The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, joined her husband Prince William in Scotland today for a day of engagements in Strathearn, Perth and Kinross. All eyes were on Kate for two reasons: rumors have been swirling about the Duchess being pregnant with twin baby girls, and yet another tabloid scandal - a German paper recently printed a photo of Kate's bare bottom when the wind blew her skirt in Australia.

So everyone was watching to see if Kate would be showing (after all, if anyone possibly knew that she was pregnant with twins and knew their gender... she'd have to be at least 12 weeks along) and how her demeanor would be following yet another breach of her privacy. Well she seemed as good-natured as ever - holding her head high and having fun with their morning walkabout. As for those pesky pregnancy rumors? While her Jonathan Saunders coat was bright and festive for spring, it didn't do much to squash them.

Her well-tailored coat is very flattering, but slightly loose around her stomach. So, no... upon first look at the Duchess today, we couldn't discount the idea that a little baby bump could be there. Cue our excitement building a little bit... only to be squashed when she and William embarked on their Distillery tour. Because yes, whiskey was involved.
