Kate Middleton, The Duchess Of Cambridge Praised For Handling ‘Tough’ Pregnancy With ‘Grace And Integrity’

Jennifer Lopez has praised Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambrige for the way she’s handled her pregnancy in the spotlight, claiming it has been done with “grace” and “integrity”.

The already high profile royal has seen attention on her increase to fever pitch even further since becoming pregnant, and with just a few weeks to go the former American Idol host has admitted that expecting a baby in the spotlight isn’t easy.

“It’s tough when you’re pregnant,” she told this week’s Stylist Magazine, “but Kate handles it with a lot of grace and integrity and that’s why she is what she is.”

Despite being eight months pregnant the Duchess joined the rest of the royal family at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday (June 4) for a service to mark 60 years since the Queen was crowned at her 1953 coronation.

Wearing a nude dress and matching pill box hat Kate looked elegant as she mingled with the rest of the royal family outside in the sunshine following the service. And she still hasn’t ditched those heels.

The statuesque brunette clearly isn’t suffering from the same problem as fellow pregnant star Kim Kardashian who has been forced to revert to flat shoes due to her swollen feet. The appearance was one of the last functions Kate will carry out before going on maternity leave on June 13.

She will be naming a cruise ship in Southampton on her final engagement that day and is likely to be the last time we’ll see her before the baby arrives.
