Kate Middleton isn't about to let her pregnancy keep her from celebrating the nuptials of a friend! The Duchess of Cambridge - along with husband Prince William - jetted off to Switzerland over the weekend to attend the wedding of friend and polo player Mark Tomlinson and Laura Bechtolsheimer.
The 31-year-old mother-to-be wore a cream-colored coat that covered her growing stomach, though it was later on display when she hit the slopes at the Arosa ski resort.
Middleton will likely slow down her travel as she nears closer to her July due date. However, she's definitely been racking up the frequent flier miles recently.
Babymoon in Mustique
It's been a rough few months for the royal couple, thanks to Middleton's intense morning sickness and hospitalization. They managed to put that all behind them in early February when they headed to the Caribbean island of Mustique for a little babymoon.
The problem? Photographers followed the couple to the island and captured the first photos of Middleton's growing stomach. The photos were later published in the European tabloid Chi.
A spokesman for St. James' Palace later said the couple was "disappointed that photographs of the Duke and Duchess on a private holiday look likely to be published overseas. This is a clear breach of the couple's right to privacy."
Their Mustique vacation wasn't the first time paparazzi followed the pair on vacation. In fall 2012, the pair traveled to a private island in the south of France for a little rest and relaxation.
Of course, photographers managed to capture a topless Middleton as she sunbathed. Those pictures were also published in Chi - and the royals were royally angry.
"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so," a spokesman for St. James Palace said at the time.
Wills' and Kate's trip to Denmark in Nov. 2011 wasn't exactly for pleasure. The pair - in the country on behalf of UNICEF - helped packed humanitarian relief boxes during the trip.
The trip even sparked pregnancy rumors when Middleton declined to test some of the peanut butter included in the package.
