The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, was spotted on several occasions throughout the day patting her stomach.
Wearing a delicate pastel blue Elie Saab dress teamed with a matching Philip Treacy hat, the duchess – who is mother to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four and Prince Louis, one – even appeared to be sporting a hint of a baby bump.
As well as patting her stomach, Kate – who was accompanied by a dapper Prince William – also appeared to hide her stomach with her clutch bag on several occasions.
The royal family were out in force for the first day of Royal Ascot. As well as Kate and William, the Queen, Zara and Mike Tindall and Prince Charles and Camilla were all in attendance for the annual event.
