In October last year, Kate Middleton’s intractable nausea, vomiting, and dehydration symptoms subsided, and the duchess made a strong impression in a Jenny Packham gown at the Wildlife Photography of the Year Awards.

In her second trimester, Kate Middleton wore plenty of blue, raising speculation that she’s expecting another son. While visiting Wales in on November 8, 2014, the duchess opted for a Matthew Williamson pale blue coat, with black tights, tall boots and a black clutch. The form-fitting coat also highlighted her growing baby bump.
The next day, Kate Middleton’s second pregnancy style went a bit more on the somber side, when she made a public appearance in London at the event dedicated to honoring veterans. Dressed in a black Alexander McQueen coat and a matching hat designed by Jane Corbett, the duchess added a pop of color to her look by wearing a red poppy brooch, a gift that she received from a British soldier’s wife.

After plenty of blue and black, the duchess of Cambridge visited the East Anglia Children’s Hospice in a more colorful dress. Kate wore a red Katherine Hooker dress and skipped the coat, even though the weather allowed for it.

As the duchess attended the annual Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in March 2015, pink was added to Kate Middleton’s second pregnancy style. Her pink Alexander McQueen coat was perfectly matched with her Jane Taylor fascinator. Catherine also opted for pink Prada pumps ad a matching clutch. Looking back, the all pink look may have been an omen regarding Princess Charlotte.
