Kate, duchess of Cambridge, appears in public with baby bump for first time


Kate, duchess of Cambridge, has surfaced in public and the duchess, who is now approximately four months pregnant, hid what paparazzi could only imagine was a growing baby bump, under a tartan-print cape during an outing in London on Jan. 30.

She also sported a ponytail, black leggings and boots.

This recent outing has been one of just a handful of public appearances the duchess has made since taking time off from her royal duties to rest after acute morning sickness sent her to the hospital in the early stages of her pregnancy.

Kate did appear at the unveiling of her first official portrait at the National Portrait Gallery in London in January. Though, her flowing dress at that appearance didn’t show off much of her pregnancy.

The public will get more opportunities to see the duchess, and her growing baby bump, in the near future. The duchess is reportedly well enough to take a Caribbean vacation and, on Tuesday, the palace announced that Kate would resume public appearances, with the next one scheduled at the charity Action on Addiction on Feb. 19.

“She wants to keep herself busy now that she is feeling better,” a source told gossip magazine US Weekly.

Kate and Prince William’s baby is due in July.
