Now five months pregnant, The Duchess of Cambridge has been proving her knack for reworking pieces from her pre-pregnancy wardrobe to accommodate her burgeoning bump. This weekend she stepped out at the St. Patrick's Day parade at the Aldershot Barracks in the very same coat she wore to last year's celebrations.
While in 2012 Kate Middleton wrapped the emerald-green Emilia Wickstead dress coat around and secured it with a patent belt, this year it was buttoned into place to accommodate her petite bump. With a rather more rainy forecast on the cards, the Duchess of Cambridge swapped bare legs and a plunging neckline for a high neck dress, opaques, black lady gloves and matching Emmy courts. Like last year, she completed the look with the Queen Mother's gold shamrock brooch. Her black Lock & Co hat was replaced by a smaller black corsage number to show off a pretty, intricate updo.
Of course, the questions on everyone's lips at the parade were about the royal baby, and one of the guards quizzed Kate about the baby's sex, prompting her to reveal that she did not yet know whether it was a boy or a girl, but that she would "like to have a boy and William would like a girl."
We're sure the royal couple will be thrilled with either.
