A VERY unfortunate mis-use of words. Why did someone not catch that? I'm sure the SAS appreciate that gaff.

ETA ... I find it very strange that there is publicity about this. I would think they would really want to keep that kind of training quiet rather than let kidnappers or terrorists know that the couple had had training.

I saw that on my twitter this morning too. Wonder why she removed it all of a sudden. However, if they did/will visit the areas effected by the riots, then they will be lifting some spirits, just like Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry have done.

In Birmingham with William. She looks lovely, but does anyone else think it's a bit weird to be so dressed up when visiting a poor area devastated by riots? Her outfit is McQueen and Prada, quite formal, dressy hair... doesn't match the occasion.

Ooh, it is a lovely outfit. I do love the gold buttons. So very chic indeed.

I'm the only one who thinks that skirt is perfect to cover a baby bump? :)

Based on what those around her are wearing, I'd think it would tacky if she wasn't dressed up.

Tacky? How so? So the officials who met her are dressed up, but if they're going to be out on the streets talking to people who were affected their clothes are just going to look out of touch.

Had a quick glance at the Selfridges website. I think something more like this would have been better:

Zip–shoulder tailored dress - PAUL SMITH BLACK - Dresses - Womenswear - Selfridges | Shop Online

Not in colour but in terms of shape/style...much more simple, and it sends out the message: "I care more about what's happened here than about what I'm wearing." Although if I'm being totally honest I would've loved to see her in jeans and flats, with her hair in a ponytail. Not going to happen though, I think that would be pushing it a bit, haha.

It's still possible to look smart-casual without wearing a flouncy frilled blouse and gold-buttoned skirt. See my last post (yes I would've loved to see her in jeans), but those are extremes. There is a middle ground. It's much more difficult when you're female because a guy can wear a suit and it just looks the same as every other suit, but given the sensitivity and poverty in the areas affected, and the destruction caused by the riots, simple is better. Like when she wore the grey dress:

I didn't say it was not possible, I said for her postion she looks as she should.. I agree there is a middle ground, but lets be truthful no matter what she wears she will be sensitive to the PEOPLE affected by the destruction of these riots.

It is my opinion she looks well, and it sounds like your's is that she would have struck a diffrent cord in a less formal outfit maybe/ maybe not. Different opinions make the world go arond. Happy Posting

I think she looks very appropriate. It's not like she showed up in a glittering red carpet style ball gown. I honestly thought nothing of the outfit. She fits in with those around her, in my opinion.
