Kate Middleton has been keeping her baby bump in hiding -- but likely not for much longer. With only her second official royal duty planned for Feb. 19, the royal baby bump may finally come out of hiding. The Duchess of Cambridge is slated to visit London's Hope House and the New York Post reports Tuesday it's likely Kate Middleton's baby bump will be on "official display."
As promised, the Duchess is starting to return to public royal duties this month, after a bout with acute morning sickness in December. It's believed she's now around 19 or 20 weeks along in her pregnancy and could very well be starting to show. However, considering her height and the fact that she very likely lost weight early in her pregnancy, due to her condition, Kate's baby bump may still be very small.
Regardless of if there's a legitimate bump or just a shadow on her dress, all eyes will be on the Kate Middleton baby bump during her upcoming appearance. The event, less than two weeks from today, will be only the second official outing for Kate this year. Since making the pre-mature pregnancy announcement in early December, the Duchess has only made a handful of (official and unofficial) appearances including leaving the hospital, a couple of holiday parties, attending Boxing Day at Sandringham, the BBC Sports Personality Awards and the Jan. 11 unveiling of her first official royal portrait.
