Duchess of Cambridge makes final public appearances before giving birth
Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge is making her final public appearances today (27.03.15) before giving birth.
The 33-year-old royal has travelled with her husband the Duke of Cambridge to south London, where her final three engagements are planned to take place.
The Duchess – who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her marriage to Prince William in 2011 – visited the Stephen Lawrence Centre in south London, where she was introduced to Doreen Lawrence, whose son was murdered in a racist attack in 1993.
The royal couple are also due to visit the XLP in Gipsy Hill, a charity that aspires to create positive futures for young people, as well as visiting the XLP community bus and the XLP mobile recording studio in Sydenham.
Meanwhile, it was revealed earlier this week that bookmakers in Britain have taken a flurry of bets on the name of Duchess Catherine’s second child.
Bookmakers slashed the odds on the baby being named Alice, following a surge of bets on the name.
Speaking earlier this week, Cormac Dowling, novelties and politics trader for Betfair, said: “Elizabeth had been the clear favourite until an unexpected rush of support for Alice over the last 24 hours and we’ve been forced to slash the price from 8/1 to 3/1.”
