No legit problem, its just in the past it seemed like Kate wore them EVERYWHERE. There are pictures of her in them when the paps were swarming her like crazy a couple of years ago, when William got his RAF wings and probably like 10 other occassions

Its a pretty basic classic black suede boot that I am sure stays in style.

Like the skirt not the jacket.

Personally, I love the boots - they're cute, age and weather appropriate, on trend, and classic - but I know people like variety.

And this may hurt, but I don't see Kate's boots disappearing any time soon. I was in the UK a few weeks ago and every third (maybe second) person was wearing them or something similar. I felt massively out of place without a pair. I also hate to share that 98% of the people in London were wearing black. Only tourists wore color. Lol. So I don't see that trend disappearing until at least spring.

Indeed, I was having the same thoughts. I suppose they wanted people to know about their get-together!

I agree, I think they're fine. The only criticism I have of them is that she wears them so much that it's a bit boring - but then I have a go-to pair of boots myself, so I can certainly understand.

No problem. The boots are actually cute. It just seemed like she just used to wear them all the time.

Maybe they simply wanted to have a meal out. It can be boring to always eat at home.

Like all brides-to-be though the discussion turned to the wedding - of course - but I am sure they discussed other things as well.

It also sends a message that Kate and Camilla get along and that could also mean that William is comfortable with Camilla or else he would have warned Kate not to be seen to be too close to Camilla. Whether any message was intended is unknown of course but it does make that suggestion.

I like that they seem to have a good relationship with each other. Maybe Camilla is helping Catherine out on the in's & out's of royal life. Maybe the DoC has taken her under her wing. It's a nice thing to see that she's getting along well her soon-to-be step-mom in-law.

I am glad Camilla and Catherine had lunch together. It will be important for them to develop a relationship and get on with each other, as they deal with "the men in grey suits".

As to choice of venue for the lunch, I can't see why they can't eat out at a nice restaurant every now and then. Whether there was some embedded message in it or not, it seems everybody had a nice time - and that included the attendees of the lunch and the journalists writing about it!

I think the lunch had many purposes,they got to have a probably very nice lunch at a swish restuarant (which was perhaps chosen because Camilla's son is friends with the owner/chef there I think I read), they get to discuss whatever it is they discussed, they get to "show" the media/world that they get on & that Kate is being welcomed in etc but without putting it right in people's faces & knocking them out with an over the top PR display etc.

Plus I always dislike this notion that famous people or public figures suddenly are expected to never venture out except for work purposes & if they do go anywhere & are almost inevitably photographed then it simply MUST be some scheme to be photographed & a set up etc. Sometimes people just want to go out somewhere nice & the fact photographers etc may be around shouldn't deter them from that if you ask me. Like when Kate's mum & sister were photographed shopping a few weeks back, you can't really expect them to go into hiding & never go out in public anywhere for the next 6 months & beyond can you? I mean they should be able to have a life of their own without everything always having some hidden meaning behind it.

This gives me further reason for me to believe that Camilla's grandchildren will be part of the wedding procession. I hope at least Laura's daughter will be, she is cute as a button! Plus, Id love to see the twins.
I wouldn't hold my breath about Camilla's grandchildren being part of the wedding.

Kate looks terrible, her hair is dirty and is out of control at that length, what was she thinking about the eye makeup and that outfit is far worse than anything Mabel has worn. I know the English have a tad different sense of style than Americans (I lived and worked there for six years), but how can she think that looks good?

Makes me fear her choice of wedding gown.

You must have seen different photos than the rest of us? Dirty hair? Out of Control? The outfit?

I think it's meant that Catherine's hair may come across as looking kind of greasy and prone to split ends at this length.

Even if you look at the closeup of her, I don't see any greasy hair. And I still fail to see how this outfit is deemed worse than anything Mabel has worn?

Hey, don't shoot the messenger
I only typed something which I thought could be an elaboration/clarification. It may very well not be one at all

I don't see anything wrong with her hair or outfit either.

I thought the outfit was fine, nothing great or anything but pretty much exactly what you see on countless girls/women these days...well at least where I live anyway, & that is outskirts of London so maybe it's a British/London thing *shrug*

I think too much emphasis is being placed on whatever she's wearing anyway. If she wears something she's worn before, everyone has a go, if she wore something new everytime, everyone would have a go saying she's wasteful & extravagent in these economic times blah blah blah. It's a perfectly fine outfit for where she was & what she was doing, not like she turned up in jogging bottoms or just rolled out of bed or something. So long as she's vaguely appropriately dressed & looks relatively ok then I don't really care what she wears to be honest, most of the time she looks fine in my opinion so no complaints from me.

Why should they hide away when they just want to have anice lunch out?

Out of control, umm how so? It's long, so what?
Dirty how?
That is a massive statement to make about her outfit, Mabel has worn much worse IMO.
Looking good, is different in everyones eyes, obviously you don't think she looks good, but most of us do.


Something that bothers me is the comments.

Quote:
"Camilla, of course, knows all about advising princesses in waiting". What a load of tosh. She knows about no such thing. Her specialty was luring a princess's husband away when she had one of her own.
Quote:
Such a shame Diana isn't around to have a chat with her. She would have been brilliant and they would both have been laughing and happy. Oh well!
Quote:
For goodness sake DON'T TRUST HER, she's a devil in sheep's clothing for sure, the way she took Diana under her wing only to betray her, keep her at a distance for your own safety!!!
Camilla bashing goes on and on. I don't want to make this thread about Camilla and the triangle, but Camilla has proved she is a wonderful Princess and companion to Charles. She will provide excellent advice for Kate, and I'm glad to see them bonding.

What I will never understand is why certain people join a MB simply to trash the subjects/interest of that MB.

I'd say I'm surprised about the comment up above, but I've learned not to be. Sad too.
