After joining the Royal family for a pre-Christmas lunch today at Buckingham Palace, Kate Middleton stepped out with Prince William at an awards ceremony for members of the British military tonight in London. She wore a strapless black velvet McQueen gown with some subtle frills along the bustline, and accessorized with a matching black clutch and lots of jewelry — a large necklace featuring pink gems, a chunky bracelet, and teardrop earrings. Without a jacket, she must have been very cold, but the form-fitting look definitely puts those pregnancy rumors to bed, for now.
