The royal baby bump is almost ready for its closeup! After several very low-key weeks, a more voluptious Kate Middleton was finally spotted — and photographed — in London this past Wednesday, Jan. 30. Visiting a Boots store in West London, the Duchess of Cambridge sported a noticeably growing belly — which she attempted to conceal with a tartan shawl — and a fuller face. Prince William's wife stayed warm during the outing with a scarf, black leggings and boots.
Due in July, the Duchess, now fully recovered from the acute morning sickness that plagued the early days of her pregnancy, is now "arranging meetings with the charities she is involved with and planning future engagements before the baby is born," a royal source told Us Weekly. "She wants to keep herself busy now that she is feeling better."
That also means shopping! Last Monday the beloved royal was seen shopping for workout clothes at the Selfridge's department store in London — buying a pair of yoga leggings and checking out the sweaters by her favorite brand, Reiss.
She's also stocked up on maternity clothes, picking up items at JoJo Maman Bebe, a London boutique, and ordering goodies from Asos Maternity Line.
