Second Best: Kate Middleton’s Maternity Looks

Sleek, minimal and non-fussy: that pretty much sums up the Duchess of Cambridge’s approach to dressing during her second pregnancy.

Much of her official duties during this time have been during the winter months, so there were lots of coats. This being the grey, rainy United Kingdom, she broke out the pastels to give a cheery look to her proceedings.

And she might be royalty and a future queen but she is also practical-minded and not above wearing the same outfit twice – as she often has in the past.

As royal watchers tried to guess the gender of the forthcoming offspring, Kate kept them guessing as she donned both pale pink and blue coats during her trimester.
