The Royal baby is really, finally, almost here! Kate Middleton has checked into St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, London to give birth. Clarence House, the official source of information for all things Will and Kate, tweeted that Middleton was in “the early stages of labor.” That was six hours ago. So, really, it’s only a matter of time now.
While we wait patiently (lies, we’re not patient) for the royal heir to make his or her appearance–and change the world as we know it forever!–we thought this was an excellent time to reminisce about Middleton’s seemingly endless pregnancy and her flawless style throughout it. Throughout the last nine-plus months (that baby’s already gotten good at evading the paparazzi!), the Duchess has made nary a fashion misstep in terms of maternity wear. In fact, much of her well-documented pregnancy wardrobe hasn’t really been maternity wear at all. No doubt Kim Kardashian‘s tailor is jeally.
The start of her pregnancy may have been extra bump-y, but style-wise, the future Queen of England had smooth sailing from her very first trimester. She may not dress sexy enough for Roberto Cavalli, but that didn’t stop the world from picking apart (and fawning over) every ensemble she donned throughout. Some might even call it fascinating!
