Pregnant Kate Middleton continues to be a class act.

The gorgeous mother-to-be met with the U.K.'s Chief Scout Bear Grylls at Windsor Castle Sunday where she honored the achievements of hundreds of scouts, and the TV star spoke out about his admiration for the Duchess of Cambridge, admitting he's honored to have her be a part of the organization.

"The Duchess is an incredible role model and she helps us show that Scouting's not just for boys," Grylls, who became the U.K.'s youngest Chief Scout in 2009, said of the trained Scout volunteer.

He continued, noting how Middleton's support for the organization has encouraged others to volunteer, "She's also such a generous volunteer and everyone is so excited to have her in the Scouting family. Many people have followed her lead and are getting involved and enjoying the adventure."

Since Middleton joined the Scouts in 2012, the organization has seen the second biggest rise in volunteers since 1986.

From recycled fashion to Scouting, seems like everyone wants to follow in Kate's royal footsteps!
