Bumpwatch: Royals Edition will evidently never cease until an heir to the throne is born.
And tonight was no exception as Duchess Catherine, aka Kate Middleton, joined Prince William and her in-laws at a concert at Royal Albert Hall benefiting the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and the Prince's Trust (named after their granddad, Prince Phillip).
Middleton set hopes afire again by...wait for it...holding her clutch in front of her belly. Apparently that's exactly like pregnant sitcom stars holding pillows and plates of food and sitting down a lot when they're trying to mask a pregnancy.
The funny thing is, though...
Middleton cinched her $99 lace-accented Zara sheath (which is probably already sold-out) with a wide black belt.
So, when she was merely holding her purse off to the side, her waistline looked as tiny as always. The ever-stylish princess completed the look with a black Ralph Lauren jacket, black tights and heels.
Will, Kate, Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, had a private tête-à-tête with the evening's headliner, singer Gary Barlow, before making their way to the royal box to watch the concert.
The proceeds from the benefit are going to rebuild neighborhoods hit hardest by the London riots in August.
