Kate Middleton will attend the 11am service at Westminster Abbey with the rest of the royal family tomorrow morning…
Kate Middleton and baby bump are preparing to mark the the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation with a special service at Westminster Abbey tomorrow.
The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge will attend the 11am event with Princes William and Harry, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, it has been confirmed.
Although pregnant Kate Middleton has been scaling back her royal engagements ahead of the royal baby’s birth on July 13, the Queen’s special service was clearly one not to be missed.
Her appearance will come just over a year after Kate wowed during the Jubilee celebrations in a series of Alexander McQueen dresses.
Prince William and Kate Middleton, who will sit in prominent seats alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall at the service, will be joined by the rest of the royal family, including Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
The royals will be accompanied by 2000 guests for the Dean of Westminster-conducted service, held just three days shy of the Queen’s June 2 coronation in 1953.
It’s thought David Cameron will also attend, while actress Claire Skinner will read a specially commissioned poem by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
Afterwards, reports suggest Kate Middleton, who will be close to eight months pregnant by then, has been given leave to skip the remainder of the celebrations.
While the Queen and the rest of the royals travel by car to a private lunch thrown by the Deane of Westminster, it’s thought pregnant Kate will be excused to return to Kensington Palace.
This falls in line with last week’s news that Kate Middleton is planning to scale back her official commitments ahead of the birth of the royal baby on July 13.
