Why, yes, that is a royal bump!
Pregnant Kate Middleton met with a group of young athletes Wednesday at a SportsAid workshop held in West London. The duchess, wearing a formfitting plum dress by Goat and sheer black tights, completed her look with chic but comfy looking black boots as she toured the GSK Human Performance Lab used by the 2020 Tokyo Olympic hopefuls!
Clarence House tweeted a handful of pictures of Prince George's mum, "a keen sportswoman herself," who joined swimmer Keri-Anne Payne and Paralympian David Weir for a tour of the training facilities. Per The Mirror, Kate, 32, tested out a piece of training equipment used to test hand-eye coordination, joking to the audience it was "something you can do when you're pregnant!"
As you can see, the duchess's repeated bouts with hyperemesis gravidarum, a form of severe morning sickness, appear to be behind her. Earlier in the day, James Middleton confirmed to Good Morning America's Amy Robach that his sister is, indeed, "on the mend!"
As for those rumors that Kate might be planning a trip to New York soon? Well, GMA told James they'd heard something about that, to which he replied laughingly, "I've heard that, too!"
After fumbling back and forth for a moment, he ultimately remained tightlipped, saying of his sister's plans, "I really don't know."
Us commoners will keep our fingers crossed!
