© TOPSTAR PicturesThe Duchess of Cambridge has repeatedly proved that she is no snob when it comes to shopping (she is always spotted at her favorite stores Zara and Reiss, among others), and when it comes to her maternity wear, Middleton continues to keep it real!

The mother-to-be showed off a chic printed Zara cape while shopping in West London on Wednesday, which she paired with black leggings a black scarf and riding boots.

And Zara isn’t the only retailer that she is gracing with her presence while she’s expecting. Just last week, she was also seen inside a London Gap store looking for leggings. We can’t wait to see what other adorable ensembles she puts together as her baby bump continues to grow.

Kate's great but your copywriter should know that the plaid is NOT a "print" but a woven pattern.

I am hoping that the trend of super-tight, stretch maternity clothes (and short halter tops and bikinis) will end soon. Nothing like a pregnant woman walking toward you and the first thing you notice is her inside-out navel, highlighted by her skin-tight shirt or dress.

Kate is proving that she is a beautiful and tactful lady!! She should be a wonderful example for all women who are pregnant.  The clothes that are worn by most today are decusting and so ugly,  It is  like someone who is trying to strangle herself and her baby,  Ladies take heed and watch the Duchess as she grows and glows till delivery!  It should be quite educaional to all!!!!

I agree with everyone Kate is a beautiful woman, and I am sure that she will set the trend on how to dress when you are expecting. There are young women out here who dress as though they are trying to get a date (if you know what I mean).People can see that you are expecting, so DRESS TO IMPRESS!!!!!!!

Really, iis it necessary to put "In the Oven"   or " Peas in a Pod"- I feel it is disrespecful to the mother, and it is not cute.

I am a mother of 3, and I did not feel anything but proud  !  I do think the Duchess will be  a good example of what

motherhood is all about.
