Kate’s Baby Bump Watch: First Look At Pregnant Princess!

After the newest young royal announced her pregnancy, Kate’s baby bump watch began — despite the fact that the Duchess of Cambridge was forced to reveal her condition far earlier than she had expected due to a bout of hyperemesis gravidarum.

But as Middleton enters her second trimester, Kate’s baby bump has been sighted as the worldwide sensation begins to shake off her severe illness and get out and about while she can.

Out maternity clothes-shopping in London, Kate’s baby bump remained hidden under a plaid parka as she flitted about looking well and healthy in skinny leggings and boots.

People reports that Kate’s condition was quietly evident as she bounced around the city, describing the recovering Duchess of Cambridge and her renewed health:

“With her hair back in a ponytail, the Duchess of Cambridge, 30, pulled her look together with a black scarf, black leggings and riding boots … The mother-to-be was also recently spotted in London’s Chelsea neighborhood shopping for jeggings at the Gap.”

Us Magazine was lucky enough to get the Kate’s baby bump scoop from a “royal insider,” and the mag says Middleton is trying to get things done lest she have another HG bout before the baby comes in the summer:

“Due in July, the Duchess, now fully recovered from the acute morning sickness that plagued the early days of her pregnancy, is now ‘arranging meetings with the charities she is involved with and planning future engagements before the baby is born,’ a royal source told Us Weekly. ‘She wants to keep herself busy now that she is feeling better.'”
