I see nothing wrong with the outfit, I think it looks nice and suits her beautifully. However it isn't, IMO, appropriate for a wedding wear the bride looks so radiant.
I agree; it's a nice outfit but not for a wedding.

Also, Harry's trousers seem much too long, as if he's stepping on them.

Beauty is pain.

I just don't like how she is dressed in mourning clothes for a wedding. What woman wears black at a wedding?! I've been to countless weddings and I've never seen it.

I have seen black at a wedding, but as long as the bride isn't wearing any black - I don't really see a problem.

Really? I haven't seen it. It's not a problem if it's like a cocktail dress, but she looks like she's about to die.
Doesn't Kate have a stylist??

Maybe she bought the outfit before she was told that Royals only wear full black on funerals and so decided to give it a go before her own nuptials?

Huh? Do they really only wear it to funerals? I could swear I've seen pics of Camilla and Princess Diana in black dresses, no? And Bea and Eugenie? Am I remembering wrong?
I also have worn black to numerous weddings, including once as a bridesmaid :)

I've also seen black worn at wedding.

I think the problem might be the hat. I think if she had worn a maroon hat (to match the shoes and purse), it might have added a little more color to the outfit.

I love her shoes. They are great. I am not so sure about her dress and coat though.
And to be honest, I do not like the way Kate wears hats. It is always the same style. I can imagine she looks nice with big hats and her hair not always open but bound to a nice style.

I think Kate looks fabulous. Does the feather in her hat match the burgundy of her purse and shoe trim? If it does, the outfit is perfect. If it doesn't, it should have, IMO, but I think she looks great.

What is Catherine wearing? Is there a see-through blouse under what looks like a black velvet coat dress?

It's a dress, with a sheer triangle of material down the front of the dress.

Black is common at winter and evening weddings.

ETA: Different cultures and different parts of society do things differently. I imagine if Kate felt completely out of place at a wedding wearing black, she'd stop wearing black.

Ummm....the woman walking behind her is also wearing black and she is identified as a guest. So, apparently it isn't just Kate that got the "wear black" memo.

To my fellow TRF posters: If I invite you to my wedding please don't wear black (unless you look fabulous)! And don't wear white either! Lol lol

Seriously speaking, I get what everyone is saying but that's too much black IMO. Regardless of winter...it's a wedding! It's a special occasion and nobody is dying! But if one wants to wear black they could at least make it look elegant and classy, not bordering funeral attire. Somebody mentioned the lady that was behind Kate...she made it look even more like a funeral!! I live in sunny climates so maybe that's shaped my opinion.

She is definitively not wearing black - at least not according to my screen.

Looking at the lady behind Kate - who has been identified as a guest I know - I wonder though whether or not she mightn't be Kate's protection officer. I am suggesting that based on her shoes - low heels etc.
