So perhaps nerves have got the better of Catherine Middleton, who looked slimmer than ever when she met the Obamas at Buckingham Palace today.
Catherine, 29, showed off her tan in a knee-length shift dress by favoured label Reiss and a Maude clutch by Anya Hindmarch Bespoke.
In a nude £175 'Shola bandage' dress and sporting her signature blow dried-hair, Catherine looked the picture of elegance as she chatted with Michelle inside the palace. Courtesy The Daily Mail. Click link for full post.
