Kate Middleton knows what fashions work for her pregnancy (read: all of them), and she showed the world again that she has some incredible baby bump style. The Duchess of Cambridge donned her Hobbs Dalmatian-print coat during Wednesday's trip to the Turner Contemporary art gallery where she was going to look at the final self-portrait by Sir Anthony Van Dyck, according to the Express.

Prince William's wife also wore the coat while pregnant with Prince George in 2013, which she matched with a black fascinator and a half-up, half-down 'do. This time, however, she opted for a dressed-up ponytail. She paired her baby bump and coat with black Jimmy Choo heels to top off her chic look. As per usual, her affordable coat sold out in minutes!

This will continue to be a busy week for the royal, as she is also set to visit Ealing Studios tomorrow "to celebrate the success of the award-winning production" of Downton Abbey! That's right, there's a real-life royal headed to Downton. The pregnant duchess will get a personal tour of the Downton Abbey set from executive producer Liz Trubridge, and she'll also meet with cast and crew members including Dame Maggie Smith, Phyllis Logan, Robert James-Collier, Lesley Nicol and Sophie McShera.

Prince George's mom will have the opportunity to "watch one take of a scene being filmed in the servants' quarters for series 6 and a second take of the scene via a monitor in the 'Video Village' area, before proceeding to the Servants Hall to join cast members, writers and producers in an official photograph," according to the palace.

Kate will also meet other cast members including Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern, in addition to attending a brief reception with production and Ealing staff. Kate actually had a connection to the show prior to this visit! Her sister, Pippa Middleton, grew up playing tennis with Lady Mary aka Michelle Dockery! As Michelle told E! News, Prince William's sister-in-law "actually came on-set with her brother, James [Middleton], a few years ago!"
