Perhaps Kate wants to show off her legs because she's losing her waistline and is capitalizing on showcasing a great feature of hers. The color is beautiful and her hat is adorably perky. And I must say that the Queen rocked her own outfit today; she looked marvelous!

She's losing her waistline? 5 months pregnant and she can fit into (guessing) size 10 topshop? Lucky.

Well, I did say losing - it's not completely lost yet! And she's quite thin that she's still wearing items that are regular wear but of a looser fit. Lucky indeed.

I think both coats are to die for. Yesterday she looked lovely but I'm one of those that thinks it's way TOO short. Today it was better. In any case, she looked great in both ocasions.

Lumutqueen, about the dress being too short because it wasn't meant to fit a pregnancy bump, that's no excuse. When it starts to happen to clothes, it's time to start to look for maternity clothes, I suppose.

Maybe she could call Victoria of Sweden up and borrow some of the sacks she wore when she was pregnant.

I think both looks are quite lovely on Catherine. The coats are elegant, and look great on her. She certainly has a figure for them.

I think The Duchess' fashion sourcing (however and whomever from wherever) is spectacular. I doubt Mary handed it down - but it would be no surprise if someone had noticed Mary's coat and how the cut and the vertical trim really made a great maternity look.

Aah, but as I recall they were above the knee.

I liked the last two coats Catherine has worn however, I was faintly appalled at the fact that the collar on the white coat belonged to the dress worn beneath. Worse, it looked like a school uniform and, not being maternity wear, hitched up in the front.

Todays offering was a brilliant colour and her overall style seems to be greatly improving. The cut of the coat was flattering and her accessories very chic.

However, I am going to go out on a limb here and join the "but they were both too short" brigade. I know that Catherine is long in the leg, a fact emphasised by the showing of the photo of CP Mary wearing the very same coat, but on her it seemed at least two inches or more longer. And, strangely enough, she was not considered dowdy, Victorian nor wearing anything close to a burqa!

Catherine is in a position to wear clothing that both flatters and suits her. Her height nor her length of leg should not be an issue as she has even high street designers that would be more than willing to make "one off" variations to accommodate her height. That she does not is her choice and it is a choice that is not one a lot of people feel altogether comfortable with.

I guess we will see how things go when she moves into actual "maternity" wear.

I don't see a problem with coat lengths it's not like she's naked underneath.

I suppose the question is whether Kate is comfortable with her choices. If so, then that's the most important thing.

Indeed. I think the best solution at this point is perhaps for her to just begin her confinement in the palace. Best for a pregnant woman not to be seen in public!

I say Kate keep wearing what you are wearing, don't buy those mumus that Victoria wore.

Her bump is not huge, she can fit well in most (if not all) of her coats, if I was in her shoes I'd do the same thing, why buy when you have plenty of them to use? However, I'm getting very excited because I want to see her in actual maternity clothes, but for now she doesn't need to but eventually she will. (And probably sooner than we might think)

As for the scouts this Friday, I'm sure she will wear casual and comfortable clothes as she did previously in the same event.
And lately we've had a lot of Catherine, didn't we? I'm loving the last couple of weeks, I hope she continues this active in the following month.

Actually Kate is now HUGE. She is so long waisted that her pregnancy expansion looks less like a "bump" than a general all-over expansion. She will probably have a large baby. Very large. It will indeed be fascinating to see what clothes she wears when she cannot wear the older coats at all without letting them hang open in front. I expect some nice shorter jackets paired with maternity skirts. Something like Diana wore, but less frou-frou. Diana's maternity clothes had too many ruffles and bows, things she would not have worn when she became more aware of her own style. But the jackets and maternity skirt idea has worked well for women for a long time and will be fine now. The real bump is just around the corner!

"Huge" is a bit of an overstatement, IMO. Kate has definitely gained a bit of weight all over - to be expected with any pregnancy, but especially as she was quite thin to begin with, and also because of the illness she dealt with at the start of her pregnancy. I think she looks better than ever.

As she gets further into pregnancy, I too am curious to see what she will wear, but I don't think it'll be anything like what Diana wore. Maternity styles have changed tremendously in the past 30 years; there are so many more options now.
