After a week filled with baby buzz, Kate Middleton made a special visit to St. Andrew's School in Pangbourne, UK this afternoon (November 30).

The 30-year-old royal looked lovely in a plaid coat that matched the children's uniforms as she carried a gorgeous bouquet and greeted the excited students.

This visit was especially close to Miss Middleton since she once attended St. Andrews for her own primary education.

Deputy Head Richard Hudson, who is still at the school described Kate as a "sporty" pupil, adding, "She held our record for the high jump... for about 20 years she's had that. She was very hard working, very polite and friendly, [and] very kind to the younger children."

Miss Middleton also chimed in during her trip, saying, "It is such a treat to be back here at St. Andrew's. I absolutely loved my time here; they were some of my happiest years, which makes it so incredibly special to be here today."

"In fact, I enjoyed it so much that when I had to leave, I told my mother that I was going to come back to be a teacher. While that didn't quite happen, I was thrilled to have been asked back today on St. Andrew's Day."
