The Duchess of Cambridge (35) is expecting her third child with husband Prince William and made her second appearance today since announcing the baby news.
Middleton opted for a blush pink appliqué dress with black trim by her go-to Irish designer Orla Kiely as she was a surprise addition alongside William and Prince Harry at Paddington station in London this morning to meet the cast of the upcoming Paddington 2 movie. Royal watchers are in a tizzy as a teeny tiny baby bump was also visible, accentuated by her black velvet belt.
Kate finished off her look with a black clutch and matching block heels by L.K. Bennett.
The expectant mother was beaming and typical jovial humour as she danced with Paddington himself and appeared to over the worst of her Hyperemesis Gravidarum, the extreme morning sickness she has experienced during each of her pregnancies.
The Middletons have a long-standing appreciation with Kiely as Kate's mother Carole and sister Pippa are also fans of the Dubliner's work, but Kiely previously said she doesn't get advance notice if they will be wearing her designs.
"We don't know in advance, so it is a case of 'oh, holy smoke'," she told Ryan Tubridy earlier this year.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a grey pleated Orla Kiely dress in both 2012 and 2015, as well as a brown printed dress coat in 2012.
"It's lovely when anyone in the public eye wears something," said Orla, who received an honorary O.B.E. She [Kate Middleton] wears a dress beautifully."
