Kate Middleton was pretty in pink in an Orla Kiely dress on Monday as she made a surprise appearance at London's Paddington train station with husband Prince William and Prince Harry to meet the cast and crew of the upcoming movie Paddington 2. The Duchess' ladylike look featured an raised floral motif and black details, including a black bow belt which cinched slightly above the pregnant royal's tiny baby bump.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's mom carried with her a simple black rectangular clutch and accessorized with black pointed-toe high-heels. She kept her jewelry to a bare minimum, choosing a simple silver watch and drop earrings. Kate also showcased a glossy new, shoulder-length haircut, having seemingly had a few inches taken off her brunette tresses.

The 35-year-old mother-of-two, who is suffering from severe morning sickness, was an unexpected addition to William and Harry's scheduled appearance. The Paddington visit was Kate’s second public outing since the announcement of her third pregnancy, following on from her appearance on October 10 to mark World Mental Health Day. On that occasion, the Duchess wore a powder blue lace design by Temperley London.

Orla Kiely may not be as frequent a label in the Duchess' wardrobe as Temperley or Alexander McQueen, but the brand is a favorite with both Kate and her sister Pippa Middleton. The Duchess has been seen wearing Orla Kiely numerous times over the past few years, while Pippa is a fan, too, and included a blouse by the Irish designer in her honeymoon wardrobe after marrying James Matthews in a spectacular English countryside wedding in May.
