Kate MiddletonWe've all been speculating about a royal baby being on the way for a few weeks, but now that Kate Middleton has announced her pregnancy and made things official -- we can't wait to start checking out her amazing maternity clothes!

Kate's pregnancy attire will no doubt be just as classy and perfect as her entire wardrobe has been up until this point, and it must be a relief for her now that the cat's out of the bag and she doesn't have to hide her growing belly any longer.

But when she was trying to conceal it, she did a pretty good job using simple style tricks that had mostly everyone fooled.

(Duh. We knew she had a bun in the oven all along.)

As it turns out, timing may have played a big factor in keeping her pregnancy a secret, because colder temperatures have allowed her to keep her changing body hidden under chic coats.

And in addition to wearing some very stylish outerwear, Kate has been seen carrying a clutch purse in front of her mid-section on more than one occasion.

Take a look at these photos to see more tricks Kate used to hide her bump -- hopefully we'll get a clear glimpse of it in the very near future!
