Kate Middleton Shopping For Maternity Clothes Photo 3
thanks! great pics, i guess the big umbrella helped kate not being recognised very much by the people shopping.

i think she looks lovely in those kitten heels. if i am not mistaken, she's carrying the nightingale givenchy bag.

is that her bodyguard then? i read her female protection officer is also pregnant so maybe she momentarily changed to this protection officer.

She looks lovely indeed although really skinny.


I believe he is one of her bodyguards. She has not only a female protection officer She usually goes shopping accompanied by a blonde lady who is her protection officer too.

I know, she's trying everything in the world to hide her bump. I think the only time you might see it is when she's on official engagements.

I really don't think so. She's at the point now where she knows she needs maternity fashions and also at the point where her everyday regular clothes will be feeling a bit tight and uncomfortable on her. She's not hiding anything. She's dressed comfortably with room for expansion is all.

I've noticed three basic approaches to modern maternity dressing:
  • Look, look, look at my bump - the tight clothes make that a focus
  • I'm pregnant and practical. I'll wear comfy clothes and not seek the center of all attention
  • I'm on a budget -and so am making my old wardrobe stretch as long as I can and adding pieces as I go along.
Most of my friends are in the third group, so I naturally appreciate people who see maternity dressing as a practical problem, rather than an opportunity to buy more clothes.



And if Catherine started wearing a tight across the belly look all the time, I think I'd quit looking. Not that I find it a bad look - but Ms. Kardashian, Simpson, et al do it so well, why would one compete? I am sure Kate will sport the look at some time or another and it will look good on her. The press will go wild.



But I think most of the time she will continue to dress as she has - slightly subdued - in something flattering but not too daring and nothing garish. Fit for a Princess, rather than a reality show star.

I agree Maybe later this month we'll see it!

But she still could not have a 'proper' bump. I only displayed a bump when I was around 15/16 weeks pregnant.

Maybe because she's uncomfortable having her body scrutinized by the world? I know I would be.

I agree also and know that baby bumps can only be concealed for a short time. I am hoping she will become more comfortable with her body as it changes. Pregnant women are beautiful, too.

She could be very comfortable with her body and STILL not want her stomach to become world headline news every time she leaves the house.

I think most people would be a bit creeped out to have something so personal discussed on that scale.

Honestly, if she chooses to drape herself in very loose fitting garments for her whole pregnancy, I won't blame her one bit.

I have a slight issue with these photos (and the others that have been shown recently). How can she be "well enough" to go shopping etc. but isn't carrying out engagements? I understand she obviously felt very unwell, but it's photographs like this that give the public a bad image of her as it looks like she is well enough to go shopping and buy things, but not well enough to go and do an engagement once in a while. She isn't the first pregnant Royal wife and she wont be the last. I know it's reported she'll be carrying out engagements soon, but c'mon. That really bothers me and I know it's not going to be well received, but it's my opinion and it's an opinion widely thought among the general public who think she is "lazy".

On a side note, I like her coat but I cannot believe how expensive it is! I read on Tumblr that it has a hefty price tag and was quite shocked. One thing I would hate is being followed by a PPO all the time. Obviously it's for her safety, but sometimes you just want to be alone, particularly if you feel unwell, yet she has to have someone with her all the time. Suppose it's what she signed up for.

As regards to her bump, no doubt we'll be seeing plenty of it in the future so I don't mind waiting.

I am not sure but I did read that she was apparently holding meeting with charities now, but not sure when an actual engagement is to take place.

This month. I expect SJP to announce some engagements this week.

They say she'll start again with the charities she choose last year

It's been pointed out many times on this thread that there's a very big difference between the two. Her nausea probably comes in waves- she probably IS fine sometimes and then very sick on other days, and it's probably fairly unpredictable. She can go shopping or grab lunch with her parents with no prior planning- if she wakes up feeling ok that day, she can go for it.

Planning an official engagement is a lot of work. She can't just show up on the day when she's feeling well- it has to be planned in advance, lots of security set up, lots of people looking forward to seeing her. What if that's one of her bad days? She'd be disappointing a lot of people and causing a lot of hassle.

I'm sure her team is aware of this. I also think that cutting her some slack during her pregnancy would be kind.

Article from the EXpress today about how Catherine has been working with The Art Room, one of her charities.

Remember, just cos we don't see her, it doesn't mean she's idle.
