Kate Middleton's pregnancy style predictions have taken up dozens of column inches since the big announcement.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who's now entering her second trimester, could be at the stage where she's starting to invest in her maternity wardrobe - if the latest rumours are anything to go by.

Prince William's wife was reportedly spied at her favourite shopping haunt, Chelsea's King's Road, where she was searching for some chic maternity wear.

Making us wonder if she's finally starting to show a slight bump (we feel we've been waiting an age for this owing to the early pregnancy announcement), Kate was said to be searching the rails for some comfy jeggings.

A fellow King's Road shopper reported that they spied the Duchess in Gap looking for said jeggings.

The source revealed: "She was looking for jeggings, as she said she liked very skinny jeans."

Sadly Kate left the store empty-handed - maybe they didn't have her size, we hate it when that happens - but didn't seem too disheartened.

She was later seen nipping into Prêt a Manger for a quick coffee, as she continued her search.

The Duchess of Cambridge was said to have wrapped up in a shawl for the chilly outing in London, later heading into Sloane Square to check out the shops.

A royal spokesperson for Kate - who has thankfully overcome her extreme morning sickness - recently revealed she is due to give birth in July, meaning she's in her second trimester.

All eyes have thus been signs of a baby bump, with her recent shopping outing meaning she could be at that stage when waistbands are becoming a bit uncomfortable.

That or the Duchess could simply just be getting in on the trend for jeggings which we would fully understand, seeing as we own dozens of pair of these comfortable creations.
