Kate Middleton Shows Off Baby Bump In Grey Dress!
Duchess of Cambridge revealed her blossoming belly during charity visit...
Kate Middleton has shown off her growing baby bump during her first official appointment of 2013 in London today (February 19).
In other related news, author Hilary Mantel has lashed out at the Duchess during a recent lecture at the British Museum - branding the Royal "plastic" and that she has "no personality of her own."
Mantel said: "Presumably Kate was designed to breed in some manner. She looks like a nicely brought up young lady, with 'please' and 'thank you' part of her vocabulary."
The writer added that her first impressions of Middleton were that she was "a jointed doll on which certain rags are hung... In those days she was a shop-window mannequin, with no personality of her own, entirely defined by what she wore.
"These days she is a mother-to-be, and draped in another set of threadbare attributions... her only point and purpose being to give birth."
She also compared Kate to William's late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, Anne Boleyn and Marie Antoinette.
Mantel's lecture 'Undressing Anne Boleyn', which she delivered on February 4, is set to appear in the new edition of the London Review of Books, which ispublished on Thursday (February 21).
