Kate Middleton has proved just how much she loves the British high street by stepping out in a Topshop dress for her visit to the Child Bereavement Centre offices in Saunderton yesterday.
The pregnant Duchess Of Cambridge showed off her blossoming baby bump in a cream wool coat by Goat, with black suede gloves, black tights and her trusty black suede court shoes. Underneath, she wore a black Topshop shift dress with a white Peter Pan collar, which she teamed with pearl drop earrings.
Kate’s five-and-a-half-month baby bump was clearly visible under the high street dress and she was more than happy to discuss her pregnancy with well-wishers.
The royal was given teddy bears by members of the crowd, while Prince William was over the moon when he was printed with a bouquet of flowers. He told the woman: “I never get flowers any more, I just get cold hands!”
Inside, the couple met our favourite cook, Mary Berry, who lost her own son in a tragic car accident in 1989 when he was just 19. William told her: “My wife is a big fan of yours – and my tummy is a bigger fan!” He also admitted that his favourite cakes are chocolate brownies and confessed: “I think I need some lessons.”
He added: “You’ve been very busy racing around the country feeding the population.” While Kate said: “I’m a big fan of your cook books and your cakes.” Don’t we all!
Mary is a long-time patron of the charity, which helps families who have lost or are facing the loss of a child.
It will have been a very emotional visit for Kate, whose first baby is due in July. But she held it together like a true pro, supporting her hubby Wills as he discussed the death of his own mum, Princess Diana, when he was only 15.
The centre, and the locals, seemed so touched by the royal couple’s kind comments and wishes. There’s nothing like a visit from Kate and Wills to put a smile on people’s faces… RM
