When they announced their third pregnancy via an official statement from Kensington Palace in September, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge caught the fashion world somewhat off-guard. International fashion weeks were imminent but there was now a whole other wardrobe to consider. Kate, who is now in third trimester kept her wardrobe relatively muted at the start of her pregnancy, but has now begun to inject bright hues back into her wardrobe.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met crowds of well-wishers in Sunderland today as they visited a new music and arts hub in the city.

As the nation awaits the arrival of the third royal baby, take a look back at some of Kate Middleton's best maternity style moments.
The ‘Meghan Markle Effect ‘ is sweeping the globe sending her go-to garments and accessories flying from the shelves. But it’s hardly surprising, as the royal-to-be is following in future sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge ‘s footsteps with her every sartorial move victim to the camera lens. And a headline, two Instagram snaps and a shopping article later, her latest get-up manages sells out faster than the last. Whether it’s a Strathberry bag on the crook of her arm or a bell-sleeved knit fresh from the high street, there’s no trend the nation won’t buy into.

By swapping evening gowns for slick suits and eschewing the traditional clutch in favour of handbag heavyweight Chloé, the royal-to-be is bringing a whole new meaning to upper class fashion one label at a time.

Oops! Duchess Kate suffered a wardrobe mishap on Wednesday when she got her heel stuck in a metal drain grate (you can check out the photos here) on her way to open a new addiction treatment center, Action on Addiction, of which she is a patron.
Feast your eyes on the best photos from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal tour of Sweden and Norway - and all of Kate's fashion choices.
The 36-year-old royal paired an expensive Chanel handbag with a Catherine Walker red, houndstooth coat on day two of her royal tour of Sweden.
Hollywood stylists frequently talk about the art of setting a fashion pace on a press tour; the actress in question may have to promote their film at seven or eight different events, beginning with more casual occasions and leading up to a frothy finale gown or two. As she arrived in Sweden this morning to begin her official tour of Scandinavia, the Duchess of Cambridge began her own, royal version of such an effort, her aide Natasha Archer no doubt having worked for weeks to deliver a pitch-perfect outfit for every occasion that Kate’s schedule should demand in the coming days, as she and the Duke of Cambridge navigate sports in Stockholm, ribbon cutting in Oslo, and dinners with Scandi cinema royalty and actual royalty. Arriving to play hockey this morning, Kate, who is seven months pregnant, wore a black Burberry coat, chunky snow boots by ski brand Sorel, and a faux fur bobble hat by Eugenia Kim. She also nodded to her host nation by wearing a burgundy jumper from Swedish label Fjallraven. The Duchess of Cambridge wearing a Burberry coat this morning In her second act, the Duchess changed for lunch with the King and Queen of Sweden, their daughter Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel.

(Lead image) Duchess of Cambridge: every outfit ever Today’s wow-moment, though, will undoubtedly be tonight; a black tie dinner with Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander should surely warrant a new gown? Vikander’s weapon of choice is usually Louis Vuitton, while Par Engsheden is the Swedish royal family’s go-to couturier. Kate could turn to one of her trusted allies (Alexander McQueen or Erdem, perhaps) but preferably, she might offer up a wild card from a Scandi minimalist.
