Radiant Kate makes first public appearance since announcing pregnancy

First appearance: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend a reception on World Mental Health Day at Buckingham Palace
The Duchess of Cambridge has made her first public appearance since announcing her most recent pregnancy.
Kate, who has not been seen in public since August 30, joined husband Prince William and brother in law Prince Harry to host a glittering Palace reception to mark World Mental Health Day.
She looked radiant in a blue lace dress by Temperley London which covered over her bump.
Kate is believed to be less than 12 weeks pregnant and has been suffering from the condition Hyperemesis Gravidarum - morning sickness.
Royal fans have not seen the Duchess since the end of August when she joined the Duke and Harry to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.
The trio toured Kensington Palace's sunken garden which had been transformed into a memorial space planted with white foliage and flowers in honour of Diana.
A royal aide said: "The Duchess' condition is improving but she's still suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. She's delighted to be here tonight."
It is understood Kate's appearance does not mean she will be resuming full royal duties.
The duke and duchess and Prince Harry arrived via a well-known hidden door in the Palace's White drawing room and waiting to meet them were leading figures from the mental health sector including Mind president and comic Stephen Fry.
As Kate mingled with guests, her slight baby bump could clearly be seen beneath her Temperley dress.
The 350 guests at the event included former Dame Esther Rantzen, model Adwoa Aboah and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Kate was praised for making an appearance despite her sickness. 
Stephen Fry, who is the president of mental health charity Mind, said: "I do understand she's been having this problem more severely than many pregnant mothers and so we're very grateful [she's here]."
Kensington Palace announced on September 4 that Kate was expecting her third child and, like previous pregnancies with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, was suffering from severe morning sickness.
