KATE Middleton was this afternoon spotted for the first time since the arrival of Prince Louis on April 23, heading out of Kensington Palace.
Her brown hair loose, and wearing sunglasses, she looked straight ahead as Prince William drove her.

She was wearing a V-necked cut floral-patterned, £215 red dress from Michael Kors as she sat in the passenger front seat of the car.
But it’s bad news for people who want to replicate her style – because the belted MICHAEL by Michael Kors dress is virtually already sold out.
On Net-A-Porter it is only available in XX-small size.
Meanwhile, Prince William wore an open-necked white shirt and blue suit top, as the couple headed west to Berkshire.

It’s understood they are attending the Royal Wedding rehearsal dinner.
Kate is currently on maternity leave following Prince Louis’ arrival at the Lindo wing in Paddington, central London, but has confirmed she will be attending the wedding where Princess Charlotte is a bridesmaid, and Prince George a pageboy.

Earlier Meghan Markle revealed her dad, Thomas Markle, would not be walking her down the aisle on Saturday.
In an extraordinary statement that appears to be aimed at her family, who have criticised her and Kensington Palace officials for not supporting her dad ahead of the big day, Meghan said: “I’ve always cared for my father”.

It means her dad will not walk her down the aisle, with mum Doria Ragland – who arrived in London yesterday – instead expected to step into the role at the last minute to save the day.
Meghan said: “Sadly my father will not be attending our wedding.
“I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.”
