While Prince William does his thing on an official visit to China (shaking hands with Chinese President Xi Jinping, that kind of stuff), Kate took a lunch trip to the Goring Hotel yesterday.
Although looking elegant as ever, Kate also seemed a little tired – as you’d expect given that she’s now in her 7th month of pregnancy.
The visit no doubt evoked many memories for her as it was where she and the Middleton gang spent the night before her wedding in 2011. This time round, Kate was enjoying a few hours at the Goring to celebrate its 105th birthday. (Yes, really, in posh circles hotels have birthday parties!)
There was probably another birthday on Kate’s mind as she stepped out in the spring sunshine in her gorgeous (though pricey) purple Erdem frock though – that of her second baby!
There’s no denying that the Royal bump has come on in leaps and bounds in the past few weeks – or was it just the cut of her £995 frock that was accentuating it?
At 7 months into her pregnancy, it’s not long now before the arrival of her second baby. And with two nippers under 2 to soon be dealing with, Kate should definitely be squeezing in as many lunches and parties while she still has the chance, because we reckon they are going to be off the menu for a while pretty soon!
