Most people look like disheveled zombies post-transatlantic flight, blindly clawing for a bed to fall into. But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t most people. Instead, they arrived at the Carlyle Hotel, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, looking fresh-faced and positively jolly.
Prince William, wearing a crisp navy tailored suit and bright blue tie, exited the royal couple’s motorcade with his nearly five months pregnant wife on Sunday night looking quite dapper. Kate Middleton fought the near freezing temperature with a mulberry boucle coat with metallic threading. Don’t bother looking for your own though—the “Marina” jacket was custom made for her by Seraphine, a maternity clothing brand that the Duchess often wore while pregnant with Prince George. She completed her look with a Stuart Weitzman clutch, Cornelia James gloves, and black suede booties. Middleton’s baby bump was clearly visible for maybe the first time since announcing she was expecting her second child.

Shortly after settling down at their home base for their 48-hour stay in New York City, the royals made a quick outfit change and headed out to a private dinner to support the Royal Foundation. Middleton ditched her coat for a black lace dress from Beulah London. For about $1,050, the mid-length dress can be pre-ordered from the company’s spring/summer collection. The Duchess accessorized with a pair of sparkly statement earrings, Mulberry clutch, and Stuart Weitzman pumps.
Of course, Middleton’s cheeks were rosier than ever and her hair shone bright. She’s traveling with Amanda Cook Tucker, her personal hairdresser, to guarantee there’s nary a hair out of place.
