Kate Middleton was seen shopping for maternity clothes in London's Sloane Square on Wednesday. The pregnant royal was browsing the Seraphine maternity concession in Peter Jones.
The £39 Brooke Butterfly sleeve dress caught her eye, according to an onlooker. The jersey v-neck dress would be the perfect addition to her classic wardrobe. The pregnant royal must be planning ahead for the later stages of her pregnancy with this lightweight knee-length number for when the weather is warmer.
The brand is a favourite with celebrity mums-to-be. Kate Hudson, Halle Berry and Emma Bunton have all been spotted wearing their designs in the past.

The flattering cut is one that the fashion-forward duchess often wears. Most recently she wore a similar style in the form of a monochrome MaxMara wrap dress on a visit to Hope House in London.
It also bears a likeness to the famous Issa London dress that she wore to announce her engagement to Prince William in November 2010. Clearly a fan of Brazilian-born designer Issa Helayel's designs, she wore the same dress again in a regal violet hue while on tour in Canada.
Sloane Square is one of Kate's favourite spots for retail therapy and it's not the first time that she has been spotted in the area looking for maternity pieces. At the beginning of February she was spotted in Gap browsing the rails for one of her style staples, coloured jeans.
A Gap spokeswoman revealed what took the mum-to-be’s fancy, "This spring we have just introduced some great new bright colours in a 'skimmer' fit, which skims just above the ankle, and I believe these caught her eye."
The super skinny ‘skimmer’ style jeans come in five vibrant hues – citrus green, neon flamingo, citrus juice, becca blue and neon pink – as well as classic blues and printed floral patterns.
Kate was also recently spotted browsing for maternity clothes in a London branch of Topshop, causing much excitement among fellow shoppers.
"Oh, just an average day, Kate Middleton smiled at me!" wrote one Twitter user. "This was in Topshop! Truly Beautiful ."
Kate is a fan of both high street and designer fashion . She has been spotted in stores including Jigsaw, Gap and Warehouse.
While she suffered severe morning sickness in the early weeks of her pregnancy, Kate is looking in fine health and is looking forward to the birth of her baby, which is due in July.
