Royal Baby News: Kate Middleton's Pregnancy In Pictures

Now the royal progeny is on its way, the Duchess of Cambridge will be soon hanging up those billowing maternity dresses and wriggling back into her skinny jeans.

The 31-year-old was hospitalised with severe morning sickness shortly after the announcement of her condition, but was positively blooming in the final months of her pregnancy.

Thrifty Kate was often spotted in off-the-peg High Street brands, including a £17.50 dress from ASOS, a £38 polka dot number from Top Shop (which she later wore again to a friend’s wedding) and a slightly pricier leopard print outfit at £169 from Hobbs.

For her last public appearance, the Duchess chose an elegant nude dress and matching coat from British designer Jenny Packham.

With her lithe build and sporty nature we guess it'll be no time at all before she's back in her jeggings.
