With Kate’s last pregnancy now winding down (her last public appearance was on Friday, March 27th) and the Great Kate Wait gearing up we thought it would be a fun trip down (albeit quite recent) memory lane to recap all of her pregnancy looks in one place.
We found out about Kate’s second pregnancy on September 8th, 2014 when Clarence House confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting a second baby! Kate, similar to her last pregnancy, is feeling unwell, again experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum. Because of this, William and Catherine made the difficult decision to announce the pregnancy very early on.
Here’s a full recap of Kate’s (fashion) pregnancy – and then scroll down for all the details of each and every event!
