This morning, Kate Middleton and the baby bump were in attendance at the Barlby Primary School, the bump wearing a lovely maternity dress by Madderson London to walk amongst its people for the first time as a visible protrusion. The force of its mere presence is so strong that it crashed Madderson London's site. And yet, despite its power, it moves so unassumingly, so humble in the wake of its subjects.
Today also marks Kate's first appearance on her fresh Twitter account, which she shares with Will and Harry. No word yet if Kate's bump will get its own account or piggyback on @KensingtonRoyal.
