I get the impression from her few engagements and her tired look, Charlene is having a difficult time during her pregnancy. She didnt look great in the black trouser suit

I'd love to see the whole outfit but I must say that the color looks fantastic on Charlene. I don't see any signs of tiredness.

Beautiful! (Only wish it was in a brighter color to liven up Charlene's complexion)

I can't even tell she's pregnant in this photo - there's some serious camouflage effect going on.

All the outfits Charlene wore on this trip so far are Carolina Herrera

The ombre effect on this dress is a clever way to disguise the pregnancy. I really liked the burgundy dress that she wore on the second day...lovely.

Wow! This latest outfit at the reception is really stunning! And being satin it must be really lovely to the touch. P Charlene takes maternity wear to a new level, cleverly disguising (not hiding) her pregnant curves with a subtle play with colour and cut. Darker colours always have a slimming effect. Her clothes have a slightly wider cut, but is still fairly tight fitting without accentuating her tummy. And of course still very stylish and elegant. Compliments to her designers!

She could not have chosen better. Carolina Herrera understands elegance and understatement like few other designers on the planet, imo.

However, I must add that I don't really understand the idea behind a happily pregnant, married woman wishing to minimize, camouflage, or "hide" her pregnancy.

What's the point?

A lot of women dont feel the need to show off their pregnancy bumps - they prefer modest clothes and I for one am glad to see Charlene following this route. I dont like alot of 'celebrities' in the media flauting their bumps in tight revealing clothing. It is just a personal thing that i dont like.

The dress for the Obama reception looks good on Charlene - i think often these type of clothes can be worn after birth. We have seen the Duchess of Cambridge do that wearing and adjusting clothes from her pre-pregnancy wardrobe during her pregnancy with George.

^^^ previous. I don't think she is purposely trying to hide her pregnancy, todays' pics at the Autism event prove that. She is wearing a lovely loose fitting outfit that clearly shows her pregnancy. And then she makes that typical gesture of a pregnant woman by placing her hands on her tummy and showing how pregnant she really is. I think she's more disguising it and by doing so remains very elegant and feminine. Compare her look to the latest pics of Kourtney Kardashian (!!) ("Pure People"). The Princess's look, I would say, is showing she's pregnant without flaunting it.

I don't like the current way of maternity dressing either. Pretty much reminds me of what used to be dubbed "trailer trash", where the women would just wear their husband's t-shirts. Yuk!

A ordinary pregnant without the medias around her to find something wrong during three years would not minimize her pregnancy , but Charlene had so many naughties rumors based on one photo or two will minimize her pregnancy to preserve herself from the medias to avoid the stress on her.

But I don't think she wants to minimize, there are a lot of baby bumps, small, big, medium, Charlene is tall and she was very slim before her pregnancy, she has the chance to wear still beautiful elegant cloths for not very pregnant women this chance that other pregnant women have not at this term.

To day, at the 'world focus on autism' she shows her baby bump and there is this photo where she is so proud to show her baby bump to attending persons in putting her hands on it.

Who said anything about flaunting bumps or showing off? I'm not discussing celebs who pose naked pregnant or who wear tight t-shirts at nine months. I don't like that either.

I'm simply confused about why a woman who is expecting a child would want to hide the fact, as if it's something distasteful or to be ashamed of.

For the record I think Charlene looked great in NYC. If, as melina-premiere posted, the princess simply feels self-conscious after so many years of intrusive and often unkind speculation about her pregnancy status, I completely understand why she doesn't want press and everyone else focusing on her stomach.

As if you can hide a big bump in the midsection of your body. Ain't got nothing to do with hiding or showing off. I think it's such a bullsh.t statement that some pregnant women ''flaunt'' it by wearing tight clothes. Her choice, her body and a pregnancy isn't shocking. Get over it.

Charlene has worn some lovely maternity clothes on this trip. There is a very different effect achieved by the outfit with the Obamas' and the blue outfit worn today. Both suit her well and I'm pleased to see her out and about.

Exactly. I don't see why a pregnant woman shouldn't wear tight clothes. Why should they be ashamed to show off their belly?

I haven't been impressed with Charlene's pregnant style, but I love this latest blue outfit. She looks beautiful in it.
