The world fell in love with down-to-earth duo Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, watching them fall in love over the years.

Now, with rumors swirling that Kate will be delivering her royally cute bundle of joy in July, the world is watching Kate's every waddle. She's set to go on maternity leave this month, but leave it to the ever-so-chic and sweet Brit to look like a million bucks — dressed to the nines, no less! — a mere month or so (reportedly) before giving birth.
