The Duchess of Cambridge’s baby bump was clearly visible for the first time yesterday, as she attended the National Review of the Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle.
The 31-year-old, who’s six months pregnant, stepped in for the Queen at the annual event wearing a mint green cotton Mulberry coat, which is currently on sale for £1,750.
Kate accessorised her chic maternity look with her favourite nude LK Bennett “Sledge” heels and the cappuccino pillbox fascinator by Whiteley, that she has donned on several occasions.
In a break with royal tradition the Duchess is reportedly planning to move back in with her parents after the baby is born, and will not be employing a maternity nurse after the July birth.
The Duchess has allegedly told friends she will live with her parents, in their new Berkshire home, for at least the first six weeks after leaving hospital, reports The Daily Mail.
“Kate just feels safest and more secure” when she’s with her family, a source told the Daily Mail.
Kate’s parents new house is set in the secluded Berkshire countryside and will give the royal couple and their newborn more privacy, plus Kate will have her mum there for support in the first few weeks of becoming a mum.
The Duchess also appears on the cover of this weeks Hello! magazine, pictured shopping for antiques in Norfolk with friends. Hello! magazine also mocked up the baby’s nursery, and how it would look using the accessories Kate was spotted purchasing in the Antique Emporium.
Here at MFM HQ we wonder if Kate will spend six weeks at home with her parents?
