Presenting traditional sprigs of shamrock at the Irish Guard’s Parade this weekend mum-to-be, Kate Middleton, glowed in an event appropriate green-coloured coat.
But haven’t we seen this look somewhere before? Kate did in fact buy the beautiful, knee-length Emilia Wickstead dress coat for the same event last year. The fit and flare style means it is now perfect for accommodating her growing bump!
Husband, Prince William, was also at the parade, dressed up to the nines in his full ceremonial attire. Last year’s event was the first military event that Kate attended solo – looks like the dad-to-be wants to keep a close eye on his five months’ pregnant wife!
Fit and flare coats are a great choice for expectant mums, as they tailor in underneath the bust and then flare out to accommodate the bump, making them a brilliant investment buy. Kate, who is now five months pregnant, styled hers, pre-bump, with a patent black waist belt to emphasise her tiny waistline.
We have rounded up three of the best fit and flare coats on the high street, from some of Princess Kate’s favourite fashion labels…so you can get the look, too!
