Kate shopped at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour where she was spotted browsing for lighting. Perhaps pieces for Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A or Anmer Hall, the couple's new country home.

The Design Centre Chelsea Harbour is described as "the world's premier design centre" catering for all one's home décor needs. The dazzling space provides the perfect environment for 90 showrooms and over 500 international interior brands. It is the largest of its kind in Europe.

One can also enjoy a look through specialist design titles in the bookshop or have a spot of lunch in one of the relaxing cafés. According to the E! story Kate had breakfast in the Dome Café.

Kate left with a bag from fabric store Turnell and Gigon. The prestigious brand carries a royal warrant and distributes a collection named after royal residence Clarence House. You may recall Kate was photographed shopping there last July and reportedly left with a selection of samples and swatches. Turnell and Gigon carry beautiful fabrics. It's no surprise it's a favourite of the Duchess's.

The Duchess purchased a rug in a shop on Lots Road, known for stocking vintage and contemporary furniture. Max Casimir shared the sighting as well as his sense of humour. :)

The lovely ladies over at the What Kate Wore Facebook Page quickly identified Kate's tweet jacket as a Zara piece. The grey wool military blazer features gold buttons and is thought to be from the brand's 2011 collection, and is unfortunately sold out.
It is thought Kate's flat shoes are Mint Velvet Taupe Suede Plimsolls. The Duchess was seen shopping in Anglesey last week and onlookers noted she was wearing plimsolls. These could very well be the same pair. They are available in sizes 4-8 for £79.
Kate accessorised with her Aquacutum Club Check Scarf. The luxuriously soft scarf is currently available at John Lewis.
And injected a pop of colour into the look with the very pretty Gold Plated Azuni Earrings. The £22.50 cornflower blue earrings are available at John Lewis.
Kate carried her grey Tod's D-Styling Tote.
The Duchess also wore a white top, light blue jeans and wore her hair in a pretty updo. I quite liked the whole look; perfect for a relaxing day of shopping. What do you think?
Our next segment is one the fashionistas among you will enjoy! Kate is currently in her third trimester and has thus far avoided maternity wear instead opting for non-maternity pieces with the occasional bespoke piece from one of her favourite designers. Naturally, the world's top designers would love to dress Kate's bump, but what would they design for the Duchess?
The talented folks over at Women's Wear Daily asked a selection of designers to sketch a design for Kate and share their creations. The Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel design is quite different to anything we've seen Kate wear. I couldn't imagine the Duchess opting for a low cut garment, but Karl said, "I think this design is very much in her taste." The salmon Chloé piece seems a much more likely choice for Kate.

Nanette Lepore and Nina Ricci's offerings.

Donna Karan's blue creation is beautiful. The designer said, "This is a dress she could wear forever, at any age, at any stage, during and after pregnancy." While Andrew Gn's black and white egg shaped dress is definitely a possibility for the Duchess.

One of Kate's favourite British designers, Amanda Wakeley, chose:
'a softly draped cocktail dress from our spring collection, but in an exclusive made-to-order mallard green... a shade I think would be amazing on her colouring... it is youthful yet demure with a beautiful embellished shoulder.'
We also look at Vera Wang's design, Huishan Zhang's floaty dress. Lela Rose's cream frock with black beading and Lorry Newhouse's ruffled creation.

A true variation of garments in terms of design and colour. I would love to hear your favourites and which dress you think would suit Kate's style best.
