The Duchess of Cambridge calls on Jenny Packham once again
Attention! The Royal Bump is on the move!
The Duchess of Cambridge continued to make other pregnant women feel inferior today with another faultless appearance in high heels at a service at Westminster Abbey to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
Fans of Kate's style may recognise the Jane Taylor hat she chose for the occasion - it's the same one she wore for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee service last year. Back then she teamed it with a lacy Alexander McQueen dress (oft copied since - grab the most obvious homage here).
This time around, the royal baby bump called for a slighly less form-fitting style. British designer Jenny Packham did the honours, with a custom-designed empire waist dress and pale peach edge-to-edge jacket. Packham is responsible for some of Kate's most memorable outfits, perhaps most notably her teal lace-backed gown from the London Olympic gala - one of Catwalk Queen's most-pinned celebrity photos of all time.
The shoes are, of course, her ever-faithful nude LK Bennett numbers (Sledge shoe in light taupe - £195 - how long until they give in and rename them 'The Catherine'?). If these heels are comfy enough for a pregnant woman to wear, perhaps we should all take Kate's lead and invest?
