Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge has wowed fashion watchers with her maternity style and it seems her taste for a flattering look doesn't end there as she was said to be "delighted" by underwear designed specifically for mothers to be, which was sent to her by a nursing lingerie specialist shortly after it was announced the royal was expecting her first child.
The 31 year-old, who is was revealed was pregnant last December was sent an ivory satin Alexa bra and brief, and a rose printed Amy bra and brief from Lorna Drew Nursing Lingerie's latest collection.
Speaking to Marie Claire head designer, Lorna Drew, claims the Duchess was "delighted with the thoughtful gift".
Revealing why she sent the gift, she told the magazine: "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.
"Kate’s style is very elegant, she always looks feminine and chic so I knew she would love our nursing bras and knickers."
The 31 year-old was forced to reveal her pregnancy early after she was hospitalised for severe morning sickness for three days in December, when she was less than 12 weeks pregnant.
Explaining she hoped it had cheered the Duchess up, Lorna added: "I was delighted to bring a smile to Kate’s face after a difficult start to her pregnancy."

Kate certainly has been mixing up her maternity wear, though with her tiny bump she hasn't had to ditch her usual clothes just yet. According to insiders, the royal won't be displaying too much of a bump, if she's anything like mum Carole.
“Carole didn’t show for a long time,” a source told Us Weekly.
“She wore non-maternity clothes right up until the final weeks. So it was no surprise to the family when Kate stayed little.”
Well we think Kate's been looking pretty amazing during her pregnancy, she's certainly got that mum-to-be glow!
