Duchess Kate Shows First Sign Of Baby Bump As She Visits Hope House

Baby bump alert! The Duchess of Cambridge visited Hope House, an addiction recovery centre for women, in South London on Tuesday and for the first time, she showed signs of her pregnancy.


Following the news that author Hilary Mantel recently criticised Kate in a lecture (the words "dead-eyed" and "mannequin" were used - ouch), Duchess Kate put on a brave face as she arrived at the centre in Clapham.

Despite the freezing cold weather, Kate shunned a coat for a blue and white print wrap dress from Maxmara and a pair of her favoured black stilettos.
