Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian are two of the most glamorous women in the world and each will give birth to her first child in July.
But…When it comes to maternity style any similarities between the royal and the reality star ends there.

Kate Middleton, 31, has always been the epitome of elegance and at six months is still svelte, with a barely-visible Royal bump. She has also stayed loyal to her classic dress style, favoring demure wrap dresses and beautifully tailored coats.
Kim Kardashian, 32, appears to have taken it less easily in her high-heeled stride.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who is expecting her first baby from rapper Kanye West, always favored fitted outfits which flaunt her curves. Now Kim Kardashian has tried a more subdued style and the result is meltdown.
In ill-fitting shifts, skirts and skyscraper heels, Kim Kardashian looks mumsy and clumsy.
Up to now… Kim Kardashian so badly lost out to Kate Middleton in the battle of the bumps.
Kim Kardashian had another unflattering choice of maternity wear with a salmon pink dress that billowed dramatically at the hips as she attended church with her mother Kris Jenner on Sunday in Los Angeles.
Kim Kardashian, 32, who is six months pregnant, wore a floaty dress with the bottom tapered in.
The reality star showed off ample cleavage in the low-cut frock, while the draping material of her dress concealed her pregnant belly for the most part.
Kim Kardashian completed the look with stylish beige sandals and a brown suede handbag.

She wore her long dark hair straight and loose over her shoulders and shielded her eyes with giant aviator sunglasses.
Kim Kardadshian attended church with her mother Kris Jenner, who opted for a low-key look in black skinny jeans, a white blazer and black trainers.
Kris Jenner and her daughter walked closely together as they chatted while making their way into the church.
Kim Kardashian has received criticism for her unflattering maternity style, which has regularly consisted of either ill-fitting baggy clothing or tight, skimpy attire.
Much of the clothing has made her appear bigger than what she is, which became especially clear when she posted a Twitter snap of her bare baby bump on Saturday.
The star looked surprisingly slender in black leggings and a white T-shirt, suggesting that her weight gain hasn’t been as severe as it has seemed.
Kim Kardashian recently took to her blog to respond to criticism of her maternity style.
“I saw some comments that were so critical!” the reality star wrote on Friday.
“It’s funny because Kourtney warned me that when I get pregnant people’s opinions will be on an all time high and everyone will chime in. So I now see what she means.”
Kim Kardashian added: “I saw some comments that the skirt is too tight for the pregnancy and that’s ridiculous! I bought this skirt a few sizes bigger and there is plenty of room.”
Kate Middleton is already six months pregnant but she appears to be almost as slim as ever, with the merest hint of a baby bump.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked slim as she played basketball and table tennis as she visited a homeless shelter in Glasgow this week with Prince William.
Dressed in a chic tartan coat and her trademark black suede boots, Kate Middleton was unusually happy to reveal details about her condition saying she plans to go on maternity leave from her royal duties from “around June time”.

The duchess, who is six months’ pregnant, also revealed that her due date is “around mid-July” – a slightly more precise hint than the official announcement.
St James’s Palace has previously only confirmed the royal couple’s baby will be born “in July”, with officials refusing to give the exact due date.
Kate Middleton, 31, also said that she and Prince William had drawn up a list of boys’ and girls’ names for their first child – and that she has taken up knitting. “I’ve been trying to knit and I’m really bad. I should be asking for tips,” the duchess said.
When Rachel Sawyer, a project manager at Glasgow shelter, asked when her due date was and if she had any names, Kate Middleton replied: “It’s around mid-July but apparently babies have their own agenda …
“We have a shortlist for both [boy and girl] but it’s very difficult. My friends keep texting me names.”
When asked if she had got her nursery ready, Kate Middleton smiled and said: “No… we have got a lot to do!”
During the visit, the duchess also got an unusual insight into being a mother – from an eight-month-old baby with a taste for flowers. Kate Middleton chatted to Heidi Addison and her mother Shirley, who had a bouquet of flowers to give to the duchess, while they were in a crowd outside a sports centre.
