The photo, which surfaced soon after the Nov. 8 event, shows a smiling Middleton in full baby-mode, complete with a bib, makeshift diaper, pigtails, and rosy cheeks.
The good-natured Duchess donned the costume as part of Raisin Weekend, a longtime St. Andrews tradition in which new students are “adopted” by older students (their “academic parents”) and welcomed into the school’s fold. The festivities typically include a tea party, drinking games, and — most notably — a massive foam fight.
Am I wrong or is this SO CUTE? Look at those cheeks and pigtails and her huge smile!
Let’s start off with the obvious.

Nice stroll down memory lane.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William & Kate Middleton) gettin’ their groove on in Tuvalu (18/09/12)
Bill and Cathy, while adorable, are giving me PTSD-flashbacks to middle school bat mitzvahs, where the parents would drink a little too much and try to join the kids on the dance floor to Aqua’s “Barbie Girl.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge root for USA’s Missy Franklin to break the 200m backstroke world record, which she did. :)
This is exactly how I looked when Missy swam (I just had to edit that into past tense and it made me sad). My new bucket list is sitting next to Kate Middleton at an Olympic event.
Cutest. Ever. (Watching Great Britain win in Track Cycling.)
Found my Halloween costume for this year! I just bought a wrap dress that is an obvious knock-off of this one (and one I would probably wear, you know, outside of Halloween). The only other thing I need to buy besides nude pantyhose is a knock-off of her engagement ring… only, I can’t seem to find one for under $40.
I look forward to posing awkwardly in every single picture that night this exact way.
You’re going to be so fricking cute—don’t forget the eyeliner! Also, Ebay has some cheaper Kate Middleton rings.
