Kate Middleton looked beautiful in blue on Friday evening.

The expecting Duchess of Cambridge showed off her growing baby bump in a gorgeous light blue embellished dress, designed by Jenny Packham, while attending the Royal Variety Performance in London. Middleton was accompanied to the event, held at the Palladium Theatre, by her husband, Prince William.

It was announced that the royal couple is expecting their third child back in September with an announcement from Kensington Palace.

"Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child," the statement read. "The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."

The palace also revealed that Middleton was suffering from acute morning sickness at the time.

William and Kate were delayed arriving to the event Friday evening, reportedly due to an incident around Oxford Street where police "received reports of shots being fired," according to BBC. After arriving on the scene, officers found no evidence of gunfire.
