Hard to believe the woman who stepped out of a London hospital today with a Prince on her arm clutching a bunch yellow flowers had spent three days throwing up. A genius piece on The Telegraph's fashion blog congratulates her, and also breaks down Kate's out of hospital look.

What might look to some like casually pulled back hairdo, is in fact a thoroughly glossy blowdry - most likely courtesy of Kate's go-to guy, James Pryce from Atelier - neatly pinned in place, Bardot style, at the nape of her neck.

Her stylist (yes, of course she has one), picked out the perfect 'cover-up' - a sensible but pretty dress coat that leaves everything to the imagination, and a lavender pashmina scarf which not only perked up her complexion, but even coordinated with William's cosy knit.

And of course, nothing says: "You can p**s off if you think you're getting a picture of my tummy" better than an enormous bunch of strategically placed yellow roses
