On Monday, Kate was the guest of honor at a luncheon to mark the 105th birthday of The Goring Hotel. She was there to officially reopen the London hotel in the company of celebrities and loyal guests.

The Duchess’ visit was not part of her official duties, and according to Kensington Palace she was attending in a private capacity after receiving a personal invite from the hotel.

Prince William was not in attendance as he was on an official tour of China.

Kate showed off her impeccable style and growing baby bump in a pink and purple floral print dress by Erdem. The figure-hugging frock, titled the ‘Darla’ has a steep £995 price tag, and is not new season – it is from the label’s Resort 2013 collection.

Completing her outfit, Kate held her navy suede Stuart Weitzman for Russel & Bromley ‘Muse’ clutch (£245), wore her matching bespoke Alexander McQueen navy suede pumps, and her aquamarine and diamond drop earrings (still UFO).

The hotel holds a special place in Kate’s heart — it’s where she famously spent her last night before marrying Prince William in 2011. Her parents and siblings Pippa and James also stayed there.

The hotel’s Royal Suite, which runs the entire length of the top floor, with French windows in each room that open on to a balcony overlooking the hotel’s private garden, is reputedly where the Duchess set up her HQ for the big day.

Kate was photographed adding some detail to a painting during her visit to The Goring Hotel on Monday. I believe this was a painting in one of their refurbished rooms.
