Duchess Kate says she doesn’t know baby’s gender, but it’s ‘kicking now’.

In response, an understanding Kate, 33, who wore a baby blue coat by maternity designer Seraphine, told him, “I would be shy as well,” as the boy’s mother, Tracy Samuels, presented the Duchess with the bouquet of white lilacs and nasturtiums.

The Kensington and Chelsea Council presented Kate with lifetime membership for her family, along with a duck-shaped rubber ring for Prince George and his own swimming lesson kit. After a quiet weekend spent with husband Prince William and little Prince George at her parents’ home in Bucklebury, Kate came to London’s Kensington neighborhood to meet with volunteers and beneficiaries of the charity Family Friends.

According to a pool report, while attending Monday’s ceremonial opening for the Kensington Leisure Centre in London, the Duchess of Cambridge told a local teen that she “doesn’t know” if she’s having a girl or a boy, but that “it’s moving all the time. Although Kensington is known for its fabulously wealthy residents and its palace, it also has areas of deprivation, so Family Friends provides mentoring services to families in need. “My children are happy and healthy, I have finished my degree and gone back to work. Prince William learned to swim there as a child, when a pool existed on the same site as the new center. “The Duchess was talking about Prince William learning to swim here and she said she hoped Prince George can come here to learn too,” Tim Ahern, the council’s Cabinet member for environment and leisure, told reporters.

Over at the tai chi demonstration, Kate told grandmother Shelagh Laslett-O’Brien, 65, that she liked the look of the sport. “She said she’d maybe come down and try it after she’s had the baby,” Laslett-O’Brien, a retired social worker who ran a centre for homeless and refugee families in nearby Bayswater, tells PEOPLE. She also stopped by the school’s Creates Hub for young entrepreneurs, and met students who are designing items for sale at nearby Portobello Road Market, Notting Hill. She’s expected to join her parents for a family winter vacation in the Caribbean next week, as mum Carole is set to mark her 60th birthday on Mustique. She had a nice presence.” Their ease with her contrasted with earlier when a little two year old had dissolved into nerves at the prospect of handing her flowers and a tiny baby started crying when he met her.

The Middletons make annual holidays to the sunshine island – last year Kate took George for the first time, while the previous year she and William had a babymoon there. Zack Benson, eight months old, and with his first teeth about to come through, was in the greeting line-up in the arms of his mother Rosie at a new high school in west London that Kate was opening. As for William, he is currently hitting the books, doing his commercial pilots’ license exams before on-board training for his air ambulance job that begins in the spring.

He is the son of David Benson, the head of the Kensington Aldridge Academy. “You¹re very tired,” six-month-pregnant Kate told Zack. “He is very sweet.” His mum, 33, explained, “I think he is quite tired and hungry.” During her tour of the school, she met children in reading groups, including one 11-year-old girl reading a book called How To Avoid A Wombat’s Bum. “She said, It looks like a good book,” Chyna Mealin told reporters.
