I wish there was some way I could've gotten royal trumpet fanfare to automatically play when you clicked on this post, because if royal trumpet fanfare was ever in order, now's the time. Are you sitting down? If you are, get up. You're going to want to stand for this one. Friends, Romans, Countrymen: Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has officially debuted her baby bump -- and it's more glorious and lovely than any of us could have ever dreamed.

I mean, come on. Is that not one of the most perfect, adorable baby bumps you've ever seen? And marinate on this for a second, will you? The future King or Queen of England is in that little belly; tiny scepter in undeveloped hand and all. Insane.
Kate got off to a rough start with her pregnancy -- it's nice to see she's feeling better and has finally got that highly-coveted pregnancy glow. I am counting down the minutes until she has a big ol' baby bump.
But we don't want to rush things. Let's enjoy this.
How adorable is Kate's baby bump?
