Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead – National Portrait Gallery

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - National Portrait Gallery

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge continued her busy week of official engagements with an appearance at a reception hosted by the National Portrait Gallery in London this evening.

The event honours the work of The Art Room, a charity which uses painting and drawing to build the self-confidence of young people.

Catherine’s maternity style continues to impress I am delighted to say.

The expectant royal looked divine wearing a sleeveless baby-blue Emilia Wickstead dress which perfectly showed off her growing baby bump.

She completed her look with a half-up, half-down hairstyle with cascading curls and grey suede Rupert Sanderson ‘Malone’ pumps.

I absolutely love this. The colour is so complementary to her colouring and perfect for the spring season. I’m surprised to say this, but I can’t wait to see what she wears next.

Do you love Catherine’s maternity style?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Erdem – Manchester Visit

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge - Manchester Visit

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge finally showed off her growing baby bump when she paid a visit to Willows Primary School in Manchester, England this afternoon, where she helped to launch a project to help reduce the impact of drug and alcohol addiction on children in the UK.

On such a glorious day she could no longer hide her bump under a coat, so she wore an Erdem silk Sophia Visconti-bloom shift dress from the Resort 2013 collection.

She teamed her dress with navy-blue suede pumps, a navy clutch and her glossy locks.

Let’s pray the sun comes out for all her official engagements so we will get to see plenty more of her maternity style sans coat.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Mulberry – National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Mulberry - National Review of Queen's Scouts at Windsor Castle

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle on Sunday.

With spring in the air, I was delighted to see her wearing a pretty tweed Mulberry coat from the Spring 2013 collection.

The classic-cut coat with oversized patch pockets, frayed edges and gold flower buttons was worn with a broderie anglaise dress underneath.

Despite her efforts to conceal her growing baby, at 6-months pregnant her relatively small bump is clearly visible.

After giving them a rest for a while, her nude LK Bennett pumps are back. She also styled her Mulberry coat with Kiki McDonough earrings, an LK Bennett clutch and a Whiteley hat.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Malene Birger – 150th Anniversary of the London Underground

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Malene Birger - 150th Anniversary of the London Underground

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was out again today fulfilling her duties with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who were out in London today to celebrate 150 years of the city’s Underground.
The trio visited Baker Street Underground Station this morning, where they actually boarded a tube.

The Queen looked splendid, wearing a Karl Ludwig collarless cream outfit with a matching hat by Angela Kelly.

Meanwhile, the mum-to-be wore a striking teal Malene Birger coat dress – with black accessories, of course – but her best accessory was the “Baby on Board!” pin.

If she was treated like any of the other pregnant women I see wearing this pin on the tube, she would either be totally ignored, as other patrons don’t want to give up their seats, or she would, despite the pin, have to point out that she is pregnant in order to get a seat.

Yes, this really does happen.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Emilia Wickstead - St Patrick's Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended a St Patrick’s Day parade by the 1st Battalion Irish Guards as she visited Aldershot Barracks on Sunday in Aldershot, England with her husband, Prince William.

Showing – somewhat – her baby bump, the Duchess donned a forest-green coat dress by one of her favoured designers: Emilia Wickstead.

The coat, which she also wore on St Patrick’s Day 2012, was decorated with a shamrock brooch.

Sporting a rare and elaborate updo, the Duchess wore a black John Locke hat, which was also worn back in March, 2012.

Keeping herself warm on a cold and wet Sunday afternoon, Catherine wore a black turtleneck and black tights, completing her look with black gloves.

The highlight of the day was when one of Catherine’s heels got caught one in a grate and had to be rescued by her husband, while the officers continued to salute.

She carried off the incident gracefully and with a smile.
