Kate Middleton Covers Baby Bump In Mulberry's Mint Tweed Coat At Scouting Parade

It was just a few weeks ago that Grazia Daily was at the Mulberry press day, perusing the beauties on display and wondering whether the Duchess of Cambridge might them. And today, we have our answer.

Because for the annual Scouting Parade, Kate Middleton wisely returned to the Brit brand, opting to wear the spring-like Frayed Coat in mint cotton tweed. The coat, from Mulberry's Spring Summer 2013 collection, is adorned with floral gold buttons, oversize pockets and frayed seams. It was available for £1,750 from www.mulberry.com but is now - yup - sold out.

Kate Middleton mixes Mulberry with LK Bennett

The pregnant Duchess topped off the look with those infamous LK Bennett Sledge heels and the Cappucino fascinator by Whiteley that we've seen several times before. The clutch, however, is entirely new - it's also from LK Bennett and is called the Avona clutch. As for her growing baby bump, she kept it hidden under the buttoned-up coat and used her clutch or bouquet of flowers as excellent distractions.

The Duchess loves Mulberry

Kate has become a firm Mulberry fan in recent years, flying the flag for all things British while working a classic but quirky label that is just as popular with hipster types like Alexa Chung and Kate Bosworth. She first impressed us with some Mulbs action when displaying that Polly Push bag on her tour of Canada and LA before being spotted in the brand's wool skirt while shopping casually on the Kings Road. Her next step was wearing that gorgeous green Cabbage dress at a Buckingham Palace event, which she repeated a year later for the opening of the Museum’s Treasures Gallery.

The event took place at Windsor Castle on this sunny Sunday where Kate was joined by Bear Grylls (who knew he's UK Scouting’s Chief Scout?). Meanwhile, the Queen is celebrating her actual birthday today and as she turns 87, we took a trip down memory to take her look at her finest outfits.

As for Kate, you can see her best looks in the gallery below...

    Some things in life are hard to explain, like why a dentist insists on asking you questions when you clearly can't respond. Or why we call pants "a pair" even though it's just one. Or how about this puzzler: Why a person would drive their Mustang along a Texas highway despite it missing a wheel? Life is full of little mysteries, I guess.
