Kate Middleton’s Baby Bump Makes Its Official Debut


After appearing on last week's covers of Star, Italy's Chi magazine, and Australia's Woman's Day while on holiday in Mustique, the Royal Baby Bump made its official debut in London today. For the occasion, it wore a MaxMara Studio wrap dress, marked down to $195 at Matches Fashion (it's now sold out).

Kate spent the morning at London's Hope House, "a residential centre for women run by Action on Addiction, of which she is Patron," the Telegraph writes. There, she told a participant in an art therapy session: "Well done for getting sober."

According to USA Today, her next public engagement is scheduled for March 5, when "Kate will travel to the once-bustling fishing port of Grimsby on the north east coast, a town in decline but still the busiest fish-processing center in the U.K." She plans to check out the National Fishing Heritage Center (the smell! We're already nauseated for her), open a school, and get to know the town's fire-and-rescue teams.
