As Kate Middleton repeatedly proves to us, just because you’re preggers, doesn’t mean you can’t be the absolute picture of elegance! The ever-graceful Duchess of Cambridge made a special appearance at today’s St. Patrick’s Day Military Parade in Aldershot, England.

Clad in a sage-green coat (the puckered shoulder style, fittingly, classifies it as a “princess” coat), the 31-year-old mother-to-be handed out shamrocks to the Irish Guards. Prince William was right by her side with doting eyes. The devoted husband helped Kate resume her poise when she got her heel caught in a street drain.

Today’s festive appearance was just one of many public outings for the royal. Seems to be way of her saying to pregnancy-related fatigue, Checkmate! Not unless its a health concern will Kate resort to the boredom of nonstop bed rest. 

Despite the picture-perfect image, and the legendary love story behind the pair, the couple do have their issues. As we reported yesterday, the lovebirds quarrel like any others. But even their quarrels seem sweet as can be, for they typically revolve around the board game Scrabble. Nothing like a battle of the brains to take off the looming pressures of first-time parenthood!

The couple is scheduled to welcome their firstborn in July. We continue to wish them a healthy, happy time. But hey, Kate, maybe you should get that bed rest while you still can sleep!
