Best 50+ Kate middleton daily mail things on The Cedrus
The Duchess of Cambridge revealed a tiny baby bump tonight as she made her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy last month.
The 35-year-old royal, who has not been seen in public since August 30, joined Prince William, 35, and Prince Harry, 33, to host a glittering Buckingham Palace reception to mark World Mental Health Day.
She looked radiant in a £795 powder blue lace dress by Temperley London which skimmed over her bump.
Kate has taken six weeks off royal duties after being struck down with the same severe strand of morning sickness that she suffered while pregnant with Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two. It forced Kensington Palace to announce her pregnancy far earlier than planned.
An aide revealed tonight that the duchess is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum but said her condition is improving. She added Kate was determined to attend the event because the cause is close to her heart.
Guests praised the royal for attending despite her condition with Dr Nicola Byrom, of charity Student Minds, added: 'She's amazing. What a fighter that she's here.'

The palace is likely to confirm Kate’s due date soon, once she passes the 12-week date at which the risk of miscarriage is reduced. While she may appear at some events, there is no indication she is well enough to resume full royal duties.
Tonight an aide said: 'The duchess' condition is improving but she is still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. She is delighted to be able to be here tonight.'
Indeed Kate appeared to be in excellent spirits as she greeted guests alongside her husband and brother-in-law in one of the palace's opulent reception rooms.
The elegant duchess accessorised her feminine frock with a pair of black suede heels and a small clutch bag. She wore her thick brown locks in bouncy curls that fell just below her shoulders and kept her make-up look simple.
Making a statement with her jewellery, Kate also sported £3,500 Kiki McDonough blue topaz and diamond earrings.
The 350 guests at the event included former Dame Esther Rantzen, model Adwoa Aboah and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Kate was praised by guests for making an appearance despite her sickness.
Stephen Fry, who is the president of the charity Mind, said: 'I do understand she's been having this problem more severely than many pregnant mothers and so we're very grateful [she's here].'

Commenting on the event, he added: 'When mental health is discussed here under these chandeliers in front of these portraits it does have a meaning it does show a change in our society's ability to look at problems like mental health.'
He also praised the young royals' mental health campaign, describing it as an 'extraordinary achievement', adding: 'No one would realise if they hadn't done it, which makes it all the more remarkable that they have.'
Dr Nicola Byrom, of charity Student Minds, said of Kate: ‘She’s amazing. What a fighter that she’s here.’
Dame Esther Rantzen said: 'We are seeing with Childline more and more contact both online and over the phone from young people suffering with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. It can be a very stigmatising issue.
'Similarly with older people, this is a significant issue. And many have needed encouragement to talk.
