After Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, announced her second pregnancy, fashionistas rejoiced, since her maternity looks were definitely some of her best outfits. Will the duchess top her style evolution with her second pregnancy?
Check out Kate Middleton’s best maternity looks and choose your favorite outfit. If Prince George helped Kate’s style, the new prince or princess will definitely do the same, making the duchess the most fashionable pregnant woman on the planet. Here are her best maternity looks of the duchess from 2013:
60th Anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation
Looking truly regal for Queen Elizabeth II’s anniversary held at Westminster Abbey, Catherine opted for a Jenny Packman look.
The look was definitely muted, both the lace dress and the matching jacket, and even the veiled fascinator complemented her monochromatic look.
Princess Cruises Naming of the Ship Ceremony
One iconic third trimester outfit was the duchess’ Hobbs Dalmatian-print coat worn at the christening ceremony for the new Princess Cruises ship, the Royal Princess. It’s definitely one of Kate Middleton’s best maternity looks, and was perfectly styled with a black Sylvia Fletcher hat, along with a white clutch and black pumps.
Queen Elizabeth II’s Royal Garden Party
Sticking to coat dresses for most of her second and third trimester, Kate chose to go with a sweet yellow and white combination for the Queen’s Buckingham Palace garden party in May 2013. The duchess wore a Emilia Wickstead Marella silk coat, paired with a Jane Corbett hat, and kept accessories simple, with nude pumps and a matching clutch.
Warner Bros. Studios Inauguration
One of Kate Middleton’s best maternity looks, the Topshop dress she wore for the inauguration of Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden cost only £38 ($61) and it was sold out in less than an hour. To turn it into a duchess-worthy look, Kate paired it with a Ralph Lauren blazer and black suede pumps.

Catherine’s Second Wedding Anniversary
Instead of throwing a lavish party for her second wedding anniversary, Kate Middleton visited the Naomi House Children’s Hospice. The most beautiful piece of her look was the Tara Jarmon peach coat, worn over a pastel peach dress that showed off her baby bump. The finishing details were the L.K. Bennett nude pumps and matching clutch.
Art Room Charity Gala
The choice of a baby-blue Emilia Wickstead dress for a charity event at the National Portrait Gallery also turned out to be one of Kate Middleton’s best maternity looks. When it comes to the baby bump, this was probably her most revealing look, paired with Rupert Sanderson suede pumps.
National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle
One of the Duchess of Cambridge’s best maternity looks, her tweed Mulberry coat may have been worn to hide the baby bump, but the 6 months pregnant Kate glowed in the Spring 2013 creation. Paired with her signature nude pumps, with a nude clutch, and a Whiteley hat.
Willows Primary School in Manchester
Visiting Manchester, the duchess switched things up from her usual pregnancy coats and wore a silk Erdem dress from the Resort 2013 collection. The shift dress was paired with navy pumps and a clutch, making one of Kate Middleton’s best maternity looks. But the star of the look was definitely the duchess’ hair, worn down.
150th Anniversary of the London Underground
Going on an official tour on the London Underground on its 150th anniversary, Kate Middleton opted for a blue Malene Birger coat dress. With a black beret, black tights, pumps and gloves, the look could have ended up as reading too formal. Luckily it was saved by the “Baby on Board” pin, worn by pregnant women on the subway in order to get a better chance at sitting down during the ride.
2013 St Patrick’s Day Parade
Wearing the same coat as she did a year before for St. Patrick’s Day, Catherine accessorized it with a cute brooch. The green Emilia Wickstead coat may have showed off her slim waist in 2012, but a year later it highlighted her baby bump. The duchess paired the green coat with all black: turtleneck, gloves, tights, shoes, and a John Locke hat.
