The Duchess of Cambridge's baby bump will reportedly be dressed by some of her closest friends in the fashion industry. According to new reports Princess Kate has called in two designer friends to design fashionable maternity clothes for the most-watched bump in the world. The Daily Mail reports Kate Middleton has commissioned Natasha Rufus Isaacs and Lavinina Brennan, co-founders of Beulah London, to design a maternity wardrobe fit for the royal bump. "She’s determined to remain fashionable between now and the birth and doesn’t want to be seen as frumpy," a friend of the Duchess' is quoted as saying.
Noticeably absent from the list of designers is Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton. Kate Middleoton is often seen wearing her creations including at her April 2011 royal wedding. However, as Examiner.com previously reported, Sarah Burton is expecting twins this month. She even pulled out of Paris Fashion Week to prepare for her double bundles of joy. Despite her own pregnancy, in December Burton revealed she would like to dress pregnant Kate -- and perhaps she will still have the chance.
At an estimated 19 or 20 weeks into her pregnancy, Kate Middleton's baby bump is still small. However, photos of the bikini-clad Duchess in Mustique last week revealed her bump is growing and she'll require maternity clothes soon -- if she doesn't already.
