The First Kate Middleton Baby Bump Photos Are Here to Cure Your Royal Baby Fever

At long last, Kate Middleton and her (slight) baby bump have made their first public appearance, and damn if she doesn’t look more radiant than ever.

The Duchess of Cambridge, wearing a blue Temperley London lace dress, introduced her bun in the oven to high society at a Buckingham Palace reception held in honor of the Heads Together campaign she founded with her hubby, Prince William, and her bestie, Prince Harry. The regal occasion marked World Mental Health Day and aimed to celebrate those who work in the mental health field, as well as reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

Since Kensington Palace announced K-Middy’s third pregnancy in early September, the duchess has remained out of the public eye in order to nurse a condition she suffers from called hyperemesis gravidarum (severe morning sickness). Yeah, the condition really isn’t fun. It even prevented her from taking Prince George to his first day of school. So we’re definitely glad to see Kate out and about if it means she’s feeling a little better.
