Pregnant Kate Middleton Shows Baby Bump, Shops in Topshop [PHOTOS]
During her visit in Grimsby, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wore a burgundy romper that slightly showed her bulging belly and continues her "practical" fashion ways.
At her 21st week of pregnancy, the Duchess has been trying to keep the early stages private. Unfortunately, paparazzi and onlookers are always on the prowl to snap images of the soon-to-be-mom Duchess.
Just recently, Kate was photographed wearing a bikini showing her baby bump without her permission. Luckily for fans, her official appearance today at Grimsby gave the world a glimpse of how "big" her tummy is now.
A well-wisher named Bobbi Brown, asked the Duchess if she felt the baby moving or kicking. The Duchess gladly replied positively and said,
"Yes it is, very much so." This is a relief considering the Duchess has undergone a difficult vomiting stage during the first weeks of her pregnancy.
Another well-wisher, MP Austin Mitchell's wife, Linda, revealed that she saw the Duchess walking around in affordable fashion store, Topshop.
"I saw her in Topshop last Wednesday." said the MP's wife in a report by The Mirror.
"She had handfuls of clothes. When I saw her today I asked her if she bought anything and she said a few bits and bobs. I said I was going to say hello but didn't want to bother her and she said: 'Oh no that would have been wonderful'."
It has also been hinted that the Duchess will have a baby girl during her visit in Grimsby. When given a toy bear, the Duchess quipped,
"Thank you, I'll take that for my d-" stopping mid-sentence when she was about to pronounce the word "daughter."
