Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge To Show Off Baby Bump At Queen’s Coronation Service
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge will show off her baby bump as she joins husband Prince William and other members of the royal family for the Queen’s Coronation service on June 4.
The royal family will attend a special celebration at Westminster Abbey next month to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation. It was unconfirmed until now exactly who would be at the service, but according to Hello! Kate and William will be among the royal well wishers.
Prince Harry, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Princess Anne, The Duke Of York, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie will also all attend according to the report.
The service will take place just a month before the Duchess of Cambridge’s baby is due, meaning we could be seeing a pretty big baby bump on display!
Along with the royal family, around 2,000 guests including PM David Cameron will witness the service, which will be conducted by the Dean of Westminster, who has written a Coronation Anniversary Prayer approved by the Queen herself.
Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy has also written a poem especially for the anniversary which will be read by actress Claire Skinner during the service.
After the service, which starts at 11am, the Queen will depart to College hall, to attend a private lunch, thrown by the Dean of Westminster. It is believed though that Prince William and Kate will miss the lunch, to allow the Duchess, who will be eight months pregnant by this stage, time to rest.
Meanwhile it’s been suggested that once Kate’s public appearances dwindle in the coming weeks she will move out of London to stay at her parents, Carole and Michael’s, home in Buckleburty, Berkshire for the final weeks of her pregnancy.
Kate’s last public appearance has been confirmed for June 13 – a month before her baby’s birth – where she will take part in the naming ceremony of Princess Cruises’ new liner Royal Princess in Southampton.
