Kate Middleton's baby bump seems to have popped out of nowhere. Just two days after covering her royal bump up at the Cheltenham Horse Races, the pregnant Duchess showed off her growing bump today (Sunday) at the annual St. Patrick's Day Military parade. While the weather was dreary, the Duchess, dressed in the same emerald green dress coat she wore to the event last year, was glowing in pictures obtained by Examiner.com.
The recycled look made for some impressive side-by-side photos, showing just how much Kate's baby bump has popped over the last few days. The Duchess changed up the look slightly by pairing the festive coat with black tights, black heels and a black collared dress. She also skipped the belt this year and What Kate Wore confirms she was wearing her black Lock & Co hat. Last year, she wore her brown Lock & Co. Betty Boop hat for the St. Patrick's Day Parade -- but it's no surprise she changed it up, as she pulled that out for the horse races on Friday.
At five months pregnant, the 31 year old duchess presented the shamrock sprigs to officers, including her husband. Prince William was not on hand for the 2012 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Aldershot as he was away for training in the Falkland Islands.
It's a good thing he was back this year, however, as his wife literally leaned on him after getting her heel caught in a street grate.
