Billions of people around the world tuned in to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot on April 29, 2011. Ever since, fans have followed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s every move and were excited to learn that the adorable couple were expecting their first child in July. In celebration of their two-year anniversary,
we’re taking a look back at Kate’s royal maternity style.
All eyes are on Duchess Kate and her royal bump! According to E! Online, just hours after the duchess wore this black-and-white polka-dot dress from Topshop, it sold out online and in stores! Kate completed her look with a black Ralph Lauren jacket and suede pumps during the inauguration of Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in England on April 25, 2013
Check out the photos below
Mad for mint! The first-time mom-to-be stepped out in a lovely pastel Emilia Wickstead dress paired with gray suede pumps at the National Portrait Gallery on April 24, 2013. Very Jackie O! What do you think?
Straying from her usual monochromatic looks, Duchess Kate mixes it up with pattern. The stylish soon-to-be mom wore a navy-and-burgundy dress that showed her cute growing belly during a visit to the Willows School on April 23, 2013. She completed her look with a matching pair of her favorite pumps and a clutch. (How about that 18-carat sapphire ring? WOW!)
Sure, this may be an unflattering photo of the Duchess. But for the sake of her burgeoning bump, we included it to prove that despite her tiny frame, there is a royal baby brewing in her belly.
During the National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle on April 21, 2013, the duchess stepped out in her spring best. She wore an elegant mint-colored tweed Mulberry coat paired with her favorite nude L.K. Bennett pumps. She topped off her look with a very familiar-looking brown Whiteley fascinator that she has been spotted wearing many times before. Gotta love the duchess for recycling her look
We spy a mini-bump! Beneath Duchess Kate’s navy-and-gray tartan coat by Moloh, we see signs of the royal baby. Kate completed her look with a pair of opaque black tights and knee-high boots during her appearance at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, on April 4, 2013.
Sometimes the duchess wants to be just Kate. And we love it! Here, the brunette beauty traded in her elegant ensembles in favor of an army-inspired jacket, dark denim and matching wellies during an outing at the Great Tower Scout Camp in northern England on March 22, 2013.
Duchess Kate is known for wearing out the soles of her shoes before she adds a new pair to her collection. Don’t believe us? Take a look at her trusty pumps. But the same doesn’t go for her outerwear! It seems like the duchess has a new coat for every appearance that she makes, like this black-and-teal Malene Birger number that she wore on March 20, 2013.
Remember Kim K’s controversial color-blocked frock? Well, this is how black-and-white is done right — while pregnant. The duchess covered up her adorable bump with a roomy coat by Goat during a visit to the Offices of Child Bereavement on March 19, 2013.
Duchess Kate loves to mix couture with consumer-friendly garments. Under her very pricey ivory coat by Goat, she wore this black Topshop dress with a Peter Pan collar.
Kate looked well rested and very posh in her Diane von Furstenberg coat and L.K. Bennett boots after spending a few days in the hospital due to a bout with acute morning sickness. The mommy-to-be and her handsome hubby Prince William gazed adoringly into each other’s eyes as they left the hospital in London on Dec. 5, 2012.
She may not be the typical lady in red, but she certainly wears the color impeccably well. Duchess Kate braved the chilly weather in this Armani coat that she was reportedly spotted wearing for the first time in 2006. She added a little flair to her rather modest getup by accessorizing with a red-and-yellow plaid scarf at the opening of England’s Tamar Manoukian Outdoor Centre at the Dumfries House on April 5, 2013.
.During a visit to London’s Hope House, the modish royal wrapped up her tiny baby bump in a wrap dress by MaxMara on Feb. 19, 2013.
It’s a St. Paddy’s redux! Back in 2012, when Kate wasn’t with child, she wore this green Emilia Wickstead coat cinched tightly around her waist with a brown belt in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Though she donned the same look one year later in honor of the holiday, her belly needed a little more breathing room and she ditched the taut accessory.
Up until now, Kate has been hiding her growing belly in various overcoats, like the muted peach coat that she wore to the Cheltenham Festival in England on March 15, 2013. She completed her look with a brown fascinator, gloves and clutch. Would you wear this look? Tell us!
Another day, another sophisticated coat for the duchess. Kate stepped out in this brown Hobbs coat with leather detailing during an appearance in northern England on March 5, 2013. Thank goodness it’s almost summer! ‘Cuz we’re bored with her overcoats.
