The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may already have their hands full with George and Charlotte - but Kate has hinted she'd like a third after being given a gift designed for newborns.

Kate speculated about having another child after she was offered a cuddly toy designed to soothe tiny babies during a reception in Warsaw - just hours before she donned a dazzling ivory gown for a garden party in the Queen's honour.

Saying thank you for the present during the business event on Monday Kate turned to her husband, laughing, and said: 'We will just have to have more babies.'

Later the pair rubbed shoulders with stars including model Joanna Krupa at a garden party where the Duchess wore a dress with a plunging neckline by Polish designer Gosia Baczynska - dubbed the 'tsarina of the Polish fashion scene'.

It comes just a week after Kate wore a dusty pink custom-made Marchesa gown with a similar neckline for a state banquet for the King and Queen of Spain at Buckingham Palace.

Do sheer radiance like the Duchess of Cambridge in an a-line monochrome dress

The Duchess of Cambridge positively shines in a beautiful knee length dress by Polish designer Gosia Baczynska, at a garden party in Warsaw.

Kate wore the monochrome creation, which featured black piping and leaf embellishment at the waist, with a pair of elegant black heels. Completing the look were a beautiful pair of pearl earrings and matching multi-pearl drop necklace, which were on show thanks to a super sleek up-do. .

Monochrome dresses are usually a safe, sartorial bet and tend to be timeless. There are plenty of great styles to shop now.

Miss Baczynska, who is known for her bold designs, was famously the first Polish designer to feature in the Paris fashion week calendar. 

Commenting on Kate's earlier baby remark, Julia Sielicka-Jastrzebska, who founded the company with her sister, said that Kate made the joke after learning the bears were designed for children younger than George, three and Charlotte, four.

'We gave the Duchess some presents for Prince George and Princess Charlotte,' she said. 'She said they should have more babies, and they laughed.'

The Duke and Duchess were visiting The Heart, an incubator for digital and tech start-ups in the Polish capital, on the first day of their Poland and Germany tour - seen by many as a Brexit charm offensive.

Later the couple, who touched down in Warsaw on Monday afternoon, were among 600 guests attending a party held in the Queen's honour at the Orangery in picturesque Łazienki Park, hosted by the British Ambassador Jonathan Knott.

And he read a message from the Queen which highlighted the close ties between Poland and Britain which stretch back 1,000 years.

William and Kate were met several leading Polish dignitaries at the party held at the Orangery in Warsaw's Lazienki Park which was the residence of king Stanislaw, the last king of Poland.

Earlier, the Duke and Duchess received a rapturous welcome from crowds who lined the streets of the Polish capital in the hope of catching a glimpse of the royal visitors, bearing gifts, bunches of flowers and even a sign saying: 'We love William and Kate'.

One well-wisher, 21-year-old student Magda Mordaka, told how the Duchess shrugged off a compliment from adoring fans - insisting that she is not 'beautiful'.

Magda said: 'We were telling her that she is beautiful and perfect, but she said it's not true - it's just the make-up.'

After lunch the royal couple were greeted by a huge crowd waving British and Polish flags and taking photos, as they took a brief walk in front of the palace.

Next stop on the 'respect and friendship' tour was a visit to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising Museum, dedicated to the uprising of 1944 which saw the Polish resistance Home Army attempt to liberate Warsaw from German occupation.

The pair chatted to World War II veterans Major Marian Słowiński and Colonel Edmund Brzozowski, members of the Polish Army and Resistance during World War II.

The couple shook hands with the crowd and signed autographs at the start of a two-country goodwill trip that is intended to underscore Britain's friendly ties with the European Union that it is in the process of leaving. 

After arriving at Warsaw's airport this morning, the couple were driven in a motorcade to meet President Andrzej Duda and First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda at the Presidential Palace for lunch and a stroll around the palace gardens.
