Here’s Why Fans Are Freaking Out Over Kate Middleton’s Recycled Pregnancy Coat
Kate Middleton has done it again! The queen of recycled wardrobes is stepping out in yet another re-styled piece, and this one has fans in a tizzy.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared in Coventry yesterday for a day of public appearances, and Middleton’s hot pink 2014 Mulberry coat (approximately $1,085 USD), black gloves and clutch, and favored black Tods pumps instantly stole the spotlight.
Just as with the royal Christmas card, which saw the entire family decked out in shades of blue, fans began to speculate that the color of her outerwear could be a hint to the sex of the sibling Princess Charlotte and Prince George will soon be meeting.
While the 36-year-old has donned various shades of both pink and blue throughout her pregnancy (you might recall the gorgeous Elsa-esque gown she wore back in November and the Temperley London dress she donned for her first post-pregnancy appearance or the sweet Orly Kiely gown she wore for her second), it was the timeline of WHEN she’s worn this particular piece before that had royal baby watchers reading into a deeper meaning.
Middleton first wore the coat in December 2014 for a visit to The National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York City. She re-wore the piece again in March of the following year for an appearance in South London.
As Vanity Fair notes, both times, it was during her pregnancy with Princess Charlotte.
Could it be, then, that the mama-to-be is sending us all a secret message about the babe that lies within?
We’ll likely have to wait for the answer when and if the Duke and Duchess decide to make an announcement before the baby’s birth, but we’ll admit it: The suspense is KILLING us!
