Princess Kate Middleton, who's pregnant with her first child, looked radiant and super-slender at the unveiling of her first official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery in London Jan. 11.
The willowy Kate wore a belted burgundy dress that accentuated her tiny waist and lithe limbs. Judging by Middleton's sleek 5-foot-10 figure, it's hard to tell that she's currently in her second trimester of pregnancy.
Most pregnant women start showing by this time, but then again, the athletic Kate, 31, isn't like most women. The size-two Middleton is a fitness fanatic who works out at least an hour a day and follows a healthy, portion-controlled diet.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, looked healthy and happy at the portrait unveiling after being hospitalized last month for extreme morning sickness that caused severe dehydration and nausea.
After canceling several appearances due to her hyperemesis gravidarum diagnosis, Middleton is back to her usual healthy self. Kate is said to be pleased with her first official portrait (by Scottish artist Paul Emsley).
Meanwhile, the bizarre painting is being slammed by art critics and the public alike for making the beautiful, youthful Middleton look chubby and old.
