I agree kate doesn't look as put together as usual, her hair looks a bit untidy/ greasy, but maybe she took it easy on the blow dry because it was just a lunch with family/ family to be?
Her clothes look fine, just the size of her thigh looks tiny to me in one picture.

I think it's just great that Camilla and Kate and Pippa and Laura went out to lunch together at a swish restaurant and had fun. It sends a few rather obvious messages, and I suspect that was partly the reason for the gathering, but that's just fine in my book. I think it's great that the members of this blended family get on well. It's handy that Tom is in the food business and has contacts like this.

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

The comments were on the DM website not here of course and the article was written by Diana confidante, Richard Kay.

Kate Middleton's foie gras lunch with Camilla: What would Charles say? | Mail Online

‘It is unbecoming for the future Queen of England to eat something that would be illegal to produce here, and that involves very un-British cruelty.

Not a very clever, sensitive thing to order for lunch, but at least she is honest, she wanted to eat it and choose to eat it in public. Makes me wonder though if she has what it takes for her new role.

Question: Are Kate's highlights new since the engagement or is it just the outdoor lighting that makes them more noticeable?

You're going to determine how fit she is as a Queen on her choice of food?

Me neither, her hair looks same as it always has to me anyway.

And yeah I don't care about the foie gras, if it's available on the menu, you can't eat whatever you want in my book!

It's a terrible jungle-like outfit and way too much eyeliner.
She looks like she's playing a part in The Lion King.

The highlights are pretty visible in the picture lower down on this page:

Also, the eyeliner is very visible. I'm shocked, really, at how heavy it is. She could definitely use some skin and foundation advice from someone who understands what it's like to be photographed in the sunlight. I will say no more, but I have my thoughts about her appearance.

If she's not going to have a cook, she needs to learn how to make "fox grass" or maybe not if they just get take away all the time.

Before the engagement, her hair was "flat" colorwise. Now it has very, very subtle highlights, which I like on her.

True......but it makes me wonder if she undertsands that every tiny thing she does now will be viewed through this narrow lense....nto that she needs to change but just maybe consider that....I wonder if she really understands the pressure she signed on for....ah, the love of William probably makes it worth it

Your first statement makes me ask: If it is illegal to produce fois gras in Britian, why on earth is the suff allowed to be IMPORTED into the country. I think it is shameful that would-be British producers are in chains, but the Continental products are welcome.

Your second statement makes me ponder: Perhaps Kate is NOT sensitive at all.

If she's not going to cook, someone will cook for her.

Yet.. they weren't having them yet. I'm sure William can live on "student food" until then.

She doesn't need to learn how to cook foie gras, she just needs to know a restaurant which does it

Perhaps getting foie gras at the restaurant was a perk of eating out. Many love to go out and get lobster, escargot and other gourmet foods that they would normally never cook at home. William and Kate do seem to do their own cooking and I really don't think they'll starve or eat meager meals either. Like all young brides I'm sure that she thinks her William is a greek god and will offer him burnt offerings from time to time like we all do/did. Everyone has horror stories about meals they've cooked.

What I am struck by is the fact that their waiter saw fit to tattle to "someone" about what they ordered. IMO, this restaurant, which is supposed to be so very classy needs to train it's waiters to keep mum about the customers they serve.

If it were me, that would be the last time I would see fit to set my feet inside the place. It's ridiculous that people (anyone) cannot eat what they want without being criticized. In one article, Catherine was criticized about her hair, her dress, her jacket, her tights, her clutch bag and of course her makeup ..... ALL by the same person!

Is it any wonder that she has been "quiet"?
