Kate Middleton and Prince William kicked off a two-day tour of Scotland yesterday by visiting one of the venues for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland to a large group of fans.

Six-month-pregnant Kate kept warm in a Scottish-inspired blue and grey plaid worker's coat from British brand Moloh.

The Duchess's fitted jacket was created by designer Caroline Smiley, designer and founder of Moloh, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

Kate completed her outfit by adding her go-to Aquatalia "Rumba" boots, a black suede clutch and diamond and sapphire earrings.

The Duchess also divulged some details about the royal baby during a visit to a Glasgow homeless shelter on the same day.

"It's around mid-July, but apparently babies have their own agenda," she joked to reporters.

But she kept her lips zipped when it came to names and gender.

According to Mirror News, when centre project manager Rachel Sawyer asked the Duchess about baby names, she replied: "We have a shortlist for both (boy and girl), but it's very difficult."

"My friends keep texting me names."

While you can pick up the boots Kate wore for about $750, the jacket might be difficult to snag. It's sold out on Moloh's website, and a brand representative says they only crafted a handful.

"This coat is from our collection released this year," the representative tells the Telegraph.

"Only 20 have been made, so once they've gone, they've gone."
