Kate Middleton Christmas

Dressed in a stunning coat and hat, the Duchess of Cambridge greeted the more than three thousand people who came to see her on Christmas. Do you see a baby bump?

Not since Princess Diana‘s lifetime has the royal family seen a turn out this big for their walk to Sandringham Church for the traditional Christmas Day service at Sandringham in King’s Lynn, England. More than 3,000 on-lookers came to support and greet Kate Middleton on her Christmas day as a royal family member.

Dressed in a full-length modest maroon coat, black dress, tights and a hat by Jane Corbett, the 29-year-old beauty — alongside her husband, William, and his brother, Harry — looked thrilled to meet her fans and accept bouquets of flowers. There’s been much talk of a baby bump on the new duchess, however, we couldn’t see much beyond her Christmas coat — perhaps she’s hiding the news?

The queen, Prince Charles, Camilla and several other members of the family were also in high spirits this morning. However, the Duke of Edinburgh missed the service, as he is in the hospital after having cardiac surgery Friday.
