the stars.
US Weekly is reporting that the 33-year-old dressed her growing baby bump in a cream Jojo Maman Bebe coat, paring it with black heels, a matching clutch, and her *signature blowout (see the video above to get the look).
“The Duchess was taken inside to see different areas of the production process, escorted by Executive Producer Liz Trubridge,” explains the entertainment news site. “She visited makeup artists at work, met costume designers, seamstresses and cutters in the workshop, and was introduced to the people behind the design and production process of set scenery and props.”

In addition, Middleton met cast members and even received some gifts, too. Oliver Barker, the youngest cast member of “Downton Abbey,” presented the Duchess with a wooden horse for her son, Prince George.
Middleton, who is 8 months pregnant with her second child, is due to give birth sometime in April. No word on whether England will welcome another prince or princess…yet
