Kate Middleton Wears Alexander McQueen In First Public Appearance Since Baby News

Welcome back to the spotlight, Kate Middleton!

On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge attended her first public event since announcing she was pregnant with her second child.

The Duchess joined husband Prince William and the Queen to welcome the president of Singapore to the UK for his state visit. For the historic occasion, the 32-year-old mom sported a dashing grey Alexander McQueen coat dress that hid all signs of a baby bump, and a hat by Jane Taylor.

Kate, who is due in April 2015, reportedly told the president of Singapore: "I've been looking forward to getting out of the house," and judging by the photos of the smiling Duchess, it's obvious that she's feeling much better despite suffering from severe morning sickness for more than two months.

Because of Catherine's illness, Prince George's mom has had to cancel several official engagements, including a solo trip to Malta in September.

In fact, Kate hasn't been seen in public since August, when she paid a visit to the Tower of London's 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' poppy installation.

There's more where that came from!
