British Royal Family

Duchess Kate's smashing maternity style during tour of Sweden

We're calling it princess perfection... The Nordic edition!

By Chloe Lal

Duchess Catherine is tres chic and we can't stop looking at these stunning new photos.

Prince William's wife might be due to give birth in April, but that doesn't mean she needs to wear maternity clothing at all times...

In fact, the 36-year-old's pregnancy style has been so on point, we're seriously considering boarding a flight to Sweden to get a first-hand look!

Capping off their final night in the nation that brought us IKEA, Kate and William enjoyed an evening at the Fotografiska Gallery in Stockholm.

And the pregnant royal dazzled in another frock by London-based designer Erdem.

The velvet number had many eagle-eyed fans wondering if she could be sending a subliminal message about the gender of her third baby, with many pointing out the blue hue could be a sneaky clue she's having another boy.

The dress was simply flawless, with hues of blue, it was made out of velvet with a floral design.

The elegant number had many eagle-eyed fans wondering if she could be sending a subliminal message about the gender of her third baby, with many pointing out the blue hue could be a sneaky clue she's having another boy.

Showing how to reign in the style stakes, Kate kept her make-up simple, teamed with a soft bun, a thin pair of silver earrings and Gianvito Rossi D'Orsay suede sandals.

This is the second time Kate, who is six months pregnant, has donned an Erdem creation on her first night in the Scandinavian nation.

Yesterday, fans were taken aback by the "Stephanie" gown which features a floral print, frilled collar, flared sleeves and is worth a cool $3404.

Prince William addressed the Swedish people, expressing, "It has been a great pleasure to be in Stockholm these last two days."

"Sweden is a country that holds a very special place in the heart of my family, and for all British people."

"And it has been a joy to see that our very high expectations for this beautiful city have been fully met."

Wills and Kate were hosted by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel during their two-day stay.

"Above all, we are grateful for the hospitality of Their Majesties The King and Queen, and of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel," William thanked.

"We have spent much of the past two days in their welcoming company, including at their home in Haga. Thank you for making us feel so welcome."

"We very much hope we will have the opportunity to repay your generosity in the United Kingdom soon."
