Britain's Duchess of Cambridge doesn't have to stop wearing heels while she's pregnant, says Nicholas Kirkwood.

Catherine and her husband Prince William are due to welcome their first child into the world next month and the beauty is said to be on maternity leave after christening a Royal Princess cruise ship earlier this month.

Catherine has worn heels at every official engagement since announcing her pregnancy, which shoe designer Kirkwood says is fine to do.

"If she is used to wearing heels regularly, there's no reason why she should stop once pregnant. I saw one of my American buyers recently and she is pregnant and wearing these towering heels that were probably 8 inches, but she was perfectly stable because that's what she's used to," he told British magazine Grazia.

Last year, Nicholas made headlines when he criticised Catherine's preference for high street shoes. The designer revealed he'd like to see the duchess in more adventurous high fashion footwear.

"I know she's trying to be democratic, but I don't know how many pairs of L.K. Bennett you can wear. She does occasionally come out and is wearing [Alexander] McQueen or something like that. It's like, 'Do that more! You're meant to be a princess-y type of person, so act like one!"

Meanwhile, it was revealed earlier this week that Catherine has been splashing out on some pricey picks for her unborn baby.

The royal was spotted in upmarket Dragons of Walton Street, in London, where she has been choosing special furniture.

"It's very, very expensive and quite old-fashioned," someone from a neighbouring shop told People.
