Kate Middleton was showing off her gorgeous baby bump in its full glory this morning as she strode into Westminster Abbey for the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation service.
Wearing a bespoke lace Jenny Packham dress and matching duster coat in pale pink, the Duchess of Cambridge looked happy and radiant as she took her place on the front row with husband Prince William, brother-in-law Prince Harry and the rest of the royal family. Today will be the first time the royal couple have attended a public event at the Abbey since their wedding there two years ago. Aw!
Kate accessorised her gorgeously delicate dress with a nude clutch, patent court shoes and a pair of diamond earrings said to have been given to her by Prince Charles as a wedding present. The mum-to-be also wore a blush-coloured Jane Taylor pillarbox hat with a net veil, worth an estimated £910 – the same hat she wore for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations last summer!
The Queen arrived for her anniversary celebrations in a pale gold dress with a pleated bottom, while the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, also rocked a pale shade, sporting a nipped-in coat in egg-shell blue with a lace-trimmed hat. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie also joined the 200-guest-strong service, with the Duke of Edinburgh noticably absent due to ill health.
Kate, who is eight months pregnant, has been given leave to skip the Dean of Westminster’s private celebratory lunch this afternoon as she returns home for some much-needed rest before giving birth next month. Her final public outing is expected to be at the naming of a Princess Cruise Ship on June 13 in Southampton.
