See Kate Middleton’s outfit—and baby bump!—up close »

It seems like it’s been forever since we last saw Kate Middleton at a public engagement—especially given that everyone is clamouring for a glimpse of that royal baby bump! But today we finally got to see how the Duchess of Cambridge is embracing maternity wear, thanks to a morning spent with one of her charitable patronages, Action on Addiction. Kate wore a grey printed wrap dress from Max Mara Studio, a style that was extremely flattering and also helped disguise the aforementioned in-demand baby bump from the hordes of press cameras outside the engagement. (Kate Middleton may be four-and-a-half months pregnant and completely recovered from her bout of acute morning sickness, but she certainly won’t be flaunting her pregnancy à la Kim Kardashian anytime soon.)

Compared to her last appearance, Kate was glowing today—though that could have something to do with the “babymoon” vacation she and William just returned from in Mustique. (Even through her sheer tights a hint of a tan was still visible!) And pregnancy isn’t keeping Kate Middleton from wearing heels: she had a pair of 4-inch black suede Episode pumps on. Kate also had on her favourite Asprey pendent necklace and pair of pearl earrings by Annoushka.

Even better: Kate Middleton’s next public appearance has already been scheduled. That’s right, we’re just two weeks away from her next engagement, which will take place in Grimsby on March 5. We’ll obviously keep you posted.
