Duchess of Cambridge 'thrilled with lingerie gift'

Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge

Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge was apparently thrilled when a luxury lingerie company sent her special mother-to-be underwear.

The royal is currently expecting her first child with husband Prince William. The early stages of pregnancy were tough for Catherine as she battled severe morning sickness. One particularly nasty bout saw the 31-year-old hospitalised, and Lorna Drew Nursing Lingerie decided she needed a treat to lift her spirits. The company sent Catherine an ivory satin Alexa bra and briefs, and a rose printed Amy bra and briefs from their collection for new moms and mothers-to-be.

The brunette was said to be “delighted with the thoughtful gift” and Lorna Drew, who is MD for the lingerie specialists, was only too happy to help out.

“I know Kate would be feeling pretty dreadful and thought that she could do with special gift, as nothing makes you feel great like beautiful lingerie, so we sent her some!” she told “Kate’s style is very elegant, she always looks feminine and chic so I knew she would love our nursing bras and knickers.

“I was delighted to bring a smile to Kate’s face after a difficult start to her pregnancy.”

It seems pregnancy hasn’t affected her fashion choices too much. Catherine was recently deemed to have the most desired celebrity wardrobe, in a poll conducted by InStyle UK. She has been typically relying on ladylike long coats and simple, but well cut dresses, for her recent public engagements.

Catherine is due to give birth in July and the sex of the baby has not yet been revealed.

Earlier this week, it was claimed the duchess has been busy getting two nurseries ready for the future monarch. She is thought to be preparing baby rooms in Kensington Palace, in London, and at the couple’s new place Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
