Kate Middleton and Her Baby Bump Meet One Direction

Kate Middleton's Hats
HRH's most festive headwear
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge got the chance of a lifetime today (November 13, 2014), when she met boy band One Direction at The Royal Variety Performance at the London Palladium in London, England.

Catherine wore a black lace Diane von Furstenberg gown which gave us a glimpse of her tiny baby bump, while her husband Prince William wore a classic black tux.

The royal couple took over the duties of The Queen who is not attending the annual show this year.

While the boys of One Direction all wore classic black to the event (although Harry Styles wore a brown leopard print jacket over his black shirt), it would have been nice if Harry and Zayn Malik’s hair didn’t look so messy.

The Mirror reports that Harry did congratulate Kate on the baby. “I said congratulations on the bump,” he revealed. “Though she didn’t look bumpy.”
