Kate Middleton has been spotted shopping for maternity wear in London


Media representatives gather in front of British artist Paul Emsley's portrait of Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge after its unveiling at the National Portrait Gallery in central London on January 11, 2013. This is the first official portrait of the Duchess and was completed after two sittings at the artist's studio and Kensington Palace.



Kate Middleton has been spotted shopping for maternity wear, including "jeggings" at Gap and other stores in Chelsea, Sloane Square and on King’s Road in London.

A photo of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge on the gossip website Hollywood Life showed her looking casual in a pair of jeans.

Middleton's baby with Prince William, second in line to the British throne, is due in July.

The gossip website cited a source as saying Middleton was looking for skinny pair of jeans, but couldn’t find the right length.

She also reportedly stopped into "her favorite sandwich shop, Pret A Manger" during the shopping spree.

E Online said one of reasons Middleton appealed to the masses was that she was a "really normal" person who not only wore such labels as Zara and Reiss but had "even been spotted her scouring for deals at the local grocery store, T.J. Maxx and Topshop, too!"

People Magazine reported that Kate, hospitalized several weeks ago over a bout of severe morning sickness, had been "getting stronger with each day" now that she was in her second trimester.
