Duchess Kate is (finally) really showing!

At six months along, the pregnant princess gave royal watchers the most prominent glimpse yet of her baby bump — in a silk dress by designer Erdem — during a school visit in Manchester.

Over the weekend, Kate covered up in a Mulberry coat at the National Review of the Queen's Scouts. The Duchess of Cambridge stood in for the Queen as the monarch celebrated her 87th birthday.
