The Duchess of Cambridge headed back to work today for the first time in 2013 wearing a wrap dress from MaxMara studio which highlighted her growing bump. Kate returned to royal duties following her Caribbean 'babymoon' in Mustique with Prince William in order to visit Hope House, a residential facility for women who are recovering from addictions to drugs and alcohol. She teamed her figure flattering frock with a pair of black suede court shoes and an Asprey 167 Button Pendant.
31-year-old Kate is now five months pregnant and while the tight-fitting MaxMara dress did reveal her bump, twitter users were quick to comment on how tiny she has remained. Even so, we wonder whether MaxMara will have an influx of expectant mothers snapping up their wrap dresses. British brand Issa have recently released a maternity version of the blue wrap that Kate wore to announce her engagement to her now husband William in order to accommodate pregnant fans of the DoC's style.
Despite the recent bikini picture scandal Kate looked relaxed and happy as she kicked off her day which also includes a trip to Grimsby to learn about the town's maritime and fishing heritage.
