Congratulations to the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge on the news that Kate is expecting their third child! Following Kate's cancellation of a scheduled engagement on Monday, Kensington Palace released the following statement:
Unfortunately, the Duchess is again suffering from acute morning sickness and we may not see the Duchess for a few weeks. Kate's condition prevented her from accompanying Prince George on his first day of school at Thomas's Battersea.
Below are my favourite repliKate finds of the week ...
The Duchess of Cambridge wowed in the £1,000 Preen 'Finella' dress on the royal tour of Canada in 2016 and you'll be pleased to know there's a perfect repliKate for it by the brand themselves! The London-based label have a designer collaboration collection Studio by Preen at Debenhams. First launched in March, their latest drop includes high street pieces that are similar to their runway designs, including this red scoop neck midi length skater dress for only £69.
This week, Hobbs London unveiled their second clothing and shoe collection with Historic Royal Palaces - an independent charity that manages some of the UK’s royal palaces. The new Autumn/Winter collection was inspired by the lavish 17th-century Baroque interiors in Hampton Court Palace and the magnificent Crown Jewels housed in the Tower of London:

The iconic LK Bennett 'Sledge' has been updated. A signature court shoe, set on a sleek stiletto heel – contemporary additions include a modernised platform, softened almond toe and enhanced curve to the heel. The pumps are now available in glossy black patent, trench patent, oxblood suede and black suede.
BRAND BROWSING - MATERNITY STYLE
Whilst I'm so excited for the arrival of Baby Cambridge #3, I'm also exited to see what Kate will wear! She may choose to recycle a few pieces from her first and second pregnancy, but she may opt for all new like she did when pregnant with Princess Charlotte.
For her previous pregnancies, Kate favored maternity styles from ASOS and Seraphine. Below are my picks for the Duchess from the two British retailers:
Many of Kate's Seraphine styles are still available:
I will be pausing the newsletter until November. I will be away on vacation for the next few weeks, returning on October 8. I will use the time after I get back to catch up with all my blogs which means I won't have time to post newsletters during the catch up period.
I hope Kate is well enough by the time I get back and we see her out and about again doing her Duchess duties :)
