“Kate”s lucky in that she can wear anything, but I hope she embraces her bump. With her stature and figure, fitted clothes look so much better than flowing ones.
He added: “I don”t think she”ll wear stretchy Lycra, but I hope she shows her bump in a subtle, elegant way.”
To do that, Kate will rely on the delicate, feminine palette of her go-to designers – think Beulah or Orla Kiely – to get the look right .
