Kate Middleton was spotted and photographed leaving Buckingham Palace earlier today, driving herself and Prince George (and Nanny Maria and a bodyguard) in a Range Rover. She was presumably there taking George for a swim in the palace pool as reportedly George loves to swim.

So now we have a visual Kate update. I wonder how long until she gives birth. I really hope it is sooner rather than later.
Amusingly crowds outside Buck Palace today cheered Kate's car – unclear whether they realised she was in it, though! http://t.co/w6GXt3uUfh

Early this morning, around 9AM UK time, Prince William and Kate sent pastries to the royal fans camped outside the Lindo Wing. Royal staff brought over ten cups of coffee and two boxes of pastries – four croissants, two Danish pastries, an apple turnover and fruit bun – purchased from a local shop. The box was wrapped in pink ribbons, which they say is just a coincidence.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said: “The Duke and Duchess have seen the news reports about these people camping out and they just wanted to let them know they were thinking of them.”
I know we all will side-eye this gesture because we’re in that habit now (by Will and Kate’s own design), but even if this gesture is just PR, I think it is very sweet of them (or whoever thought of it). The people camping out are loyal fans and it’s always nice to see celebs and royals treat their fans kindly.
Too bad the press didn’t get any pastries, though.
