Kate Middleton, Baby Bump Look Lovely in Yellow at Queen Elizabeth's Garden Party

by at . Comments

Kate Middleton was the bright spot - literally - at Queen Elizabeth II's annual summer garden party today, donning a lemon-yellow coat dress and fascinator.

The seven-months-pregnant Duchess of Cambridge stood out in the crowd of other guests, who clamored for a glimpse of her growing baby bump:

As Kate Middleton baby bump watchers know, it's really popped in recent weeks, and the Duchess always seems to look radiant with her style.

She appeared to be in great spirits as she mingled with her father-in-law, Prince Charles, and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, at the occasion.

All eyes were on the royal mom-to-be as she made her way around the affair, smiling and chatting with other seasonally, festively outfitted partygoers.

Among the 8,000 invitees were Olympians, Paralympians, and officials from London 2012. Over 270,000 cups of tea were served at the event!

After the playing of the national anthem at 4 p.m., members of the royal family split up to greet guests, each taking different routes through the grounds.

As Kate Middleton fashion statements go, it was another win at the event, which she attended for the first time as Prince William's wife in 2012.

The Queen's garden party is the pregnant Duchess' first official public engagement in quite some time; she has been lying low in recent weeks.

Some of that time has been spent taking cooking classes from her housekeeper, Antonella Fresolone, who's teaching the nesting Kate new recipes.

The Duchess has also been devouring parenting books.

"She is fascinated by the life growing inside her, and she is full of questions," a family source said. "Kate really engages with children. She's a natural."

"She's going to be a great mum."

We have absolutely no doubt about that, and can't wait to meet the new arrival, which is supposedly set to be born on July 13 or thereabouts.

What do you think she's having?
