Looking stunning as ever, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton strategically placed a purse over her tummy during a royal appearance Tuesday.
It was enough to send the media and gossip-loving public into a frenzy wondering if there is indeed something blooming ... and we're not talking about the flowers!
Is Kate Middleton pregnant with her second child? We highly doubt it, as the alleged "baby bump" shown on this day would not be called that on anyone else.
When you're Kate, and rumors swirl about you being knocked up (hopefully expecting a baby girl this time) all day every day, this somehow qualifies.
Seriously, though? If her supposed friend Jessica Hay's recent "confirmation" were at all accurate, she would be showing a lot more than this by now.
A lot more. What she is showing is a great deal of emotion, having visited the Tower of London’s “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” installation.
Kate, husband Prince William and Prince Harry paid tribute to the site, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.
It will eventually hold 888,246 ceramic red poppies, representing each and every British and British colonial loss of life during the "Great War."
That, not feeling imprisoned in London (another great tabloid rumor of recent weeks), was enough to bring a tear to the 32-year-old's eye on this day.
