Kate Middleton Sports Baby Bump, Blue Coat & New Hairstyle, Internet Goes Berzerk

by at .

The pregnant Kate Middleton stepped out in a stylish cornflower blue coat and a bouncy blowout, complete with curled ends, for an appearance this week.

Naturally, the new look - plus her growing baby bump - made the 33-year-old beauty the talk of the UK. No, we mean even more than she always is.

Kate Middleton's Hairstyle

Kate's hair, instead of being gathered behind her ears, was largely left down, having the style sweep up closer to her temples in a departure from the norm.

Not straying too far from one of her familiar looks, but with a new spin on it, the Duchess secured the tresses in a loose knot at the crown of her head.

Also on display at her latest public engagement (thanks to the high British winds, which blew up Middleton's coat and may get her royal minder fired):

Prince George's mom accented her latest round of baby bump pics with navy blue Jimmy Choo "Georgia" heels and L.K. Bennett's "Frome" clutch.

Middleton was on hand at the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent, England, to see the production of a charity mug she helped to create.

The cups, which are currently available for pre-order, will help raise money for the sick children and their families at the East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

Boasting a delicate ladybird and floral design, the mugs retail for 20 pounds each or 40 pounds for two, with 10 pounds from each going to charity.

"It was the Duchess’s idea to approach Emma, whom she didn’t know previously, and she helped in the design process," an aide told Us Weekly.

After seeing her pieces on the production line, Kate Middleton met with families from the Donna Louise Children's Hospice for a ceramics workshop.

Later, Prince William's lovely wife was presented with a painting of the area's Lake District, completed just for her by a 16-year-old girl named Chloe.
