Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge, And Her Growing Baby Bump Visit The National Portrait Gallery

Duchess Kate's Hair
Various photos of Her Royal Highness's locks.
Kate Middleton made an appearance today (April 24, 2013) to celebrate the work of The Art Room charity at The National Portrait Gallery in London, England.

Kate was glowing in a sleeveless baby blue Emilia Wickstead cocktail dress, showing us just enough of her baby bump. Kate pulled her hair back in a half pony (Andy Cohen would have died if she had worn her hair in a side pony) and accessorized with grey suede heels.

Meanwhile, two people have been charged over topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge. Sources told the AFP news agency that the head of the Mondadori Group – the publisher of glossy magazine Closer where some of the shots were printed – and a photographer at regional daily La Provence were both charged. 

The photos of Prince William’s wife Catherine caused a furor when they were published last September, and sparked a criminal probe into how they were obtained.

Judges in the Paris suburb of Nanterre charged the photographer with “invasion of privacy” for taking photos of the former Kate Middleton in a swimsuit while she was on holiday in the south of France with her husband.

Those shots were published in La Provence. But the most intimate images showing the Duchess of Cambridge topless and having sun cream applied by William were published in Closer.

Hopefully the media has learned a lesson from all of this. Do not mess with Kate, the great. Especially when she’s topless.
