Mrs Cambridge attended a reception tonight at the National Portrait Gallery in London wearing an empire waist dress in eggshell blue. It’s decided then: longer hemlines without a coat, shorter hemlines with a coat on top.

It’s great to see her looking so healthy and strong, especially the way this pregnancy started. I love how animated she is in these photos. In some of them she seems like she’s actually greeting someone with a “HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII OMG it’s SO GREAT to see you!” the way a commoner might. Cute, non?
