Pregnant Kate Middleton was carrying more than her unborn baby while on a London shopping trip Tuesday. The Duchess of Cambridge was seen out in casual clothes wearing jeans, sneakers, and a tweed jacket. Her hair was swept up and she had a checkered scarf to keep her warm from the rainy, cold weather. The Duchess was seen holding shopping bags after visiting the Design Centre for home furnishings.
This is one of Kate’s more rare appearances out in public doing casual activities since she’s been pregnant.
A source told E! News that the Duchess had breakfast at the Dome Cafe in Chelsea Harbour at about 11 a.m. After that, she was seen at the Design Centr in Chelsea Harbour. She reportedly was looking at lighting.
When the Duchess was finished there, she ventured over to Lots Road and was said to stay there just under an hour.
Kate Middleton was well protected by her security guards as she made her way through the Chelsea town. She appeared to be enjoying her outing shopping for cool things to put in Kensington Palace.
Kate’s due date was released in the press last week as being July 13. A friend of a friend overheard someone say at a barbecue say Prince William and Kate’s baby is due on that date. The palace hasn’t released an official date, however. It really doesn’t matter since babies are hardly ever born on their due date.
The world is excited for the arrival of William and Kate’s first child. It’s unknown whether she’s having a boy or a girl, but there’s speculation the royal couple is expecting a girl.
Until pregnant Kate gives birth, her every move and baby bump fashion will be closely watched.
