Kate Middleton, looking very nearly pregnant in a green Emilia Wickstead coat, was the victim of a slight wardrobe malfunction during Hampshire's St. Patrick's Day parade when her heel got stuck in a drain grate. Prince William dropped the ball on an adorable Cinderella-style photo opportunity, and instead just held KMid's arm as she bent to dislodge the pump. The DoC, Wills, and the guards then had a hearty chortle and she pinned sprigs of shamrocks on a dog. Save that one for the baby book!
