Kate Middleton made what is expected to be her final public appearance today, before starting her maternity leave, at the Trooping The Colour in London. (Yes, yes, we know we said that her public appearance on Thursday in Southampton was her final one. That was, er, her final solo appearance.)
Eight months pregnant, Kate Middleton had that stereotypical gorgeous ‘pregnant glow’ today, wearing a pale pink Alexander McQueen coat, said to be custom made for her. The coat, with a wide collar and oversized pearl buttons was accessorised with a Jane Corbett hat that Kate previously wore to a Buckingham Palace garden party in 2012.
The annual event, which marks the Queen’s official birthday, saw over 1000 horses and soldiers take part. The day certainly seemed to have a jolly jovial atmosphere, with Kate, Prince William, Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie all exchanging laughs as they stood on the Buckingham Palace balcony.
From today, Kate will focus on resting (probably a good idea, considering she has only a few weeks before her due date) and the last minute preparations that all mums-to-be have. We hope she has her hospital bag packed and ready!
