After yesterday’s pictures of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wearing the most fitted and floral dress we have seen her in to date, we have been treated to another great glimpse of the growing royal bump.
Kate looked incredibly happy, smiling widely for the waiting crowds, as she paid a visit to London’s National Portrait Gallery in a bespoke, sparkling blue Emilia Wickstead dress. Emilia is without doubt a favourite designer of Kate’s. She wore a green fit and flare coat to the St Patick’s Day parade for two years in a row – one year without bump, one with!
Rumours are already circulating that the Duchess’s choice of a blue dress to last night’s event is a clue to the sex of their unborn baby – but we’re not so sure!
Kate attended the gallery in her official capacity as patron of The Art Room charity, which helps children to learn though art, making a speech during the evening to 250 guests. She completed her glowing pregnancy look with suede grey heels and her trademark, half-up, half-down, elegant hairstyle.
Speaking about the charity, Kate said: “As patron of The Art Room, I feel immense pride to see the amazing work that they are doing but I also feel hugely excited to look to a future with more Art Rooms, where many more challenging and vulnerable children will be helped.”
The Duchess, who is expecting her first baby this July, is showing no signs of slowing down her busy work schedule. She will accompany Prince William and a group of children on a visit to the World of Harry Potter, this Sunday.
